Mike Tyson does not seem to fancy Anthony Joshua’s chances of beating Oleksandr Usyk in their upcoming rematch.
The Brit is set to face the Ukrainian for a second time live on talkSPORT next Saturday as he attempts to win back the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight world titles that he lost to him last year.
Many feel the rematch will be an uphill battle for AJ.
Usyk won the first fight comprehensively, but Joshua has changed his entire training team to try and reverse the result.
“It’s gonna be hard to beat him,” Tyson said on Instagram live.
“It’s gonna be hard to beat Usyk because he’s fast and he outpunched Joshua with his jab.
“Joshua has to learn to deal with his jab.
“That’s the only thing he couldn’t handle, he couldn’t handle his jab and his movement.
“He’s too fast for Joshua.
“Joshua has to put a lot of pressure on him and keep it on him all night.
“He’s a powerful puncher, but he’s not as accurate – you’ve gotta be accurate against a guy like that.
“Because he moves so much, the jab is educated and he just outsmarts the guy.”
