Oleskandr Usyk is the best pound-for-pound fighter that Nigeria-born boxer Anthony Joshua will ever fight against according to the Ukrainian’s former opponent Tony Bellew.
Joshua will be gunning for a revenge mission against the Ukrainian – when they face off in a rematch on August 20 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Bellew, who was stopped by Usyk in the eighth round of their fight back in November 2018, has warned Joshua about the incredible skills that Usyk who has won 19 of his professional fights possesses.
“This will be the best boxer Anthony Joshua will ever face in his career, “Bellew told talkSPORTS.
“When it comes to natural, pure boxing, Oleksandr Usyk is the most natural boxer Anthony Joshua will ever face. He is unbelievable at what he does.”
After beating Bellew three years ago, Usyk moved up to heavyweight and has fought on three occasions since then.
