boxing, heavyweight | Ex-Klitschko opponent fears Joshua’s resignation

The countdown is running! In 45 days, world champion Oleksandr Usyk and former champion Anthony Joshua meet in Saudi Arabia for the eagerly awaited rematch. Ex-heavyweight David Haye fears it could be the last fight of “AJ’s” boxing career.

When Anthony Joshua steps into the ring to reclaim his world championship belt from Oleksandr Usyk on August 20, it could be the last time fans see the former Klitschko conqueror on the big boxing stage. At least that’s what former heavyweight David Haye thinks, who believes that “AJ’s” resignation in the event of a defeat is quite possible.

“If he doesn’t win I’m not sure he wants to stay in a sport where he’s not the best,” Haye said.Sun“. Joshua is just a winner type: “And if he loses again, I don’t know what he will do next.”

In the first fight against Usyk, Joshua suffered a clear defeat on points. Although “AJ” was not without a chance, the Ukrainian’s victory was undisputed in the end. Nevertheless, his compatriot noticed in the first duel that he could defeat Usyk, Haye explained. “But if he does everything right this time and Usyk still beats him, I don’t know if there’s anything left for him to do in the sport.”

Haye: Joshua can beat Usyk

Despite the possibility of another Joshua loss, Haye is adamant the dethroned world champion has what it takes to turn the tables in the rematch.

“He thinks he has all the skills to beat Usyk, and I think so too, with the right plan, he can win,” said the former professional boxer.

Haye has great confidence in Joshua’s new trainer Robert Garcia regarding the fight plan. In terms of tactics and game plan, the first fight against Usyk was the worst in Joshua’s career, Haye judged. “So I’m sure Robert Garcia won’t do it again.”
