Having been dominated by Ukranian pro Usyk at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium just under a year ago, Anthony Joshua will be desperate to clock up a convincing win in Saudi Arabia and cement his place in boxing history by becoming a three-time world champion. A bad defeat could see the 2012 Olympic gold medallist announce his retirement.
The latter scenario is a very real possibility. Talented southpaw Usyk is arguably the more dangerous boxer, having already proven once that he has the raw speed and skill to outsmart AJ. Fellow heavyweight Tyson Fury is one of many pundits tipping Uysk:
"In heavyweight boxing, it only takes one punch," Fury told reporters. "It wasn’t a complete landslide last time, Usyk had a lot of marks on his face, he was cut up. He’s not hard to hit, Usyk, he’s right there in front of you. So, Joshua can obviously land a big punch, but I just think that Usyk’s too cute for him."
Can Joshua snatch Usyk's WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO titles, and move a step closer to a blockbuster showdown with undefeated heavyweight king Tyson Fury? Or will it be curtains for the Brit's career?
