Anthony Joshua REFUSED COMPENSATION FOR A REMATCH WITH Alexander Usyk / Tyson Fury - Usyk FIGHT

British boxer Anthony Joshua categorically refused to concede to compatriot Tyson Fury the right to fight with Ukrainian Alexander Usyk
This was stated by one of the members of the management team of the British heavyweight David Gansa, talkSPORT reports.

According to him, the boxer's promoter Eddie Hearn received a categorical refusal to allow Tyson Fury to fight for the title of absolute world champion with Alexander Usyk, and then meet with the winner of their fight.

"To be honest, Eddie Hearn and I talked to Freddie Cunningham, Anthony Joshua's manager and a few other guys. We just started talking, as he "shut us up". It was a complete rejection. AJ knows that as a management team, we are going to explore all options for him. But he is fully focused on fixing everything in the rematch," Gansa said.

Alexander Usyk defeated Anthony Joshua on September 25 in London and took away the WBO (World Boxing Organization), WBA (World Boxing Association) and IBF (International Boxing Federation) world heavyweight titles from him.

In the spring of 2022, a rematch is planned between Usyk and Joshua, which was stipulated by the contract for the first fight.

Promising Cuban heavyweight Frank Sanchez (20-0, 13 KOs) after defeating the experienced Christian Hammer criticized the boxing skills of the current heavyweight world champions Tyson Fury and Alexander Usyk and expressed a desire to fight them.

"Now I want to meet the best. I need opponents from the top 5. Fury or Usyk? Yes. I'm knocking out Fury, he doesn't have boxing skills. A mustache? It will be even easier. The fact is that he is maneuverable, but he does not have the same technique as me," Sanchez said in an interview posted on the EsNews YouTube channel.

Sanchez, speaking in amateurs, has held 220 fights in the ring and won them 214 times, including two victories over Erislandi Savon. Frank is also a multiple Cuban champion.

Former world heavyweight champion Denis Lebedev believes that the owner of the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight titles Alexander Usyk will again defeat Anthony Joshua in a rematch.

"Of course, the main event in 2021 is the victory of Alexander Usyk over Joshua. Can Usyk be considered a favorite in the rematch? My answer is this: when was Fury's re-fight with Wilder… In short, the meaning is the same. I may be wrong, I don't predict 100 percent, but I think the outcome of the fight will be the same.

Alexander Usyk will be more confident, and Joshua, of course, is a bully, a huge guy... I would like to say that I respect this person. He is great as a person and an athlete, but for this fight, which was with a Mustache, not for him personally, but for his corner, I put not just a deuce, but a stake. But the corner of Alexander Usyk - a five plus. Therefore, I think that the outcome of the second fight will be the same," Denis Lebedev said.


Permanent sparring partner and coach of the former world heavyweight champion (over 90.7 kg) American Deontay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) Malik Scott in an interview with a local blogger expressed his opinion about the upcoming rematch between the Ukrainian IBF/WBO/WBA title holder Alexander Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs) and the ex-holder of these titles Briton Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs).

Malik Scott was also a sparring partner of Usyk in several training camps, which he told later in the conversation.

— You have sparred many times with Usyk for several years, right?

- yes.

— Have you sparred with Joshua?

- No, but we were at the camp together.

— Is he a nice guy?

- yes.

— And what about his rematch with Usyk? What should Joshua do differently?

— I hate to sound corny, I try to speak differently from most others. Because most people can't even distinguish between blows. But here I have to agree with the majority. He can't be that big and not be able to use it, not use it with one of the smallest fighters he's ever fought. In my opinion, this is the perfect time for him to use his good position selection, his good size…

— And he can. He is a very talented fighter.

"He's strong. He must use what God has given him, with which he has shaped himself, physically and psychologically. But at the same time, I personally believe that he will have to deal with someone who has miscalculated him. I think Usyk is not someone he can comfortably fight on the back foot and win. If I were a gambler, I would bet that the rematch would be more interesting, but it would end with a victory for Usyk.
