‘FREAK’ USYK DANGEROUS FOR AJ
Tony Bellew has warned Anthony Joshua that Oleksandr Usyk is a ‘freak.’
Usyk knocked Bellew out in Manchester in 2018, something the former fighter has not forgotten.
Bellew said: “He hits enough to get your respect, it’s not like you’re just going to walk through him.
“It’s not going to be that easy and he also sets traps that don’t allow you to do that. But you can hit his body and tire him as well.
“You’ve got to make him engage mentally; he is so far ahead of everyone mentally in the game, he doesn’t tire.
“I was amazed! I thought what I was doing to him in the fight was making him miss and then countering him, and I expected him to tire.
“And the freak didn’t tire, he just kept getting stronger and stronger. Mate, he is unbelievable, I can’t emphasise enough how good he is.”
