Joshua e Usyk se encontrarão no Tottenham Hotspur Stadium na noite de sábado
Joshua and Usyk will step into the ring at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London as they clash for the IBF, Cintos WBA e WBO.
E fúria, quem detém o título WBC, deseja que o britânico Joshua chegue ao topo contra o invicto ucraniano.
Ele disse: “Eu assisto todas as lutas de boxe, cada um que acontece eu assisto, então é claro que vou assistir a uma luta pelo campeonato dos pesos pesados, com certeza.
“Eu quero que ele ganhe? Definitely. Because it doesn’t make much sense in me beating Usyk up. I’d much prefer to beat Joshua up, it’s a bigger fight and people want to see it more.
“He’s got a tough fight, você sabe? Usyk is no mug. People say to me, ‘He’s too small,’ and this and that, but the guy is bigger than Muhammad Ali, he’s bigger than Mike Tyson and he’s bigger than Evander Holyfield.
“All them guys, big, same size and the same weight. He’s definitely a good fighter. If Usyk does win then he will cost us a few quid. Então de novo, we have lost plenty of money in the past so it doesn’t really matter, does it? There’s plenty to go around.”
Fury and Joshua were set to meet in an undisputed clash in the summer before an arbitrator ruled that Deontay Wilder had the contractual right to a trilogy fight with Fury.
And so the 33-year-old Briton will now face Wilder in Las Vegas on 9 October as they bid to put their rivalry to bed once and for all.
There is an expectation among those in the sport that the winner of Joshua-Usyk will face the winner of Fury-Wilder III next year.
