Anthony Joshua defends his WBA, IBF and WBO belts against the Ukrainians on Saturday
London-At today’s weighing ceremony, the belief that Anthony Joshua would lose weight in an attempt to counter the speed of Oleksandr Usek’s battle for the world heavyweight championship was abandoned.
“I don’t really pay attention to what my weight is.” Joshua stated, “I don’t know what causes so many weight-related topics.” “Maybe it’s because people can see that we are the biggest weight.
Joshua defended his WBA/IBF/WBO belts during a match against Ukraine. He announced a weight of 240 pounds (109 kg) on a London scale. This is the same result that he achieved in December against Kubrat Pulev.
The challenger weighs in at 221 pounds (100kg). Joshua was shorter than Usik (7.6 cm) as well as his wingspan (10 cm). More than 60,000 spectators attended the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to witness the match.
Usik was the undisputed heavyweight world champion. His weight gain since he entered the top league in 2019 has been heavier than the previous two games. However, Joshua will still lose 19 lbs. (9 kg).
Usek is well-known for his boxing and mobility skills. He won the heavyweight gold medal at London Olympics 2012 because of his amateur career. Joshua also won a super heavyweight gold. The next day was the same.
They both relaxed and patted one another’s arms as they weighed each other before turning their backs.
“I respect? Are you afraid? Joshua stated, “It’s just a fight.” I will not disrespect anyone if they don’t respect me. I respect. He has accomplished extraordinary things.”
He has made extraordinary achievements.
