The ex-British and Commonwealth Light Heavyweight boxing champion, Peter Oboh, has said Anthony Joshua either stops Oleksandr Usyk in their rematch this evening in Saudi Arabia, or be stopped, as “someone must fall or be stopped; I hope it will not be Anthony Joshua.”
He said to be realistic, in most rematches in boxing history, the first winner most of the time comes out victorious again because of the confidence factor.
Oboh, who was WBA Light Heavyweight boxing champion but now a cleric, said: “To be historical, all that Usyk has achieve in the sport of boxing, Joshua has achieved as well.
“A gold medal in the Olympics? Joshua did as well. Winning multiple world titles in his boxing category, Joshua did as well.
“All that the current WBA, IBF and the WBO heavyweight champion, Oleksandr Usyk, has achieved in the world of boxing, Anthony Joshua did as well even in the bigger weight category.
“This shows that Joshua is meant to have a natural edge over Usyk because of strength factors.
“There are just two edges Usyk may have over Joshua in this fight. One, Usyk has not been beaten before by any professional boxer.
“Two, if Joshua decides to come in the ring the way Joshua he did in their last fight with zero confidence, Joshua will get stopped this time.
“But if Joshua recovers himself and be in his old form, he may stop Usyk in the 7th or 8th round in this their upcoming fight this evening,” Oboh added.
