Heavyweight Insight: Joshua Bets on Usyk Over Fury!

Ex-heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua has thrown in his two cents on the anticipated title clash between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury and also dished out his preferred opponent. "It's gonna be a sizzler of a fight. I'm putting my money on Usyk for the edge. But hey, it's no skin off my back. I just want them to step out of the ring like they stepped in—healthy. This ain't no pillow fight. All I wish for them is to walk away unscathed.

As for me? This showdown's not gonna ruffle my feathers. I'm not the type to bawl over wins and losses. Life rolls on. Hats off to both warriors" quipped Joshua.

And about stepping into the ring with one of these titans? "Going toe-to-toe with Tyson Fury would be a knockout choice. It's the bout fans are drooling for, and it's right up my alley," Joshua remarked.

Mark your calendars: Usyk and Fury are set to rumble on February 17, while Joshua's next showdown with Ngannou is lined up for March 8.
