“He had like 400 amateur fights,” he said. AJ in an interview with iFL TV. “He has faced fighters who tried to mess up his fight a million times. So trying to adapt to just one style is silly. “
Nevertheless, Joshua threatens to change his attitude, and be much tougher and more violent in the rematch with Usyk.
“I have one thing in mind, and that is war, murder,” he warns. Joshua. “It’s a war, I want to go out and hurt the guy. Take away his soul, to the point where he prefers to give up. That’s what boxing is all about, I’ve learned it. Hitting constantly, applying pressure, until they realize you’re not going anywhere, you’re there to stay. As for my fight plan, it’s all I have in mind, at least for the moment. I’ll stay the course, and lead Usyk to places he does not want to go ”.
