Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua face off incredibly soon in a fight could potentially define the legacy of Joshua, currently one of the biggest draws in boxing.

Joshua lost a fairly convincing decision to the smaller Ukrainian boxer back in September last year, struggling with the technical boxing and pure speed of Usyk, who has spent a significant portion of his boxing career fighting at cruiserweight.

Can Joshua make the adjustments necessary to change the clear outcome of the first fight? It'll be a significant challenge, but Joshua has bounced back from defeat before. After losing to Andy Ruiz in 2019 he came back and won a convincing decision just six months later.
