Usyk is an undisputed champion. Joshua has shed a couple of pounds to be faster and more agile, given the competition at hand. AJ also shared his progress in an Instagram post to show off his leaner physique. Both fighters have shown a great amount of respect for each other. This will be one of the important fights for Usyk since he jumped in the heavyweight category. If he beats Joshua, it will be a highlight of his career.
