You really compared Olympic Gold medalist, Undisputed Champion, top 3 Cruiserweight all time, current top 10 P4P to Granada????!! OK then.
I get it if you're a Joshua fan or if you just think Joshua wins but Usyk is a top class boxer. Saying otherwise is just wrong

Usyk is a beast. Easily the best prospect Joshua has faced and I'm picking him. Joshua is overrated. Record's more padded than a flat-chested *****'s bra.

@Mikey1903

Don't forget that the only reason Usyk moved up to Heavyweight in the first place was to duck the current Cruiserweight sensation Jake Paul!

Money, Legacy and competition  be the biggest reason. Heavyweight just have more people so bigger fights and more money. Also being heavyweight champ mean more. Also really help legacy being multi divisional champion. Usyk believe he'll kick every fighter at heavyweight ass. Rightfully so as dude is really good. So why not

Evender Holyfield was a cruiserweight for a example and he’s one of the greatest boxers of all time because of the move to heavyweight

I still believe this is not a competition. If you look at who fought usyk, that's not the top of the heavy weight. Show it first against, for example, Parker, or White. I think it's weird that AJ doesn't get the respect he deserves. His only loss against ruiz... But after that he showed himself again. Usyk is a good boxer but not against these kind of legends. my opinion huh

Hahahaha really Baldric? AJ has a padded record? Yeah we're not gonna sit here and make up lies. I'm American and honestly don't care about AJ either way but padded? Really? Kevin Johnson, Dillian Whyte, Charles Martin, Dominic Breazeale, Eric Molina, Wladimir Klitschko, Carlos Takam, Joseph Parker, Alexander Povetkin, Andy Ruiz & Kubrat Pulev. By far the most title defenses currently over top 10 ranked guys. For years now. And is now taking on Usyk of all people. Lol yeah we aren't gonna make up lies like children here. Padded. Lmao

It's 1 of the things that I find most funny when people talk about fights/fighters.
People love to say "this guys records padded" "he beat nobody". etc.
If you think about it you're taking credit away from the Fighter you support by saying his opponent has a padded record. You should be talking his opponent up so when you're guy beats him, he beat a killer!

Joshua has a padded record? OK, so Olympic Gold medals, wins over more top 10 opponents than any other active Heavyweight, beaten multiple World Champions, schooled the guy who beat him in the rematch. Knocked out all but 2 opponents. If that's padded then what do you need to do to be good??!!!!

Same go's for Usyk. He is just as accomplished only at Cruiserweight. But I'd say Usyk was a better Cruiserweight than Joshua is a Heavyweight.

I'm still trying to figure out what my final prediction for this fight is. It's taking so long because both guys are very good!!!

Joshua looks good because Heavyweight Boxing is a Joke in 2021. It's a desert. It isn't that he's exceptional. It's that he's mediocre in a landscape of absolute jobbers. Even a mouldy sandwich is standout in a basket of turds. Half of the people Joshua has beaten are fat ancient sluggers who would have been beaten by mid-thirties butterbean. I'm surprised Povetkin's leg didn't fall off when he climbed through the ropes for his fight with Joshua TBH. If you combined the ages of Joshua's opponents the number would stretch back into pre-history. The Paleolithic period.

I can't even remember the last time HW Boxing was deep. The 90's?

Anyway, I'll still watch it and shake my fist angrily at the sky and tell anyone who'll listen how the whole division is a shower of gob****es while doing so, thankyou.

I personally think Joshua will be overwhelming for Usyk. Yeah, Usyk has that speed advantage but keep in mind that Joshua is like a much better version of Frank Bruno and is bigger. Also just being bias in my pick also.

For me the ruiz loss and pitiful out pointing makes aj a paper champ he must fight deontay or tyson to redeem himself.
With a speed and smaller target advantage, taken less damage and smarter overall  Usk should get more respect.
Point im making is this is lose lose for AJ he wins he beat a cruiser he loses hes a glass jawed nothing.
For the record I had Tyson easily dec or tko late rounds back when he was ducking him.

Whining about Anthony Joshua not fighting Deontay Wilder proves that you're a casual fan that knows nothing about boxing.
