Mandatory contender for the WBO heavyweight title, Alexander Usyk, began his psychological games with WBA / WBO / IBF world champion Anthony Joshua, who is to become his next contender.
The Ukrainian boxer, who regularly recorded video messages to his opponent in English before the previous fight against Derek Chisora, decided to apply similar tactics to Joshua.
“Anthony, how are you?” – said Usyk, while jumping on a rope.
