Anthony Joshua vs Usyk: British actor Idris Elba predicts winner

The British actor expressed confidence that Anthony Joshua will defeat Oleksandr Usyk in their heavyweight encounter in London on Saturday (today).

“I reckon he’ll have it in the sixth,” said Idris Elba.

“I’m very confident that AJ has got this one, but it won’t be easy.

“He’s a mate and I’m proud of him.”

Joshua is facing a stern test in his bid to record his 25th career win against Oleksandr Usyk, a former undisputed cruiserweight world champion in London on Saturday (today).

Joshua has recorded 24 wins and a loss in 25 bouts since he turned professional in 2013.

That loss came in the form of a massive upset when Andy Ruiz Jr. claimed an against-all-odds victory at Madison Square Garden in New York in 2019.

Incidentally, the fight against Usyk is Joshua’s third fight on English soil in the last three years after his wins over Alexander Povetkin at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium in 2018 and Wladimir Klitschko.

Usyk is the second Ukrainian boxer Joshua will be hoping to defeat after he technically knocked out Klitschko at the Wembley Stadium in London, England in 2017.

The 34-year-old Ukrainian on his part has won all his 18 professional fights and Joshua will be the third British fighter that Usyk will face after beating Tony Bellew in November 2018 and Derek Chisora in October 2020.

Joshua and Usyk each won Olympic gold medals at London 2012. Since then, while Joshua has become a two-time heavyweight champion, Usyk won the undisputed cruiserweight title.
