Former super middleweight champion Carl Froch believes Nigeria born British pugilist Anthony Joshua needs to have a rematch with Usyk to prove that his defeat was a fluke. Incidentally be also believes that AJ bashing was no fluke.
“Let’s get the rematch with AJ and Usyk to make sure it wasn’t a fluke win. Unfortunately for AJ, I don’t think it was. Usyk is a tough night for anyone” he submitted.
Meanwhile Froch has said he would not be surprised if Tyson Fury retired from boxing.
Last weekend at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Fury secured one of the biggest wins of his pro career when he knocked out Deontay Wilder in the eleventh round of their trilogy fight.
Fury retained the WBC heavyweight title when he overcame two knockdowns in the fourth round, to eventually drop Wilder in the tenth and then again in the eleventh for the stoppage.
At 33-years-old, Fury has made a boatload of money. And during his pro run, Fury captured every possible title in the division.
During a recent interview, Fury indicated that he currently doesn’t know what the future holds for his boxing career.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if he retired. Depending upon how much he loves the sport, and how much he wants to go in there and do it all again, I wouldn’t be surprised if Fury says: ‘I have done my bit and now I am finished,'” Fury told Sky Sports.
“People want to see AJ rectify his bad performance against Usyk, or maybe even see Usyk against Fury. As a boxing fan, I want to see Usyk take on Fury. I don’t think he can do it – I think Fury is too big, too clever for him. Usyk is fantastic, ridiculously skillful and technically proficient but he isn’t a big enough guy for Fury.
“I am putting myself in Fury’s shoes. The last thing he will want to do at the moment is talk about who to fight next. I would not be surprised if he has one eye on retirement.
It was an awesome performance by both guys. Wilder ran out of steam, he gassed. He was a bit heavier for the fight which was a problem. Fury calls himself ‘the Gyspy King’ and he really is a king. He is the king of the heavyweight division.”
