Oleksandr Usyk has been warned ‘it’s only a matter of time’ before Anthony Joshua imposes his size to break down the masterful challenger.
Helping AJ prepare with slick southpaw sparring have been Australian Demsey McKean and German Shokran Parwani.
Both have given their insight to SunSport, predicting a slow burner as Joshua, 31, gradually makes his presence known, before closing the show towards the backend.
McKean, 30, said: “I think AJ gets the later round stoppage, in the later rounds. He has to break him down a bit first.
“He’s the biggest heavyweight going so I think it’s only a matter of time until he breaks him down and gets the stoppage win.”
And Parwani, 29, added: “My fight prediction is I think AJ will stop him at the end of the rounds.
“He is conditioned for 15 rounds, he’s sparred guys, six guys, different attributes, different styles, different techniques.”
