David Haye: How Anthony Joshua can reclaim belt from Oleksandr Usyk

Anthony Joshua was left with a badly damaged right eye after his heavyweight defeat to Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday night and was checked over by medics following the 12-round contest.

Former boxer David Haye has revealed that he’s convinced Anthony Joshua can avenge his defeat to Oleksandr Usyk and reclaim his belts if he adjusts his approach and boxes more proactively.

In an interview with iFL TV, Haye stated that Joshua was outboxed and dethroned by Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday night.

He said: “Anthony Joshua has a chance to reclaim his titles, it is going to be a mega, mega match. A fight that I believe AJ can win,” Haye told iFL TV.

“Looking at this fight you would say no, but he has what it takes. But he needs to change a lot of fundamental things in his game.

“He does not have the physical attributes of Anthony Joshua but was able to win significantly more of the rounds in a very, very close fight.

“So if Anthony Joshua uses his physical attributes in the fight – it is no good looking at them in the mirror, they have got to be implemented in the fight.

“If they can be forced on Usyk, he can reclaim the titles. But if he tries to have a boxing match or does anything remotely close to what he was doing on Saturday night, it’ll be the same again.”
