Fans are all saying the same thing as Oleksandr Usyk posts training pictures ahead of Anthony Joshua rematch | The Sun

OLEKSANDR USYK has impressed fans with his latest training pictures.

The Ukrainian is hard at work preparing for his highly-anticipated rematch with Anthony Joshua.


Usyk, 35, snatched the Brit's heavyweight belts by comfortably outpointing him at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last September.

The pair were supposed to meet again in May, although the ongoing war in Ukraine delayed the bout.

Usyk joined his country's military in the wake of Russia's invasion, but was later given permission by Ukraine's sports minister to return to training.

The 35-year-old is looking in imperious shape as he gears up for his second Joshua showdown.
