Anthony Joshua vs Oleksander Usyk Prop Betting Selection

Prop: Anthony Joshua Wins By Decision (+300)

If Anthony Joshua is to win this fight (which I think he will) then he will most likely need to simply take the same approach as he did against Andy Ruiz in the rematch. Which is essentially stick and move, avoid the power shots, and use the jab at a consistent rate throughout the fight. He needs to keep Usyk constantly thinking about the power jab and the counters coming back as Usyk tries to come forward and throw power with reckless abandonment.

Usyk, when he senses a fighter is hurt, loves to swarm in and go for the kill. Joshua has been caught before by a smaller, less powerful fighter in Andy Ruiz which cost him his titles and marked his first loss on his record. He was able to easily win the rematch by being very cautious of Ruiz’s power and picking his spots when to attack. I think Joshua will look to have the same game plan and avoid taking any chances getting caught by a Usyk power shot.

I’m picking Anthony Joshua to earn a decision victory over Oleksandr Usyk and successfully defend his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles in hopes of a huge money fight with the winner of Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder trilogy fight

Thanks for reading and best of luck!
