Anthony Joshua needs to rough up Oleksandr Usyk so badly in match he nearly gets DISQUALIFIED, advises David Haye | The Sun

DAVID HAYE has told Anthony Joshua that he must rough up Oleksandr Usyk so badly that he risks disqualification in their rematch.

AJ was outclassed over 12 rounds last September as he lost the heavyweight world titles to the Ukrainian.


But the British star will get his shot at redemption on August 20 in Saudi Arabia.

Haye picked Joshua to win that first fight at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and is backing him again.

However, he insists that AJ must push the rules as far as he can to reclaim the belts from Usyk.

And urging him to employ the dark arts, Haye added: “I think he’s [Joshua] watched it back and knows what he needs to do.

“He’s got a good team who’s gonna drill it into him that this is not a boxing match, this has got to be a dog fight from the first bell.

“He should be this close to getting a point deducted or disqualified, that’s how physical he needs to be because he’s a specimen like no other in the heavyweight division.
