OLEKSANDR USYK Reveals How He Saw Anthony Joshua’s ‘Awkward’ Pre-Fight Body Language Back in September.
The Watford Warriors lost their world title against Ukraine at Tottenham Stadium three months ago.
The new champion Usyk, now 34, opened up on AJ’s ‘weird’ behavior prior to that showdown.
Speaking to Forbes, he said: “Of course, my team and I take note of it.
“They observe and analyze … I was surprised because he was kind of distracted, chewing on the mouthguard as he was.
“That’s why I thought it was weird.”
Joshua will bid to regain the unified heavyweight title from his Ukrainian champ early next year.
Speaking about his loss recently, AJ told IFL TV: “At times I wake up in the morning and fights and fights are on my mind. You sleep on it after the fight.

“You sleep on it after a fight and then what happens is that you wake up on it and I wake up on it and that’s the right thing because you have to use it as fuel for the day.
“I think about it a lot and not only on material things but here as well. I think about it a lot.
“It made me think a lot and I could move on but I just care, I really care. I don’t think, ‘Eh, that’s a loss’. I really care deeply. “
