AJ was given a boxing lesson by Usyk in Tottenham clashed with Tottenham last SeptemberR, so much so that retired heavyweight David Price reckons the slick men’s soccer team will still beat the British.

I said talkSPORT: “I just thought Usyk had his number.

“Every fighter has an opponent that fights that style and that man in particular.

“You’re going to have to be really lucky to win the war.”

Smooth operator Usyk is yet to make a costly mistake in a 19-match career, and Price cannot see a single mistake in his first defense of the unified title.

He continued: “You can get lucky, but luck also creates itself with the mistakes the opponent makes.

“I don’t think Usyk is the one to make the mistake of putting himself in the position of being knocked out by an Anthony Joshua punch.”

SunSport understands Joshua and Usyk’s second dance is slated for late March or early April.

“Taking his soul to the point of wanting to give up.

“That’s the thing about boxing, I learned that.

“You hit people constantly, keep putting a certain amount of pressure, before they know it, they’ll realize you’re not going anywhere, you’re here to stay.

“With the game plan, that’s all I have in mind at the moment, that a path, let’s go in the right direction, takes this guy where he doesn’t want to go.”
