Anthony Joshua told Derek Chisora ​​it was “GOOD” to KO Oleksander Usyk’s rematch instead of losing on points

DEREK CHISORA thinks Anthony Joshua should be beaten by Oleksander Usyk rather than lose on points again.

AJ was convincingly beaten by Usyk last September over 12 rounds and the pair will now face off again in Saudi Arabia on August 20th.

And Chisora ​​has urged his former Finchley Amateur Boxing teammate to stake all his chips – even at the risk of a KO loss.

Chisora, 37, told iFL TV: “Let me tell you something, if AJ goes KO it’s good for him.

“If he loses on points, it’s bad for him. If he loses on points, he’ll be kicking himself for the next 20 years.”

“If he’s knocked out, he’s out. There’s nothing you can do if you’re KO’d in the fifth round.”

Chisora, who was beaten by Usyk in 2020, gives the two-weight world champion just eight rounds for KO AJ.

But he thinks the time frame actually suits Joshua, 32, better.

Chisora ​​added: “In boxing, if you’re going to be knocked out, it’s a better way to go out, but I don’t think so [that’s how Usyk will win].

“Usyk can only KO AJ in the later rounds, but he won’t KO him in the first eight. AJ will KO him.”

Chisora ​​returns to the O2 Arena in London on July 9 and takes on Kubrat Pulev.

The Londoner was beaten by a split decision by Pulev, 41, in 2016 and is out for revenge.

Joshua’s move to Usyk, 35, has yet to be announced by promoter Eddie Hearn, who confirmed to SunSport a deal has been struck.
