The pair won Olympic gold in 2012 and have shown a lot of respect for each other in the run up to this fight. Joshua said ahead of the fight
"Respect? Fear? It's just a fight. I'm not someone who will be disrespectful unless someone is disrespectful to me.
I respect the man. He has achieved phenomenal things."

Joshua definitely learned from experience that he cannot underestimate any opponent. Losing to Andy Ruiz Jr almost derailed his career. However, Joshua is in his eleventh consecutive world title fight and if he wants to make it twelve against Tyson Fury he will need to put in a good performance against the tough Usyk.
