    Joshua on Fury fight

    Anthony Joshua has joked he will lure heavyweight rival Tyson Fury back into boxing should he beat Oleksandr Usyk in their rematch.

    The Gypsy King called time on his glistening career in April after brutally knocking out Dillian Whyte at Wembley to retain his WBC title.

    Speaking on a media call ahead of his rematch to face Usyk, Joshua was asked whether he can bring Fury out of retirement should he beat the unbeaten Ukrainian.`

    To which a laughing AJ said: "Yeah I can bring him out of retirement, 100 per cent.

    "I think he'll bring himself out of retirement, you hear what I'm saying? I think he'll bring himself out of retirement, s***…"

    Joshua taking pay cut

    AJ is banking a basic £33.2million for tomorrow’s Saudi-funded showdown with Oleksandr Usyk — a pay cut of £13m!

    The Watford man trousered £46m when he regained his world heavyweight titles from Andy Ruiz Jr in Riyadh three years ago.

    But now AJ, beaten by Usyk 11 months ago, has been forced to take a lesser amount as he tries to get the WBA, IBF and WBO belts back from the Ukrainian warrior.

    Usyk will bag the same £33.2m pay packet as the challenger when the pair clash in Jeddah.

    And the victor is in line for a bonus based on the pay-per-view buys on Sky Sports in the UK and on DAZN around the world.

    Tale of the tape

    How the fighters compare ahead of tomorrow night's big one.

    Joshua, 32, was bettered over 12 rounds but has since changed trainers and vowed to come in with an all-new style.

    Whereas Usyk, 35, appears to have bulked up in preparation for the rematch on Saturday in Saudi Arabia.

    Weigh to go!

    Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk weigh in TODAY for their HUGE, huge rematch tomorrow night in Saudi Arabi.

    Last time out, in September 2021, there was over a STONE of difference between the pair with AJ weighing in at 17st 2bs to Usyk's 15st 8lbs.

    But this time Usyk could weigh over 16st, with the Ukrainian hero looking to have bulked up considerably.

    According to trainer Dave Coldwell, who coached Tony Bellew against the heavyweight champion, this is the wrong approach to take.

    Coldwell said: "From an Usyk point of view, I get that he is going to be more aggressive and look to land bigger shots but with his mobility and speed being his two greatest assets they will take a hit.

    "It’s going to slow him down, if you’re losing speed, you’re giving more options to be hit and not only that I believe that AJ really needs to focus on going to Usyk’s body to take away his legs."
