JOSHUA INVOKES GOD AHEAD HEAVYWEIGHT BOUT AGAINST USYK

As he prepares for a rematch against Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday, Nigerian-born heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua has invoked God in prayers.

The rematch is scheduled to hold in Saudi Arabia this weekend.

In a video of himself doing press-ups posted on Twitter, Joshua wrote, “Out my hands and leave in God’s,” adding a meme of hands lifted in prayers.

Joshua, a two-time world champion, will seek revenge against Usyk, who defeated him last September, claiming the WBA (Super), IBF and WBO heavyweight titles.

The 35-year-old Ukrainian handed Joshua a second defeat in his boxing career, following Andy Ruiz Jr.

In 2019, Joshua bounced back from the defeat, reclaiming his title from Ruiz.

If Joshua beat Usyk on Saturday, it would be the second time he bounced back from defeat to reclaim his titles.
