Anthony Joshua Could Be Facing Oleksandr Usyk And It's Already Been Simulated
By Mike Parrott
Mandatory WBO Challenger, Oleksander Usyk has been demanded to face Anthony Joshua within the next 180 days. The fight has already been simulated thanks to games though.
After Anthony Joshua reclaimed his WBO Championship belt, among others, from Andy Ruiz Jr, he has a mandatory Challenger waiting for him.
Oleksander Usyk has been named the madatory Challenger for the WBO title and the WBO has given Anthony Joshua 180 days to fight Usyk, or he has to vacate the title.
The vacating of the belt seems very likely with Usyk being a client of Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing. The majority of Boxing fans believe this will be the case.
However, the video game, Fight Night Champions has already helped us find out who would win.
A YouTube Channel named 'Boxing Fight Simulations', ran the simulation last month to see who would win this potential future fight.

The fight sim has the fight going back and forth between the Boxers with both of them hitting the mat throughout the fight.
Usyk hit the mat the first time in the middle of the third round by an AJ right hook to the face. Usyk put the Brit to the floor at the end of the fourth round with a straight left to Joshua's face.
However, the winner was Anthony Joshua, bizarrely knocking out Usyk with a Body jab in the sixth round of the simulation.
This fight could become a reality in the next 180 days if AJ wants to hold onto his WBO Championship belt. However, its only a matter of time that AJ is in the ring again.
