“I have to like Usyk. I feel that Usyk boxed to order last time and could have stopped him,” Frank Warren told Professional boxing fan. “I think he’ll enjoy the fight even more and bring it to him.”
Coach Joe Gallagher said: “As AJ improved, Usyk improved. “I think Usyk’s professional career is a continuation of his Olympic career.
“When you’re an Olympic athlete, you’re used to going around, fighting the best in the world all the time in tournaments.
“You look at his professional career and what he’s done in titles, the number of champions he’s beaten in their own backyard. Just another day at Usyk’s office.
“I just think that as Anthony will improve more and the adjustments that Garcia will make and think about, Oleksandr Usyk won’t be like a kid who has appeared.
“We don’t have Andy Ruiz or Buster Douglas overweight or anything. We are dealing with Usyk here, a world class athlete. As AJ will improve much, Usyk will also adjust.
“As for AJ, people say you have to go out and put it on him, but he’s going to take more shots than last time.
