JAKARTA - Mike Tyson doesn't seem to think Anthony Joshua has a good chance of beating Oleksandr Usyk in the upcoming rematch.
Britain's Joshua will fight Ukrainian Usyk for the second time next Saturday in a bid to reclaim the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles he handed to Usyk last year.
Many believe AJ - Joshua's nickname - will face a tough challenge in the rematch.
Usyk emphatically won the first game, but AJ has overhauled his entire training staff in a bid to turn things around.
"It's going to be tough to beat him," Tyson said on an Instagram live recently. "It will be difficult to beat Usyk because he is fast and he beat Joshua with his punches."
"Joshua has to learn to handle Usyk's jab. That's the only thing he can't handle, he can't handle Usyk's jab and moves," Tyson added.
"(AJ's) hit is strong, but he's not accurate - you have to be accurate against people like that (Usyk). Because he moves so much, his jab is trained."
