The Ukrainian entered the UK and gave AJ a message, simply saying: “Hello Anthony, here I am.”

Usyak’s clash with Joshua, 31, will be his third outing in the heavyweight division – which he gatecrashed in October 2019.

But the Olympic gold medalist worries more about her son’s first days at school than his bid to become a two-division world champion.

The Cat said: “At the moment I don’t think about Anthony Joshua.

“I don’t think about what he will do, what he will use or how he will box.

“I just have a little time to finish my training camp, all I can think about.

“Right now I think more about how my son feels at school because he just started first grade and he really didn’t want to go and do that.

“He was saying: ‘I don’t want to go to school, Dad. I’m bored at school and you’re not there.’

“But now everything is fine, he seems to have calmed down.

“So I probably think more about what Anthony Joshua would do in the ring.”

Oleksandr Usik on his struggle with Anthony Joshua

Usyk scored a unanimous decision victory over Derek Chisora ​​in his last outing last November, but was less than impressed with his performance.

And the cunning southpaw believes Joshua’s team will be in for a rude awakening if they expect an easy victory on the back of their last outing.

He said: “I am very grateful to everyone who supports me and everyone else but they expect too much from athletes.

“Some of them very much don’t understand what is happening in the ring, how difficult it is or in some cases how easy it is.

“People just have an image of what they think of.

“The fact is I boxed Derek for 12 rounds but he’s actually a really tough guy to beat.

“If you look at his two fights with Tyson Fury, he’s gone 22 rounds with him.”
