The 34-year-old, as Post put it, had ‘the spirit of that fight week’ as he finally got his shot at a second world championship.


And Ukrainian electro-folk band Kazka was their backing track as they pulled off moves in the gym.

On Monday, the fighter and his team arrived in London wearing matching tracksuits.

Despite having faced only two 91kg fights to date, Usyk remains a formidable opponent with an unbeaten 18-0 pro record.

An undercard featuring Campbell Hatton, Callum Smith and Lawrence Okoli is expected to be followed by a ring walk at around 10 p.m. Saturday.

After landing in the UK, Usyk insists that he is content to keep the fight in the back of his mind.

The man known as the cat said: “At the moment I don’t think of 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, I can think about it then.

“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, it seems he has calmed down.

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