He recently revealed this during an interview with the media, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, even if he still sees AJ winning because he is bigger and way more aggressive, his opponent is really focused on being a two-weight world champion.
Nelson added that he has always been a massive fan of Anthony Joshua and he has never hidden that fact.
His words, ‘I’ve always been a massive fan of Anthony Joshua, it’s never been hidden,”
‘I’m a fan of Oleksandr Usyk because at cruiserweight I said, This guy is the heir apparent. I could see him stepping up to heavyweight and making a massive impression like Evander Holyfield back in the day.”
“[But he’s a] different style of fighter. But then I saw his introduction to the heavyweight division and I was underwhelmed.”
“And he’s a good fighter, excellent pedigree.”
“Better pedigree than Anthony Joshua as an amateur at least. I think Anthony Joshua will be far too big, far too strong, far too sharp and far too aggressive.”
“And Usyk’s got to depend on his unorthodox style to try and befuddle Anthony Joshua to get through that fight.”
“It’s not an easy fight. So if anybody tries to say this is a done deal, this is not a done deal. This is a tough fight for Anthony Joshua.”
“So Anthony Joshua needs to make sure he has his white about him, does not underestimate this guy just because he’s a small opponent.”
“But he needs to stamp his authority as a big strong, fast, athletic heavyweight champion. In doing that, I expect him to get the win. But it’s going to be a rough ride.”
