Share this article Share 'Usyk is already in AJ's head,' Krassyuk told Sky Sports. 'Their fight will happen anyway, this is just a matter of time. There is no difference how big Usyk's win is - AJ knows that this guy is a real threat for him.' Joshua is preparing to fight Kubrat Pulev on December 12 and will then have plenty of options in terms of opponents. He has agreed in principle to a huge two-fight deal to fight Tyson Fury next year and could accept that fight not being to unify the belts.
. Krassyuk believes his man will make light work of Chisora this weekend unless Chisora has the ability to be evasive for all 12 rounds. 'The KO does not depend much on Usyk but on Chisora', he said.'If Derek is in good shape and condition, if he will be ready to be moving for the whole distance, if his stamina will be sufficient to stay focused without losing concentration, then a KO is not likely to happen. Chisora and Usyk lock horns on October 31 and Alexander Krassyuk hopes he is in shape 'But once Derek decides to [take a risk] he will be immediately floored.'I expect that Usyk's plan will be very similar to his previous bouts. He will start slow using his jab to learn his opponent's intentions. 'In two or three rounds Usyk will add some artillery and will start to gradually destroy Chisora.'
