Usyk vs Joshua 2 Betting Analysis
The first fight between these two men lasted for a considerable amount of time. As we approach one of the most significant heavyweight title rematches of all time, it has been close to a year since the first fight, and a lot has changed in our perception of the situation in that time.
Some people believe that the man who held the title of undisputed cruiserweight world champion in the past will be able to stop AJ this time.
Many people believe that a more committed and comfortable pursuit to finish the fight will be made by both fighters in the follow-up bout because of the way that both will be approaching it in comparison to how they approached the first fight.
My prediction is that there will be a stoppage in this one, and I believe it would be smart to place a prop bet on the outcome of the fight not going the full distance.
Pick: No (-140)

Joshua Odds Favor Stoppage
It is slightly more likely that Usyk will win based on the scorecards of the judges than it is that he will win through a stoppage of some kind; the odds for these outcomes are +170 and +180, respectively.
The oddsmakers see a clear path to victory for Joshua, as an AJ victory via knockout or technical knockout is priced at +250, while a Joshua victory via decision is priced at +700. There are some highly esteemed members of the community of sweet science who hold the opinion that Joshua possesses a power advantage and has the potential to make effective use of that advantage in the rematch provided he is strategic about it.
In my opinion, the former champion will have a successful comeback in the rematch (just like what he did across his pair of fights with Andy Ruiz). The towering British heavyweight faces an extremely difficult test in the form of Usyk, who has never been defeated in his professional career; however, I believe that AJ will put the first ever blemish on that record this coming weekend.
My prediction is that Anthony Joshua will successfully defend his unified heavyweight world title, and he will do so by knocking out his opponent.
Choose Anthony Joshua to win by knockout, technical knockout, or decision (+250)

When Does Usyk vs Joshua 2 End?
Oddsmakers see Joshua winning either round five or round six as giving him the best chance to take the fight, and both of these rounds are considered to be among his best chances. As opposed to the measured and calculated boxing game he played in the first fight, I believe Joshua’s strategy for this fight will be to really put his foot on the gas and look for that knockout victory.
It is impossible to outbox someone like Usyk, who has the advantage in both fight IQ and speed. Joshua must make use of his physical abilities and be willing to take some risks in order to make this situation more chaotic.
Even though both boxers have a lot to prove in this rematch in their own unique ways, I still see Joshua tying up the series and finishing it off at the halfway point of the much-hyped competition. This prediction is based on my prediction that Joshua will win.
Choose the Joshua Round Six (+2200) option.
