ANTHONY JOSHUA will need a slice of ‘luck’ if he’s to exact revenge on Oleksandr Usyk later this year.

The Watford warrior will bid to reclaim the unified heavyweight titles from the undefeated Ukrainian in a potentially do-or-die rematch this spring.

And the retired David Price believes Joshua will need a huge slice of ‘luck’ to win their rematch

AJ was taught a boxing lesson by Usyk in their Tottenham tussle last September, so much so that retired heavyweight David Price reckons the slick southpaw will still have the beating of the Brit.

He told talkSPORT: “I just think Usyk has got his number.

“Every fighter has an opponent where that style of fighting and that man in particular.

“You’re just going to have to be really lucky to win the fight.”

Smooth operator Usyk has yet to make a costly mistake 19-fight career and Price can’t see one happening in his first defence of the unified titles.

He continued: “You can be lucky, but luck also creates itself with mistakes that are made by the opponent.

“I do not think Usyk is someone that will make the mistake where he will put himself in a position to be knocked out by an Anthony Joshua punch.”

SunSport understands Joshua and Usyk’s second dance is tentatively slated for late March or early April.

An official announcement is expected to be made in the coming weeks.

Joshua, 32, is hellbent on exacting revenge on his conqueror, telling iFL TV late last year: “I have one thing in my mind, that’s war, that’s murder, that’s war, let’s go out there and hurt the guy.

“Take his soul to the point where he wants to give up.

“That’s what boxing’s about, I’ve learned that.

“You hit people constantly, keep on applying a certain amount of pressure, before they know it they’ll realise you aren’t going anywhere, you’re here to stay.

“With the game plan, that’s all I have in my mind at the minute, that one track, stay on course, take this guy to places he doesn’t want to go.”
