ANTHONY JOSHUA appears to be prioritising speed over size as he prepares to face heavyweight rival Oleksandr Usyk.

The WBA, IBF and WBO king stunned fans with his trimmed down physique as he shared new training pictures online.

The Brit is finalising his preparations to take on Ukraine’s Usyk at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on September 25.

And while the eyes of Joshua fans may be trained on the distant hope of a blockbuster all-British clash with Tyson Fury, they certainly had their say on the Watford warrior’s new look.

User ‘milladkeshtiar’ said “Yo AJ looks like he has lost a lot of mass, looking lean” while fan ‘lardgud’ wrote “Looking lean bro!”

Fans noted AJ’s powerful leg muscles, with ‘jerome_fandango’ writing “Not been dodging leg day then”.

And user ‘deeejunez’ added: “Looking forward to seeing what AJ hits the scales at weigh ins, looking crisp!”

Fury promoter Frank Warren claimed AJ will lose unless he can knock out his 34-year-old opponent but fans of the former Olympic champion think otherwise.

User ‘udingiswayo’ wrote: “Usyk has never faced something like this, he’ll crumble in the hands in AJ.”

‘Adamz_gold’ added: “Go harder champ… you’re already a winner… you’re gonna knock Usyk in TKO in the round of six.”

User ‘saa.3047’ thought AJ would go one better, writing: Whao… Well done Champ… Usyk will not go past round 5… I don’t think he can take that power punches from AJ beyond round 5.”
