And he captioned the post: “This is how Anthony Joshua needs to attack Oleksandr Usyk’s body.
“I know the blown-up middleweight can’t take body shots.”
Usyk – who started his amateur career at middleweight – was once dropped by Artur Beterbiev after a body shot in the unpaid ranks.
And Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has urged the former two-time champion to adopt similar tactics on Saturday night.
Hearn told EsNews: “You got to hit him hard to the body, to the arms, to the shoulders, to the neck. You’ve got to damage him.
“But he’s a very tough challenge. The key to this fight is those first six rounds.”
Joshua, 32, was beaten over 12 rounds by Usyk, 35, last September but Hearn wants the rematch in Jeddah wrapped up before the final bell.
He said: “I don’t want it to go to points. I don’t like this fight going to points for Anthony Joshua.
“He can win the fight on points but I want him to knock Oleksandr Usyk spark out because I don’t want any mucking around.
“I want a nice, clean stoppage where we can all dive in the ring, celebrate and go home with all the belts and that’s what we want.”
Fury, 34, is linked with a comeback to fight the winner between Usyk and Joshua.
