Expressing his thoughts before the first bell, Whyte told iFL TV, “I don’t think this fight is as dangerous as everyone claims.

“This fight is as dangerous as Joshua makes it.

“If Joshua presses him, I think he’ll knock him out.

“If he goes to points, Usyk won’t get a points decision because I think he will take a lot of damage.”

However, Whyte then added, “But also, Joshua can be mentally fragile at times, so Usyk can get into his head.

“Usyk does the same sort of thing Andy Ruiz did – smiling, taking pictures with his belts on.

“And Joshua has been a bit absent in my opinion. This week it’s been a bit absent and a bit odd, a bit outdated.

“He was just a little weird, I don’t know. Signs similar to when he fought Ruiz.

“But the difference was that Ruiz had a lot of weight and a lot of power behind his punches. Usyk does not.

“I just think it’s a win for Joshua to be honest. I actually pick him to take Usyk out in the first six / seven rounds, if he presses him and doesn’t try to get into a boxing match with him.
