Joshua’s Explosive Skills: Oleksandr Osyk Calls Out to Martin Bakole for Rescue

As the build-up to the September 25 Fist Fest between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk draws near, both boxers are in the tick of putting finishing touches to their training sessions. Apparently desperate to turn around pundits’ verdict, which seem to favour Joshua, Usyk hired the services of Congolese heavyweight, Martin Bakole. The latter is needed in Usyk’s camp to help prepare the Ukrainian in training by imitating Joshua’s boxing skills, described as lighting-quick and explosive.
Thus far, Usyk is said to be very impressed with what Bakole has brought to the camp of the former undisputed cruiserweight king. He is said to have “sharpened the Ukrainian’s supreme skills in sparring.”
“One hundred per cent it’s a wise move by Usyk’s people to use Martin Bakole as a sparring partner,” trainer Billy Nelson said.
Though Bakole is said to know Joshua well, having gone through many rounds of sparring with the WBA, IBF and WBO champion, he however, could not turn down a call from the Ukrainian to help in the last lap of preparations for the September Feast of Fists during which Joshua’s belts will be on the table for Usyk’s picking.
“I was approached by Team Usyk at the beginning of August or late July,” Bakole’s trainer Billy Nelson told Sky Sports.
Martin has been there for a week and a half and he’s got a further two and half weeks. Then he comes to Dubai on September 4 for his fight. He’s got an eight-round contest in Dubai on September 18.
Usyk’s team have been super-impressed with Martin out there. They’ve actually asked him to stay on a further week, including the four that he’s doing. That’s not possible due to the fight that he’s got here.”
Nelson adds that though Bakole is full of encomiums for the Ukrainian, he however, stopped short of making any comparison between him and Joshua.
“Martin is very complimentary about Usyk. He says he’s very skilful. He’s not made any comparisons between the two.
It’s just unfortunate that Usyk is a southpaw, or we could have been helping Anthony Joshua. It’s just one of those things. But when top-quality sparring comes up, Martin is not in a position to refuse it, because he’s been inactive and he needs the sparring for his upcoming fight,” Nelson adds.

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the simplest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked
    while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined
    out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
