ANTHONY JOSHUA has been accused of being too ‘chinny’ to beat Oleksandr Usyk, with the pair going for a rematch on ‘April 4’.

Joshua was beaten in 12 rounds and lost the WBA, IBF and WBO belts to Usyk in September.

But the provocative Briton has already invoked his right to immediate revenge.

That negates any chance of stepping down to allow Usyk to unite against WBC champion Tyson Fury, 33, who recently beat Deontay Wilder, 35.

US Fury promoter Bob Arum criticized Eddie Hearn and AJ for refusing to sit down and canceled their chances of winning the rematch.

Arum told FightHub, “Eddie thought Joshua wouldn’t be ready to step aside and would like to make the rematch.

“Which is kind of stupid on his part, because there is no way he’ll be able to beat Usyk in his next fight, no matter what new strategy he deploys.

“Yeah, too talented, and he’s a bit of a chinny, Joshua is.”

“The only way to beat Usyk is to corner him and corner him with your heavy weight and put him under pressure.

“But then he can unload on you. Now a Tyson Fury can absorb that, as we all know, but Anthony Joshua has a suspicious chin. “

Fury is now set to face the winner between Dillian Whyte, 33, and Otto Wallin, 30, who fight at the end of the month.

Arum is hoping he can then step into an undisputed title maker by October as he predicted AJ’s return date.

He said: “Joshua and Usyk, I think they’re going to wait until April 4th.

“I think Fury will fight again in March or April. Then we can look to the September or October game for unification. “

“He shouldn’t go all the way,” says Frank Warren as he urges Anthony Joshua to dodge Usyk
