The 32-year-old was criticised for his gameplan that night, as he looked to outbox and outmanoeuvre his opponent. Now the Watford-born boxer intends to be more aggressive and will look to knock Uysk out when they step in the ring once again.

Speaking at the Oxford Union to The Sun, AJ, 32, revealed: “The fight with Usyk, in my mind, was going for 12 rounds. That was my game plan because I thought I could compete with him as a boxer.

“And I think he won two more rounds than I did. That’s how he became champion. So the goal now is to go back to basics and go for the knockout.”
