Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua 2: Ukrainian's insane reflexes in four coin trick

In a recent clip posted to Sky Sports Boxing’s Twitter account, Oleksandr Usyk has shown that his ridiculously fast hand speed can help other talents he possesses outside of the ring.

With the Ukrainian set do battle with Anthony Joshua again in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia this Saturday night, Usyk will look to remain atop the mountain as the heavyweight king.

Following his triumphant unanimous decision win over AJ last year at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, ‘The Cat’ has been hard at work in fight camp and in training in general.

Usyk showed how to truly outclass and outbox an opponent that night in September last year, as he toyed with the former champion turned challenger.

Clearly the Ukrainian possesses a great deal of skill, but it can be said that he may or may not have the same knockout power as Joshua as he failed to knock him out in the final round.

However, Usyk has bulked up in muscle mass and size this time around so there is a chance that should there be a similar situation to latter stages of the first fight, the 35-year-old could finish the Brit off this time.

In the opposite camp, AJ has a new coaching team and has been studying the champion as he claimed to know all his ‘tricks’ so that he can beat Usyk come the rematch this weekend.

It will be intriguing to see what game plan Joshua will come into the fight with, after AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn recently said his tactics in the first fight ‘baffled’ him.

Perhaps he will look to counter Usyk’s patient, yet speedy approach?

Speaking of speed and, in this particular case, we want to turn your attention to this clip of Usyk demonstrating his talent does come in handy outside of the ring.

In the video which was shared by Sky Sports Boxing, Usyk can be seen balancing four silver coins on top of his hand and forearm area.

What he does next is truly mesmerising, as he flicks the coins into the air at a reasonable height and then proceeds to grab the coins one by one at tremendous speed within a second or two.

This hand speed will no doubt be on display in the rematch with Joshua at the Jeddah Superdome this weekend.
