Anthony Joshua fans left surprised by body transformation ahead of Usyk fight

Heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua has left fans marvelling at his body transformation ahead of his upcoming bout with Ukrainian fighter Oleksandr Usyk.

Billed as 'The perfect Storm' AJ will put all four of his belts on the line when he faces undefeated Usyk at the end of this month.

In preparation for the fight, the Watford warrior appears to be in slimmer shape than ever.

The 31-year-old has shared pictures of his pre-fight training camp on Instagram and Twitter with the caption: "Strategic warfare."

And the images have shocked many of his fans who have been left surprised with his body transformation.

Replying to Joshua's snaps, many supporters have made comments about a change of tact from the British heavyweight champion for the upcoming bout:

"Looks lean. Coming in for speed then?!" commented one fan.

"Yo AJ looks like he has lost a lot of mass, looking lean," replied another

While one supporter commented AJ's new approach may be his downfall:" Looks lean AJ, think he'll get to Usyk but wouldn't be surprised if Usyk boxed his head off. Intriguing fight."

Joshua versus Usyk will take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on September 25.
