Can Usyk beat Wilder? Tyson Fury’s opinion


WBC heavyweight champion Briton Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) believes that the previous holder of this belt, American puncher Deontay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs), would have prematurely finished the current division leader Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk in a head-to-head fight ( 20-0, 13 KOs), who holds WBA Super, IBF and WBO belts.

“I think in the starting 3-4 rounds, Usyk would be very uncomfortable for Wilder,”
Fury argues. – But you yourself saw that Usyk gradually slows down during the fight. This was evident in the fight with Anthony Joshua. It was then that he managed to hit Usyk with his best blows and even shake him. Realize that Wilder only needs one hit. And he would have done it somewhere in the 5th round. Even if Usyk had managed to outplay Wilder before the 10th round, in the 12th everything would have ended for him with an early defeat.

“It doesn’t matter what you all think about Usyk. It doesn’t matter what he thinks of himself. Even if he considers himself the most elusive boxer of all time, he cannot beat Wilder. One hit from Deontay and that’s it, good night, kids! Wilder will beat everyone in the division except me. Even though he is a piece of shit, he is the second best heavyweight in the world!” Fury says.

Previously, Wilder was asked about the fight with Ruiz. He suddenly spoke of death. And the puncher is ready to replace Fury and fight Usyk: “You know where to find me.”
