David Haye: “I would definitely knock out Usyk!”


Former world heavyweight champion (over 90.7 kg), as well as ex-unified heavyweight champion (up to 90.7 kg) Briton David Haye in
interview for local media, he answered a question about his fantasy fight against the unified IBF / WBO / WBA champion from Ukraine Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs).

David compared Usyk’s fight against British ex-challenger Derek Chisora ​​(33-12, 23 KOs) with his own fight against him. In addition, Haye recalled his fight and Usyk’s fight against ex-champion from Britain Tony Bellew, and also expressed confidence that he would have knocked out the Ukrainian.

— We know that boxing fans love fantasy fights. If you shared the ring with Oleksandr Usyk in cruiserweight, are you sure you would beat him? If so, how?

– At my peak, I fought with the likes of Maccarinelli or Mormeck, speed and timing. And I’ve always liked lefties too. My right one reached the target. In Usyk’s fight with Tony Bellew, Tony controlled the fight while he was in it. If he had been younger, if he had been fresher, he could have done a much better fight. If I put myself in such a fight with Usyk… Being at my peak, I would beat Tony, and I would definitely knock out Usyk!

Of course Usyk is a completely different beast now. He’s in the heavyweights now. He put on some weight, he was in amazing fights. His fight against Derek Chisora ​​was very close. He scraped together a majority decision win. When I fought Derek, I knocked him out in five rounds. So we have only one joint opponent. And Tony Bellew. He knocked out Tony Bellew and Tony Bellew knocked me out twice.

I would be sure before the fight. It would be difficult, heavy, but I would find a way to get to it. I wouldn’t let some of the things he does to some of those big heavyweights happen. What he did against Anthony Joshua, he couldn’t do against me. I would be faster than him. Here is my answer.

Fury recently claimed that Chisora ​​beat Usyk. Derek reacted strangely to this – video.
