On April 29, in Saudi Arabia (or in Britain), the first absolute world champion in heavyweight history will be determined – the current holders of all division belts Ukrainian Alexander Usik (20-0, 13 KOs) and Briton Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) will fight ).
Multiple contender for the championship belt American-Mexican boxing veteran Chris Arreola (38-7-1, 33 KOs)
decided with the favorite: “There is one thing that cannot be learned. It is impossible to learn to become taller and handier. And so … It will be a super-duper cool fight. But I have to bet on Fury. Simply because he is so big and so technical for a man of his size. Despite his size, he fights like a middleweight. So I’m betting on Fury.”
Nevertheless, Arreola is also delighted with Usyk: “Let’s give the man his due. He is one of the best in the history of amateur boxing. He has more than 300 amateur fights behind him. He became the winner in all the most important tournaments in which he participated – he was the first in the European Championship, the World Championship and the Olympic Games.
Negotiations on this event dragged on a bit. The Briton does not hide the fact that he does not like it: “The big test is not Usyk, but the organization of the battle.” A little earlier, the promoter of the show, Frank Warren, announced the final date of the fight.
