Fury vs Usyk. The legendary McGuigan has decided on a favorite


Member International Boxing Hall of Fame (IBHOF) and Order of the British Empire the legendary Barry McGuigan is not sure that the WBC heavyweight champion Briton Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) is the favorite in the confrontation with the holder of all other heavyweight belts Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs).

With a high degree of probability, at the beginning of next year, they will determine the first undisputed heavyweight world champion in the era of four belts.

confessedthat “It is not easy to make a choice. Previously, I was confident in the victory of Fury. He thought that he was too strong and heavy for Usyk. That he would constantly lean on him, wear him down and run over him in the second half of the fight. But you know what? Lately, I’m not so sure. As for me, this is a much more difficult fight than I thought before. And anyone can win. A really tough fight for both.”

McGuigan still had to choose a favorite: “I think Fury is still the favorite. (Due to Russia’s criminal invasion of Ukraine) the battle cannot take place on the territory of Usyk. This means that they will box in the UK or in the UAE. And if so, then Fury has a slightly better chance. But here absolutely nothing is clear. Tough fight to predict.”

Have you already seen the video of how Fury started, and the audience sang “Usyk is a bum!”? In the meantime, Eddie Hearn’s father got very confused himself and confused all of us: “Obviously, Fury is No. 1 in the world. And Usyk is No. 1 in the world.” If the fight with Usyk does not take place? No problem! Tyson Fury named 3 names.
