Promoter Frank Warrenqueensberry promotions) believes that the WBC heavyweight champion Briton Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) will defeat the holder of all other division belts Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) in the unification fight. And he will do it ahead of schedule.
“I think Fury will shorten Usyk,”
is divided Warren’s forecast. – As for me, it is too big for a Ukrainian. Otherwise, they are similar. Great boxing brains and all. But I think that Tyson is stronger in everything. However, Usyk is very good. He was a great cruiser and now he’s a very good heavyweight. But if you compare them, then you will see for yourself that Fury is stronger in everything.
Over the weekend, the Briton held an intermediate defense of the title – for the third time he beat fellow countryman Derek Chisora. The problem is that while Fury injured his hand. It seems that the fight will take place a little later than expected – not earlier than April next year.
It is possible that this fight will not happen at all in the foreseeable future: Fury after Chisora: all the most likely rivals.
