Hatton: “If anyone has a chance to beat Fury, it’s Usyk”


One of the most popular British champions, Ricky Hatton, does not hide the fact that he considers compatriot Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) to be the best current heavyweight in the world.

With a high degree of probability, in the first half of next year, the first absolute heavyweight champion in the era of four belts will be determined – the owners of all Fury division titles and Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) will meet in a face-to-face fight.

believesthat Tyson will not be easy: “I don’t see who could get past Fury. Honestly, as for me, no one can beat him. But it is still worth remembering that Usyk is an Olympic champion, an absolute in cruiserweight and a unified heavyweight champion. So if someone has a chance to beat Tyson, then perhaps Usyk.

Despite this, Hatton believes that “Fury is stronger than the Ukrainian in all components. He’s taller, he’s bigger, he’s heavier, he’s stronger. He can change stances during the fight, can box close and from a long distance. For this reason, it is illogical to bet against him.”

The other day, Fury gathered Klitschko, Joshua, Wilder, Haye and White at the Christmas tree – a picture for Christmas. And the Olympic medalist from Britain, Joe Joyce, explained why he wants Usyk to lose in a fight with Fury.
