Light heavyweight fighter from Britain, younger brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) Tommy Fury (8-0, 4 KOs)
interview for the American media, he expressed his forecast for the upcoming Tyson fight for the title of absolute heavyweight champion against the unified IBF / WBO / WBA champion from Ukraine Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs).
Tommy has no doubts about the victory of his brother in the main fight in his career, and the fighter believes that Tyson will cope with the Ukrainian during the first half of the fight. Recall that Tommy Fury himself will hold the next fight on February 26 in Saudi Arabia against social media star Jake Paul (6-0, 4 KOs).
– Let’s hope that we will see the fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk. Give me your prediction. You know Tyson very well, how do you see this fight going?
– I see Tyson knocking out Usyk very quickly. I can see how it will play out within the first half of the fight. Exclusively and simply because Usyk is small. Of course, for an ordinary person, he is a big guy, but when you are fighting a 2-meter monster that can move from side to side, forward and backward, change stances, hit hard, take a hit – this is very, very difficult to beat. I think this man is invincible. Usyk is a great champion, don’t get me wrong, but there is a difference here.
Usyk is an excellent fighter, don’t get me wrong. But Tyson is an elite fighter. As Floyd Mayweather showed in his career. He fought great fighters, but when you’re of the elite caliber, you make great fighters look simple. This is exactly what will happen. You will see how Oleksandr Usyk will look like a simple fighter against Tyson. He will look like a light heavyweight against Goliath. He will simply be dragged into deep waters and, I’m afraid, drowned.
– Are you sure that the fight will take place as planned?
– Yes, whenever it is planned, I am sure that it will take place. Because both fighters don’t really have other fights. This is the biggest fight for both of them. Therefore, I am 100% sure that it will take place. The only question here is when and where.
Meanwhile, Eddie Hearn stated that Joshua would replace Usyk and fight Fury.
