“Referee Usyk won’t help.” Anderson on Fury and the fight for the heavyweight absolute


The main prospect of the heavyweight division (over 90.7 kg) of the Top Rank Promotions promotion company, American Jared Anderson (12-0, 12 KOs) had a conversation with a journalist from a local news portal.

interview Jared spoke about the recent performance of British WBC champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) against compatriot Derek Chisora ​​(33-13, 23 KOs). The conversation also touched upon Fury’s upcoming fight for the title of absolute heavyweight champion against Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs), who holds three titles.

– Chisora ​​is a fighter. He doesn’t give up. I understand if he is happy with his performance. But Fury, even if he won early, some people consider him flat-footed. Is this kind of expected for a 30+ fighter doing an intermediate fight, or is it something else?

– Yes and no. Personally, I don’t like it. It seems to me that no matter who you are, you should always show the best. Speaking of Usyk… How can you be flat-footed? It’s not one of those things you can do with these kind of fighters. I think it’s fraught for this fight. So let’s hope, like you said, it was an interim fight and he’ll get back on track and be ready early next year. Let’s hope that is the case. But I didn’t watch the fight. I don’t know if he was flatfooted. Well, since you say, I believe. Let’s hope he fixes it.

“Not flat-footed, but he was kind of boring by his standards. Didn’t shoot 100%. Even though he won every round… You would understand if you saw it. What can you say about his words to Usyk?

– From what I saw, Usyk barely understood him, to be honest. But as you could see from his face, he is a fighter, he is a beast inside. I think it will be a great fight. I’m sure she will follow Tyson’s path. Just from my sparring sessions with him, I have confidence in him. I think he will wear it out. The turning point in the fight will occur in the region of 7-8 rounds. And the turning point will be in favor of Tyson. I am sure that there will be a great fight, good and necessary for boxing. We need an absolute champion. He was gone for a very long time. It would be great for both fighters’ careers. Let’s hope it happens.

“I was talking to Steve Cunningham the other day, the guy who got up from the cruisers and dropped Fury. And he chose Usyk as the winner. His findings were very interesting. He said he thinks Usyk’s management team will choose a referee who will stop Fury from doing some of the things we saw in the third fight against Wilder and some other fights. He said that if Fury couldn’t do some rough stuff, use his size and clinch, Usyk would beat him. Any thoughts on this and this kind of technical aspect?

“Some things you just can’t avoid. It’s a very “physical” sport. It’s one of the things you can’t avoid. If you can’t do it yourself, then that’s your misfortune. The referee cannot spare you all these things. And Tyson is a veteran. Even if he can’t bring it up to the same level as with Wilder and his ilk, he’ll still be able to do enough to tip the scales in his favor in the later rounds. In relation to what he said about the referee, it’s not such a serious thing to do. It will just cause dissatisfaction. If Tyson goes out there and does it… We’re talking about a heavyweight champion who’s been reigning for years. If you think the referee will just stop it or deduct a point in the first 5 rounds, then you are insane. He will let him do certain things that Tyson wants, just to make the fight interesting, so that the fans will like it. Otherwise, the referee will be fucked up before he removes the ball.

Meanwhile, Fury invited the star ex-football player to sparring to help prepare for Usyk.
