Former world champion and current boxing columnist / commentator Tony Bellew believes that Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) is the only heavyweight in the world who can beat Briton Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs). Their fight is tentatively scheduled for April 29 at Wembley Stadium (London, England). At stake is the title of absolute heavyweight champion.
“I don’t think anyone really wants to fight Usyk,”
speaks Bellew, who experienced in his own skin all the delights of being in Riga with a boxer from Ukraine. – I think that in the confrontation with the current Fury, everything is in the hands of Alexander. If anyone can beat Tyson, then only Usyk. Why he? Because he is very good at what he does in the ring. This is the only boxer in the world who is able to make Fury miss all 12 rounds and constantly punish for mistakes.
Bellew still considers his compatriot “the first heavyweight number. At least before the fight. He cannot be underestimated. So let’s see how the fight goes. I think it will be very interesting.”
The problem is that this fight has not yet been officially announced. The parties continue negotiations, still can not share the prize fund. Usyk’s team demands half the money, Fury is categorically against it.
