British coach Adam Booth, best known for his collaboration with cruiserweight and heavyweight conqueror David Haye, shared his opinion about the fight for the title of absolute heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) from Ukraine and Tyson Fury (33-0-1 , 24 KOs) from the UK.
puts on a compatriot: “Due to what, Usyk creates problems for the big guys? Due to its maneuverability and rhythm. But the thing is, Fury is not just a 206-centimeter giant with the longest arms in the division. He is also very mobile. That’s why I think it’s my favourite.”
Booth says: “Understand, I really like Usyk. I love watching his fights. But it’s not in vain that they say that divisions in boxing exist for a reason. And heavyweight is a completely different story. And another separate story is Fury in heavyweight. Before his appearance, it seemed that such huge men simply were not able to move so well. I think that it is for this reason that Usyk will find it very difficult. He will have to close the distance. And that will be difficult to do.”
Yesterday, the promoter of the favorite said that the Usyk-Fury fight would take place a little later, that is, not on March 4. Do you think Tyson will crush Alexander with his size and weight? Wilder’s coach isn’t sure.
