new member International Boxing Hall of Fame Briton Carl Froch is confident in his compatriot. He believes that WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) will beat Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs), the holder of the remaining division belts, in unification.
“Listen, this is a great fight, –
speaks Froch. – In short and to the point, I bet on Fury. I think that he is too big for Usyk. I suppose the Ukrainian will act prudently and smartly at first, but at some point Fury will get closer to him, put a little pressure on him, forget, run over and begin to more confidently deliver blows to the target. He’ll get a couple of uppercuts. Exactly the same ones that he regaled Dillian Whyte. And I think this is where the fight ends. I’m telling you, he’s too big for Usyk. My prediction is Fury will win by knockout.”
All this is good. But first, you still need to wait for the official announcement of the fight. At this moment, the boxing teams are trying to close the deal – they are arguing about the fair distribution of the prize fund, because Fury’s side does not plan to give half to the Ukrainian. The fight is tentatively scheduled for April 29 at Wembley Stadium (London, England).
Previously, the fighters planned to fight in Saudi Arabia, but something went wrong. Why didn’t it work? Chisora has the answer. And a representative of the local investors said that “everything just slowed down.” There is even a version that the Usyk-Fury fight was abandoned in Saudi Arabia because of Joshua.
