Mike Tyson describes Usyk's fate
The legendary American boxer Mike Tyson believes that undefeated Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk has a great future. The super-heavyweight icon spoke enthusiastically about the skills of our compatriot.
Tyson believes that Usyk will "gather everyone" in the division due to his intellectual abilities and difficulty for opponents.
"I think Usyk will beat everyone. Usyk is very smart and understanding, and he's an uncomfortable opponent. I think Usyk is a great opponent for any fighter," boxing-social.com quoted Tyson as saying.
Like Usyk, Mike Tyson was a small heavyweight who achieved greatness in the elite boxing division, so there is no one who understands more to give an adequate assessment of the Ukrainian.
Despite all that he has achieved both as an amateur and a professional, Usyk may face the toughest test of his boxing life in the coming months when he fights Tyson Fury for the absolute championship.
According to media reports, negotiations between the camps of Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk are progressing well, and it is believed that an agreement on the first (in more than twenty years) fight for the absolute world heavyweight title is not far off.
Although promoter Frank Warren has not ruled out a Wembley Stadium meeting entirely, he admitted in a recent interview that the historic fight is likely to take place where it will bring in the most profit. In all likelihood, this means a return to the Middle East.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, where Usyk defeated Anthony Joshua for the second time last summer, is considered the most likely venue for a new grand show.
