British journalist compared Usyk to the legendary Muhammad Ali and "calmed down" Fury
The owner of the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt, Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs), can mock Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) for his size as much as he wants, but the Ukrainian can be compared to the legendary Muhammad Ali. Usyk is already ready to beat the Gypsy King and become the absolute world heavyweight champion.
This is stated in the article of the British tabloid Daily Mirror. Journalist Martin Domin advised Fury to pay attention to the statistics of the Ukrainian unified champion and compare them with Ali's data. In particular, the Ukrainian and the American have the same height, which is 191 centimeters.
In addition, the boxers' arm span is also the same (198 centimeters), which allows them to keep their opponents at a comfortable distance. They also have about the same weight. Ali became the absolute world champion twice, but in his era, only two belts were at stake, not four, as it will be in the Usyk vs. Fury fight.
As a reminder, on November 16, a press conference to officially announce the match between the British and the Ukrainian was held in London. The UK has already started talking about another postponement of the Usyk-Fury fight. And the Ukrainian's team named the main difficulties Oleksandr faced while preparing for the fight.
Earlier, bookmakers abruptly changed their bets for the Usyk-Fury fight. In turn, Oleksandr spoke about what he would do after defeating Tyson, who recorded a video message to the Ukrainian with a promise to knock him out by the end of the fourth round.
News from the British boxer's training camp was also announced. And the legendary Evander Holyfield explained why Usyk will win the fight against Fury. In turn, the Ukrainian did not disclose his tactical plan for the fight.
The legendary Russian champion Kostya Tszyu gave his forecast for the fight between the Ukrainian and the British. The Gypsy King himself admitted that he is not interested in the title of absolute champion.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, Tyson Fury's father John Fury spoke about the problems of his boxer son before the fight with Oleksandr Usyk. And the WBC announced the contenders for the fight against the winner of the Fury-Usyk confrontation.
