Froch speaks out about Usyk and Fury fight

Former world champion Carl Froch has expressed confidence that the fight between Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) and Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion will not take place on February 17. According to the Briton, his compatriot needs more time to prepare because of the Christmas holidays.

Froch said this on his YouTube channel Froch on Fighting. The former middleweight boxer said that Fury will not train in late December and early January, which means that the promoter will have to postpone his fight against Usyk to March.

"Tyson needs to spend the New Year and Christmas without relaxing, drinking, or overeating. Of course, Fury doesn't need to be engaged in weight cutting, but he still needs to lose a couple of kilograms for optimal fitness. And it won't be easy. He has a wonderful family - a wife and seven children - and he will want to spend time with them. Will he want to train without a break to be ready for February? I'm not sure. I think the fight will be postponed to March. This is the first time this has been said. I'm optimistic about the fight itself, but I doubt it will be in February," Froch said.
