"Do you know why?" Fury's father warned Tyson about the danger of fighting Usyk
The owner of the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt, Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs), is to make changes to his fighting style in his fight against Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs), which is scheduled to take place on January 17. The Gypsy King, as the Briton is called, has no reason to simply put pressure on the Ukrainian.
This opinion was expressed by Tyson's father John Fury in an interview with Boxing Social. In his opinion, his son should not box Usyk in the same way as he did in the fights with Deontay Wilder (43-3-1, 42 KOs) and Francis Ngannou (0-1, 0 KOs), where the Briton did not take his defense particularly seriously.
"Tyson needs a different style in his fight against Usyk. Do you know why? Because he has high speed, and it's impossible to just go straight ahead and try to deliver a punch. Such boxers see everything perfectly and avoid such danger. Usyk is a very good boxer. He moves perfectly. His brain works, he has good footwork. So, the style that fits the fights with Wilder and Ngannou will not work for Usyk," said Fury Sr.
