World Boxing Council (WBC) belt holder Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) will defeat Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) and become the absolute world heavyweight champion. The Gypsy King, as the Manchester native is called, will write his name in the history of sports.

Fury himself expressed his confidence in this in an interview with Boxing Scene. The British boxer noted that he has no fear of the Ukrainian champion, praising his level. According to Tyson, Usik is too small to confront him, which will affect the result.

He has a fight on February 17, and he's going to lose. I will break him, that's for sure," Fury said.
