Fury will be helpless: former world champion revealed an important detail of the upcoming Fury-Usyk fight
Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) has every chance of defeating British Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) in a fight for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion. The main problem with the Gypsy King, as the Manchester native is known, is his inability to get out of striking distance.
This opinion was expressed by former world champion in two weight categories Timothy Bradley in an interview with the FightHype YouTube channel, Boxing News 24/7 reports. The American noted that Tyson avoids opponent's attacks in a straight line, thereby allowing opponents to strike the body.
"If you go back and watch his fight with Wilder, you'll see that when Fury steps back, he steps back in a straight line. If he does the same, then Usyk will follow him. He will strive to follow him because Fury is not ready for that. He's not throwing punches, he's just stepping back and trying to get out of range. In this case, we'll see Usyk hitting him on the body, because Tyson is tall and big. Usyk is a little faster on the feet. He has a really good chance," Bradley said.
Earlier, Fury himself announced the date of the fight against Usyk and threatened our boxer with a lawsuit. Before that, Anthony Joshua (26-3, 23 KOs) revealed sensational details of Oleksandr's fight against Tyson. In addition, the Briton gave his forecast for the historic confrontation between the Ukrainian and his compatriot.
In turn, Fury's manager Spencer Brown spoke about the secret conversation between Tyson and Oleksandrr. The Ukrainian himself commented on the fight against the Briton in an original way, calling his opponent an avatar and questioning one of the terms of the deal.
The International Boxing Federation (IBF) has put forward its demand for the Usyk-Fury fight. The World Boxing Organization (WBO) responded to the organization of the fight between Oleksandr and Tyson by naming a contender for the winner's titles. And former world champion Andy Ruiz named the main problem of the British rival of the Ukrainian.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, Oleksandr Usyk called Tyson Fury a "pot-bellied handsome" and said hello to him. The Ukrainian boxer also spoke about the imminent end of his career. Oleksandr's promoter Krasiuk named a condition under which the fight with Fury could be canceled.
