"Fury will corner him and win": former world champion predicted the results of the Usyk-Fury fight
Former world heavyweight champion Frank Bruno expressed confidence that his compatriot Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) will defeat Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) in a fight for all the belts of the division. The London native explained this by saying that the Gypsy King is superior to the Ukrainian physically and has been fighting in the heaviest weight class for his entire professional career.
Bruno said this in an interview with the OUTBX YouTube channel, Boxing Social reports. The former boxer hinted that he predicts an early end to the fight between Usyk and Fury, but at the same time praised the skills of the Ukrainian unified world champion.
"Usyk is a very good fighter and a more experienced fighter than many people think. He is challenging no matter how you look at it. He's a very good fighter, he knows how to behave in the ring. But a good heavyweight who knows what he's doing will corner him, jab him a few times and defeat him. But you have to respect Usyk, don't get me wrong. Usyk is a very good boxer," Bruno said.
Earlier, Usyk's former trainer Serhiy Vatamaniuk said to take Fury seriously. He signed an agreement with the Ukrainian on September 29. Promoter Bob Arum named a prerequisite for the fight. The media found out that the fight would take place before the New Year or in January.
Former world middleweight champion Carl Froch shared what will happen in the fight between Usyk and "Fat Fury." The Ukrainian also reacted to the announcement of the fight for the first time. It also became known that the fight between Oleksandr and Tyson is threatened by the court.
Our champion's former rival Mairis Briedis also spoke about the fight. Former champion from Russia Dmitry Kudryashov pointed out what Usyk will do in the confrontation. The legendary Mike Tyson gave his prediction of the fight between the Ukrainian and the British.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, the International Boxing Federation (IBF) has put forward its demand for fights between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury. In turn, the British fighter's father John named a boxer who could knock out the Ukrainian in a minute.
