Cunningham praised the fight between Usyk and Fury

Former world champion Steve Cunningham expressed confidence that Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) has at least two trump cards in his hand in the fight with Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs). The American, who was one of the first to knock out the Gypsy King, praised the skills of the Ukrainian and his team.

Cunningham said this in an interview with the iFL TV YouTube channel, according to The Sun tabloid. The former boxer expressed confidence that Usyk will be a very uncomfortable opponent for Fury because of his style, and in addition, the Ukrainian's manager Aegis Klimas has a huge influence in boxing.

"I think Usyk can beat Fury for two specific reasons. Firstly, it's Usyk's skills, he's second to none. He has amazing movements. He thinks differently, looks from a different angle. He shows a high level of boxing. He will be able to hit Fury. The second reason is his team, his management. His manager is Aegis Klimas. He is an influential force in Europe and around the world. Aegis has a very fundamental career in promoting fighters and protecting them," Cunningham said.

The fight between Alexander and Tyson was originally scheduled for February 17, but the Gypsy King suffered a cut during sparring two weeks before the show. The Manchester native apologized for his injury, and a video of the incident was posted online.

The Briton also made a statement about the end of his career. The main reasons why Fury will not be able to refuse to enter the ring against the Ukrainian again were named.

When asked about the fake nature of the injury, Usyk criticized the Gypsy King. In addition, the fans reacted angrily to the situation.

The incident was also commented on by Croatian boxer Agron Smakic (20-2, 18 KOs), who dealt Fury the ill-fated blow. But ex-champion Carl Froch called the British fighter's injury suspicious.
