"I don't think Fury can win the rematch. Usyk has learned that he can hurt Fury. The little man now knows he can hurt the big man. Usyk is the favorite for the rematch. Yes, Tyson Fury is a very smart guy and good at making adjustments, but Usyk, in my humble opinion, will get past him again," Jones Jr. said.
