"He'll never lose": former world champion dissuades Usyk from fighting Fury
Famous American boxer Shannon Briggs expressed confidence that Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) will defeat Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs). The former lineal world champion actually called on the Ukrainian to refuse to fight an opponent who is much bigger than him.
Briggs said this in an interview with the Fight Hype YouTube channel, Boxing Social reports. According to the former rival of the legendary Vitali Klitschko, Tyson is impossible to beat because he is not only physically bigger, but also has high skill and an awkward style.
"You shouldn't go against Fury, he never loses. You can't go against such a big man who can move like that. He's a big man, look at his legs, he's got a funny build, he's got the legs of a normal tall boxer, but he's got the body of a fat person who doesn't train, and that helps him. He has no muscles, but muscles don't box. He has such agility, he can move, he can move his head. Size doesn't always matter, but in this case we're dealing with a big guy, a big man who can move and box like that. He's dangerous," Briggs said.
Earlier, Fury made an arrogant statement about the fight with Usyk. The Ukrainian himself answered the question of how he intends to beat Tyson in an ironic style. And Oleksandr's ex-trainer Serhiy Vatamaniuk urged him to take the Briton seriously.
The media have found out that the fight will take place before the New Year or in January. Recently, the legendary Mike Tyson made his prediction for the superfight of the year. The International Boxing Federation (IBF) has put forward its demand for Usyk and Fury to fight.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, the World Boxing Organization (WBO) reacted to the organization of the fight between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury by naming a contender for the winner's title. And former world champion Andy Ruiz named the main problem of the Ukrainian's British rival.
