Hrgovic evaluates Usyk and Fury fight

Croatian heavyweight Filip Hrgovic (17-0, 14 KOs) has named Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) as the favorite in a fight with Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) for the world heavyweight title. The 31-year-old Zagreb native noted that the Ukrainian has a slight advantage over his opponent due to his skills.

Hrgovic, who scored a spectacular 100-second victory at a boxing event in Riyadh on December 23, said this in an interview with Boxing Social. The Stone Man, as the Croatian is called, who promised to destroy Usyk, admired our compatriot and suggested that he would beat Fury.

"I believe in Usyk's victory. I think this is a fight with a 50-50 chance of winning. It will be tough for both of them, but I give Usyk a slight advantage in this fight because he's always in great shape, he has great footwork, and he throws a lot of punches. He's a really good fighter," Hrgovic said. It should be noted that the Croatian is a mandatory contender for one of Oleksandr's belts.
