"I started to worry about Usyk": former Ukrainian world champion tells about the most dangerous moment of the fight and King Kong Fury for Oleksandr

During the unification fight between Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs) and Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs), the former Ukrainian WBC welterweight champion Viktor Postol (31-5, 12 KOs) began to worry about the Crimean not because of the cut, but after a powerful uppercut by the Gypsy King. In addition, Postol compared the massive Englishman to King Kong.

According to the former WBC belt holder, he was confident in Usyk's victory on points, but there was a moment during the fight when Viktor began to worry about Oleksandr.

"I got excited when Sasha missed one of Tyson's powerful low blows. But the tension subsided a bit after Fury was counted out in the ninth round. Then Oleksandr had the advantage," said Postol.

Not that the critical, but rather dangerous period for Usyk was in rounds five through seven.

"Yes, yes. And it was obvious that it was difficult for Sasha to approach him, to get closer because of Fury's size. He's like King Kong, and Sasha looks small against him. It was obvious that he had a very hard time. But Oleksandr coped with everything," the famous boxer added.
