"I want Usik to beat him": former world champion said harsh words about Fury
American trainer Robert Garcia wished Oleksandr Usik (21-0, 14 KOs) a victory over Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) in the fight for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion. Anthony Joshua's (27-3, 24 KOs) former mentor emphasized that the Gypsy King, as the Briton is called, should be held accountable for his attitude towards the fight with Francis Ngannou (0-1, 0 KOs).
Garcia said this in an interview with the Boxing Social YouTube channel. The former world featherweight champion noted that Fury showed disrespect for boxing in preparation for the fight against Ngannou, for which he paid with a knockdown and an unconvincing points victory. Now the Briton must finally answer for his performance.
"I would like Usik to beat him just because of his last performance. I think he disrespected boxing, Fury was completely out of shape. People think he lost. I think he won, but he should have destroyed Ngannou. That's why I would like Usik to give him a good beating. Of course, if Fury is in shape, it will be a tough fight. He'll use his weight, his tricks, he'll pile on and push Usik away. If he's in great shape, I'm betting on him to win, but I'd like to see the opposite," Garcia said.
