"I want Usyk to beat him": former world champion speaks out about Fury

Oleksandr ChekanovNews
Garcia gave a forecast for the fight between Usyk and Fury

American trainer Robert Garcia wished Oleksandr Usyk (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 Usyk 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 Usyk 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 Usyk away. If he's in great shape, I'm betting on him to win, but I'd like to see the opposite," Garcia said.

In addition, the Ukrainian boxer confused British fans with his training. And the sex symbol of world boxing, Australian Abani Bridges, made a categorical prediction about the confrontation between the Ukrainian and the British.

Frank Warren, Fury's promoter, does not consider the fight with Usyk to be the most difficult in his client's career. In turn, Eddie Hearn expressed hope for the British victory. In his turn, former world champion Carl Froch dramatically changed his forecast for the fight.
