Jones praised the fight between Usyk and Fury

Lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) must come up with a specific plan for his fight against Oleksandr Usyk (921-0, 14 KOs), and not rely solely on his physical attributes. The Ukrainian boxer moves around the ring too quickly, so he will be a difficult target, but he will not be able to beat his opponent.

In an interview with the Boxing Scene website, former world champion in four weight categories Roy Jones Jr. expressed his confidence in this. According to the American, who is a fan of the Kremlin dictator Vladimir Putin and holds a Russian passport, Fury will definitely lose if he enters the ring in the same condition as he did for the fight against Francis Ngannou (0-1, 0 KOs).

"I like both guys. This is a tough fight. If Tyson Fury comes out like he did with Francis Ngannou and is not motivated, then Usyk will definitely beat him. But if Tyson is hungry for victory, then I will say that a good big guy usually beats a good little guy. Usyk is not that small. When you are very explosive, it doesn't matter what your size is. Explosiveness destroys anyone. Usyk is good and strong, but he's not explosive," Jones said.

As a reminder, Usyk and Fury were supposed to fight on February 17, but due to Tyson's autopsy, the fight was postponed to May 18. The day before, the World Boxing Organization (WBO) made a statement about the rematch between the Ukrainian and the British.

The former rival of the two boxers, Derek Chisora (34-14, 23 KOs), gave his categorical forecast for the fight. In addition, the legendary Vitaliy Klychko gave original advice to the Gypsy King.

Fury himself promised to destroy his opponent. He also spoke frankly about the injury that led to the postponement of the show. And Croatian heavyweight Agron Smakic (20-2, 18 KOs) told the whole truth about what happened in the British camp.

In turn, promoter Eddie Hearn informed that, according to the organizers of boxing nights in Saudi Arabia, the winner of the Usyk-Fury fight on May 18 will fight the strongest in the confrontation between Anthony Joshua (27-3, 24 KOs) and Francis Ngannou.

At the same time, the Ukrainian's team has already decided on a boxer who will replace Tyson if he refuses to enter the ring again. If the Briton does so, he will also face a multimillion-dollar fine.

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, Tyson Fury's father John sharply attacked Oleksandr Usyk's team representatives after they questioned the British boxer's injury.
