Groves praised the fight between Usyk and Fury

Former world middleweight champion George Groves continues to insist that Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) will defeat Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) in a fight on May 18. The 35-year-old Briton strongly disagrees with the idea that his compatriot will win due to his size advantage.

Groves expressed this opinion in an interview with the talkSport Boxing YouTube channel, Boxing News 24/7 reports. The ex-boxer noted that Usyk has exceptional skills and will simply exhaust Fury with his sharpness of throwing punches and speed of movement around the ring.

"I've always said: Usyk is a dark horse. Don't write this guy off. We've seen heavyweights rise to the heavyweight division before and dominate it. Many people thought it was unbelievable that he would never compete with Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury. I still think Usyk will beat him. He is an exceptional fighter. In terms of boxing ability, Usyk is much better," Groves said.
