"It's not disrespectful, but..." Boxing legend speaks about the fight between Usyk and Fury
Former absolute world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis called Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) and Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) real animals. The legendary Briton expressed confidence that fans will see a real battle on February 17.
Lewis said this in an interview with the YouTube channel Fight Hub TV, Boxing Scene 24/7 reports. He noted that both boxers move around the ring perfectly, which they will use. At the same time, Fury will rely on his physical superiority over Usyk in size.
"This is not disrespectful, but everyone has an animal side. Usyk reminds me of a rabbit because he moves well and no one can catch him. Then I look at Tyson Fury and he looks like a giraffe. I see them as two animals fighting each other, but who will win? I don't think Tyson needs to move around much. He will use the ring. And Usyk will have to move a lot. But you have to remember that Usyk is a former absolute heavyweight champion. He's a winner who survived, who doesn't like to lose," Lewis said.
