Jones spoke about the second fight between Usyk and Fury

Former world light heavyweight champion Roy Jones expressed confidence that Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs) is not capable of knocking out Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs). According to the American, our compatriot proved with his performance in the heavyweight division that he is able to take a punch.

Jones said this in an interview with Betway, Boxing Social portal informs. According to the American, who is a fan of Kremlin dictator Vladimir Putin and holds a Russian passport, Fury's early victory in the rematch with Usyk looks unrealistic.

"Have you ever seen Fury knock someone out? He fought Wilder and managed to come back after a knockdown, and then he stopped him in the rematch. But Usyk is made of a different test. Joshua beat him badly, but couldn't knock him out. So how can Fury knock Usyk out? It's unrealistic. Joshua knocked out Francis Ngannou, and Fury couldn't even do that. How can Fury knock Usyk out if Joshua couldn't do it?" Jones said.

Roy Jones had his last fight in 2018.

Before that, the American gave an unambiguous forecast for the revenge of the Ukrainian and the British. And his compatriot Teofimo Lopez (20-1, 13 KOs) called for hats off to Fury for agreeing to fight Usyk.

In turn, Oleksandr announced his radical plan to continue his career after the rematch with Tyson. The Ukrainian also named the most difficult moment of the fight with the Briton. In addition, our boxer spoke frankly about his opponent.

Saudi Arabia has already officially announced the date of the second fight between Usyk and Fury. The boxers' rematch fees have been announced. It is expected that the boxing rules will be changed in the second fight.

Before that, New Zealand heavyweight Joseph Parker (35-3, 23 KOs) dispelled the main myth about the Ukrainian's weakness. And Russian Oleg Taktarov called the results of Oleksandr's and Tyson's fights fabricated.

Promoter Bob Arum noted that he does not consider the Ukrainian to be the strongest boxer in the world. There was also an unexpected twist in the rematch between Usyk and Fury. It happened after Croatian Filip Hrgovic (17-1, 14 KOs) lost to British Daniel Dubois (21-2, 20 KOs).
