"Keep thinking, brother!" Usyk broke his silence about the fight with Fury
Ukrainian boxer Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) has expressed confidence that he will win the world heavyweight title. Our compatriot also noted that he managed to get into the mind of the British boxer Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs), with whom he will compete for all four belts of the division on February 17.
Usyk, who has not spoken about his future opponent for more than a month, said this in an interview with the British corporation Sky Sports. The winner of three championship belts added that he was calm about some of Fury's disparaging remarks. In particular, Alexander is not offended when Tyson calls him a rabbit.
"The question is not whether I will become the absolute world champion, the question is when it will happen. I believe I can win. I got into Tyson Fury's head. And now he's constantly thinking about the rabbit. Keep thinking, brother!" Tony Bellew once said that I was a beast in boxing, and I said: "Not really, I'm just a white rabbit," Usyk said.
Earlier, former world champion Anthony Joshua (27-3, 23 KOs) gave his unequivocal prediction for the Usyk-Fury fight and explained why our compatriot would win. And in Russia, they told us how the Ukrainian's move to the super-heavyweight division affected the division.

In turn, the World Boxing Council (WBC) announced the contenders for the fight against the winner of the Fury-Usyk confrontation. In addition, the Ukrainian boxer puzzled 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.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, Tyson Fury's promoter Frank Warren does not consider the fight with Oleksandr Usyk to be the most difficult in his client's career.
