The fight is scheduled for February 17

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) champion Francis Ngannou (0-1, 0 KOs) made his prediction for the fight between WBA, WBO, IBO, IBF titlist Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) and WBC champion Tyson Fury (34) -0-1, 24 KOs). According to the Cameroonian Frenchman, Fury will win this fight.

"If I am objective, I will say that Tyson will win. On my own behalf, I will still say Fury. Of course, I'm not discounting Usyk. I know he can win this fight. He has a good chance, maybe even a very good chance. But I still pick Tyson. I still want him to win so that I can meet him in a rematch," boxing-social.com quoted the 37-year-old fighter as saying.

On February 17, 2024, Usyk will fight Tyson Fury for the absolute heavyweight championship. At stake will be the WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO titles. This will be the first battle in the history of the four-belt era.
