"Nobody will knock Fury out": Usyk alarms British fans before fight with Tyson
British boxing fans have expressed concern over the training of Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) ahead of his fight against Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs). Fans were puzzled by the fact that the Ukrainian is actively working on gaining muscle mass, which could affect his speed.
The talkSport portal writes about this, citing several comments from fans. Fans of the sport noted that Usyk should not work only to increase his punching power and abandon the idea of knocking out his British opponent, but focus on his strengths.
"There's nothing wrong with that, but if you start trying to gain mass and move slowly, giving up all your advantages, the fight could be short", "He'll look like a rabbit in the headlights when Fury looks at him across the ring", "I hope he doesn't go the knockout route. No one will knock out Tyson Fury, this man is a real undertaker. Need to box - go ahead," fans write.
As a reminder, on November 16, a press conference was held in London to officially announce the confrontation between the British and Ukrainian. The UK has already started talking about another postponement of the Usyk-Fury fight. And the Ukrainian's team named the main difficulties Oleksandr faced in preparing for the fight.
Earlier, bookmakers abruptly changed their quotes for the Usyk-Fury fight. Meanwhile, Oleksandr spoke about what he would do after defeating Tyson, who recorded a video message to the Ukrainian with a promise to knock him out by the end of the fourth round.
