Tishchenko spoke about the Usyk-Fury fight

British boxer Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) is the clear favorite to fight Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion. At the same time, our compatriot can create serious difficulties for his opponent.

This opinion was expressed by Olympic champion Evgeny Tishchenko (12-1, 7 KOs) in an interview with the propaganda channel Russia Today. The 32-year-old Russian boxer also called Fury's fight with Francis Ngannou (0-1, 0 KOs), during which Tyson was knocked down for the seventh time in his career, a spectacle.

"In my opinion, Fury is the favorite in the fight with Usyk. I thought so before the confrontation with Ngannou, and now. I think Tyson either didn't take the duel with Francis seriously, or it was a kind of show to stir up interest in the upcoming battle with the Ukrainian. To slightly increase his chances of success. However, I won't write Usyk off - he is a very uncomfortable opponent. I didn't bet on him in the fight with Anthony Joshua either, but in the end, the Ukrainian outplayed the Briton and didn't allow him to do anything in the ring. Anything can happen," Tishchenko said.
