Russian boxing coach Gennady Mashianov called the victory of Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs) over Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs) in the May 18 fight fair. The mentor of light heavyweight Dmytro Bivol (23-0, 12 KOs) noted that the Ukrainian boxer showed a greater desire to win.

Mashyanov said this in an interview with the propaganda publication Sport-Express. The Russian expert emphasized that Usyk confirmed his high class and also managed to turn the tide of the fight, which initially was in favor of the Gypsy King.

"I'm glad, I'm happy that Usyk won. We already knew that Sasha was a high-level boxer, a master. But he also showed his character, and his desire to win this fight. Something didn't work out for him at first, but I was very impressed by his desire," Mashianov said.
