Groves praises Usyk and Fury's fight

Former world middleweight champion George Groves expressed confidence that Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) will leave no chance for Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) in a fight for the world title. The 35-year-old Briton noted that the Ukrainian simply drives his opponent around the ring, forcing him to run out of breath.

Groves said this in an interview with the Grosvenor Sport portal, gbnews.com reports. According to the former boxer, Usyk's great advantage will be his excellent footwork. Moreover, the Ukrainian will not just move quickly around the ring, but will increase the pace with each round.

"I think Usyk will win. I know people are jumping on him a little bit because of the Dubois fight, but I think he's very, very good. Usyk will take Fury out of his comfort zone, Fury is a big guy and he's a big weight, and if Usyk makes him work harder than he has in the past, it's going to be a tough night for Tyson. Usyk will gain momentum with each round. I think he's going to win with a lot of confidence," Groves said.
