Kravtsov spoke about Usyk

Eduard Kravtsov, the head of the Russian boxing team's coaching council, made ridiculous statements about Oleksandr Usyk's (21-0, 14 KOs) chances in a fight against Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs). The Russian representative called the British boxer the favorite of the confrontation, and the Ukrainian's weakness was his patriotic position.

He said this in an interview with Championship.com. According to him, Fury's superiority in physical data speaks in favor of him, while Usyk allegedly holds his punches to the body poorly. At the same time, the Russian considers this a manifestation of Alexander's psychological weakness, to which the coach of the Russian national team attributed the boxer's pro-Ukrainian statements.

"I take the best Usyk and the best Fury. For me, Tyson is the leader. 60 to 40. No one has canceled the 20-kilogram advantage. Fury will use his weight tactically. Usyk has problems with his body and psychology. He is more careful. But now this is one of the problems. And with the body. It's not the first time he's had these issues. The body is psychology. He gives himself a slack and breaks down. All its bravado, political statements... All this is a defensive reaction to the weakness of psychology," Kravtsov said.

The week before last, the broadcaster of the Usyk-Fury fight in Ukraine was announced and the cost of the show was determined. Former world champion Andy Ruiz (35-2, 22 KOs) made his prediction for the fight. Jordan Thompson (15-1, 12 KOs), the sparring partner of the two rivals, also shared his expectations for the duel.

Before that, Fury spoke frankly about Usyk, calling him a terrible person. The British boxer also spoke about being bullied in his younger years, when he was offered to quit the sport. In addition, the fantastic fees of the opponents for the May 18 fight were announced.

It became known that the second rematch between Usyk and Fury is scheduled for mid-October. Tyson himself has already confirmed that he has no intention of giving up fight #2 against the Ukrainian.
