Scott evaluates the fight between Usyk and Fury

The owner of the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt, Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs), will try to fight Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) at a lighter weight than usual. In this way, the Gypsy King, as the Manchester native is known, will try to offset the Ukrainian's speed advantage.

This opinion was expressed in an interview with the YouTube channel iFL TV by American trainer Malik Scott, who works with Deontay Wilder (43-3-1, 42 KOs), the DAZN portal writes. According to the expert, Fury in his perfect form should beat Usyk, and the fight itself promises to be very exciting.

"In fact, at first I was for Usyk, but then I saw Tyson Fury, who was 13 kilograms lighter than usual, and that changed my mind. He moved and looked like the good old Fury, which for me is the best version of Fury and not so vulnerable. This is a very good fight. We have Usyk as a lefty and we know what he has to offer. And we have Tyson. We know what he'll offer when he's in shape and mentally ready," Scott said.
