Critical moment for Usyk in the fight with Fury is named
Famous British boxing trainer Dave Caldwell gave his forecast for the fight for the absolute heavyweight championship between WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) and WBC titleholder Tyson Fury (33), 24 KOs). According to the expert, the anthropometry of the fighters will be a critical factor in the fight.
Caldwell is confident that Tyson Fury will have an advantage in the fight against Usyk.
"I just think his size will make a big difference. For me, Usyk has all the skills and abilities to beat Fury. He really does. But I think Tyson's size will be too much for him at this stage of his career. Look, Usyk has a long career. He has been an amateur for a long time, he's not a spring chicken. His peak was in the heavyweight division. The super heavyweight division slowed him down a little bit," Caldwell said on the Pro Boxing Fans YouTube channel, as translated by Vringe.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, on September 29, Usyk and Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) signed a contract for a fight for the title of absolute world champion. The media found out that the fight would take place before the New Year or in January.
Recently, the legendary Mike Tyson voiced his forecast for the fight of the year. Iron Mike thinks that Fury will beat Usyk as well.
Fury's promoter Bob Arum said that his fighter will receive a 9-figure sum for the fight with the Ukrainian.
Earlier, Fury made a radically new statement about the fight with Usyk. Before that, insider Mike Coppinger said that the promoters were optimistic about the chances of organizing a fight between the Ukrainian and the Briton.
