Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) will defeat British Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) and become the absolute world heavyweight champion on May 18. At the same time, the Gypsy King, as the Manchester native is called, will either lose by a decision of the judges or be disqualified.

This opinion was expressed in an interview with World Boxing News by former heavyweight world champion Steve Cunningham, who in April 2013 knocked Fury out, which was his second knockdown. According to the American, Tyson will not be able to take advantage of his size advantage over Usyk.

"I think Usyk will beat Fury by a judges' decision. Either that or Fury will be disqualified. Fury, as he usually does, will try to pile on Usyk to wear him down. But I think the referee will be warned about this before the fight by Usyk's team, and Fury will be taken off his points," Cunningham said.

Before that, Tyson promised to beat Usyk easily and also mentioned the war in Ukraine. In turn, Oleksandr told what he would do if the Briton refused to enter the ring on May 18.

In addition, the World Boxing Council (WBC) announced its intention to change the rules of boxing for the sake of the fight between Usyk and Fury. And British fans suddenly began to give up on the Ukrainian's chances of winning.

The legendary Lennox Lewis also spoke about the fight, urging not to write off the Ukrainian. In addition, the fees of Oleksandr and Tyson for the fight were announced.
