"He can lie down": former Russian world champion predicts what Usyk will do to Fury
Russian boxer Dmitry Kudryashov (25-6, 24 KOs) expressed confidence that Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) will face serious resistance from Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) in the fight for the title of absolute world champion. The former holder of some minor titles noted that the Briton has never faced opponents as fast as the Ukrainian.
Kudryashov said this in a commentary to Mma.metaratings.ru. According to the Russian, Usyk is not just capable of creating problems for Fury, but even knocking him out, and the fight itself is of incredible interest to fans, boxers, and experts.
"I haven't seen Fury face guys as fast and mobile as Usyk lately. Tyson is not an iron man, he can go down in a fight. Usyk has enough fighting skills to get Fury. So it will be a very interesting fight. It's clear that Fury is unique, he can make a riddle for any boxer. But I don't know if he can solve it for Oleksandr Usyk," Kudryashov said.
On September 29, it became known that Usyk and Fury signed a contract for a fight for the title of absolute world champion. The media found out that the fight will take place before the New Year or in January.
In addition, it became known whether a rematch between the Ukrainian and the Briton was planned. Promoter Bob Arum also announced Fury's fee for the upcoming fights.
Earlier, former world champion in two weight categories Paul Malignaggi expressed confidence that Tyson would avoid the fight. And former European Boxing Union (EBU) champion Spencer Oliver predicted Usyk's defeat in the fight against Fury.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Russian fans began to massively wish Oleksandr Usyk a defeat against Tyson Fury. The legendary Mike Tyson gave his prediction of the fight between the Ukrainian and the Briton. Our champion's former rival Mairis Briedis also spoke about the fight.
