Usyk and Fury will fight on May 18

The unified heavyweight champion of the world Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) does not attach importance to the injury of Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs), which he received in one of his sparring matches. According to the Ukrainian boxer, the Gypsy King, as the Briton is called, has proven many times that he can get out of the most difficult situations.

Usyk himself said this in an interview with the Seconds Out YouTube channel. Our compatriot noted that Fury's main advantage in the May 18 fight will be his physical data, but Oleksandr himself is determined to win and carefully studies his opponent's weaknesses.

"A Fury autopsy? My strategy is to win the battle. That's it! Is his dissection a weakness? I have no idea. I can say that his main strength is that he is very big. But under certain circumstances, this may not be a strength anymore. Tyson is a great boxer because even when he fell, he always got up. This helped him become one of the world champions," Usyk said.
