Froch evaluates the fight between Usyk and Fury

Former world middleweight champion Carl Froch of the United Kingdom ridiculed Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) for his behavior before fights. The ex-boxer noted that the Gypsy King, as the Briton is called, always tries to downplay the achievements of his rivals, which is the case with Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs).

Froch expressed this opinion in an interview with DAZN. He added that Fury makes himself look like a complete idiot by such actions. At the same time, the Briton emphasized that Tyson probably understands and takes seriously the danger that will come from Usyk in the fight for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion.

"I think if Fury tries to give Usyk too much attention by downplaying his achievements and saying he's not a super heavyweight and not a very good boxer, Tyson will make himself look ridiculous. It will look ridiculous. If Tyson Fury wants to say that Usyk is just a pumped-up middleweight, he'll just make himself look like an idiot. But deep down, I think he knows he has a problem. So Fury has to show respect for Usyk," Froch 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 boxing rules for the sake of the fight between Usyk and Fury. And British fans suddenly began to give up on the chances of defeating the Ukrainian.
