"It should be a great fight, and hand speed will be key. Who can withstand more punches. Usyk has a lot going for him and he's a lefty. Fury has shown himself very well many times and his styles define fights. When a person who fights a big man is faster and can throw powerful punches, he can win. But if you get hit, it could be over. It's all about not giving up. I truly believe that Usyk doesn't want to give up, that's why he's here," Holyfield said.
