Mendez spoke about the fight between Usyk and Fury

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) champion Khabib Nurmagomedov was delighted with Oleksandr Usyk's (22-0, 14 KOs) victory over Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs). The Russian was especially impressed with the ninth round of the fight on May 18, during which the Ukrainian knocked his opponent out.

American trainer Javier Mendez, Nurmagomedov's mentor, said this in an interview with the propaganda publication Sport-Express. According to the expert, the fight between Usyk and Fury was fascinating and it was not clear who would eventually win until the end.

"A very competitive fight. One of those fights where nothing is clear until the end. Tyson was in the game until the final bell. At first, Usyk led, then Fury added, and only after a knockdown in the 9th round did the fight go in Usyk's direction. Khabib was very happy in the ninth round. Khabib believed in Usyk, but when in the middle of the fight Fury started punching Usyk in the body, Khabib said: "Uh-oh-oh". After the fight, Khabib just said it was a fantastic fight," Mendez said.

There were also three reasons why it is beneficial for promoters and organizations to leave all the belts to the Ukrainian. At the same time, our boxer's team will ask the IBF to make an exception for mandatory protection.

Fury has officially activated the rematch clause with Usyk. Bookmakers have already started accepting bets on the fight. They also disclosed the agreement under which the Ukrainian will lose the title of absolute champion.
