Fury spoke about the fight with Usyk

The current world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) has made a bold statement about his fight against Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) for all the belts in the division. The Gypsy King, as the Briton is called, promised to easily defeat the Ukrainian and named his main advantages.

Fury said this in an interview with the Box Nation YouTube channel, essentiallysports.com reports. According to the holder of the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt, he has a much larger arm span than Usyk and is also much heavier than our compatriot, which affects the strength of his opponents' punches.

"He's only moving his head, not moving his body. So let him keep moving his head, I'll just beat his body. I know I can take his punches, no matter who he is. But he won't last all night in front of a 122-kilogram guy who is fighting him, who, by the way, has enough stamina. And who can box all night at any pace. I'm going to beat him, and given the image he's earned from beating Joshua, I think it's going to be a sweet victory," Fury said.

As a reminder, Usyk and Fury will fight on May 18, after the fight in February had to be postponed due to the British fighter's cut. Afterward, Tyson spoke frankly about his injury.
