Roy Jones spoke out about Usik and Fury superfight

Ukraine's Oleksandr Usik (20-0, 13 KOs) is the only heavyweight contender to defeat Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) of Great Britain. But another representative of the United Kingdom, Anthony Joshua (25-3, 22 KOs), as well as American Deontay Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs) are far behind the two champions in their boxing intelligence.

This opinion in an interview with the propaganda TV channel "Match TV" was expressed by former world champion in five weight categories Roy Jones Jr. The fan of the dictator Vladimir Putin, who received the citizenship of the Russian Federation and the "LPR", noted that in the potential confrontation between Usik and Fury, the British will have the advantage due to his physical data.



"It's not an easy situation in the heavyweight division. No one has ever beaten Tyson Fury, and right now I would say that only Usik can do it. Wilder has a stronger punch, but Fury and Usik have more intelligence. That said, Fury is also very big, so that gives him an advantage. That's why Fury and Usik are at the top now, and Joshua, Wilder and the Chinese boxer (Zhang Zhilei - ed.) are one step down," Jones said.


Recall that Saudi Arabia intends to organize the fights Usik - Fury and Joshua - Wilder in one night. Later, the media published the fees of the boxers for the grand show. The total amount would be at least $250 million. That said, Anthony has already confirmed his fight against Deontay.


Promoter Amir Abdallah confirmed that the organizers already have a date for such an event. He also said about the threat of disqualification of the participants of the future tournament.


As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the next fight of Alexander Usik caused a real stir in Poland. The legendary Lennox Lewis gave his forecast for the confrontation between the Ukrainian and Tyson Fury.
