Legendary British boxer Lennox Lewis has named his compatriot Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) the winner of the fight with Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs). The former absolute world heavyweight champion urged not to discount the Ukrainian.

Lewis said this in an interview with talkSport. According to the winner, Vitali Klitschko, a huge difficulty for Usyk is that Fury is approaching the May 18 fight in perhaps the best shape of his career. In addition, Lennox repeated the traditional narrative about Tyson's superiority in physical data.

"The fight with Tyson Fury will not be easy for anyone. He moves well, and you also have to take into account the difference in height. A few weeks before the fight, he's in great shape. This tells me that he is serious about the fight and we will have a great fight. Usyk will not be facing a fat Tyson Fury, but a focused guy. I always say that a big heavyweight will beat a small heavyweight. I'm betting on Tyson to win on points, but don't count Usyk out," Lewis said.

It became known that the second rematch of the boxers is scheduled for mid-October. Tyson himself has already confirmed that he does not intend to give up fight #2 against the Ukrainian.
