Former IBF light welterweight world champion Serhiy Lipinets said that the performance of the Ukrainian heavyweight Oleksandr Usik in the fight with Derek Chisora was good, but in the end of the fight the former leader of the cruiserweight was experiencing difficulties. At the same time, Lipinets believes that in the future it will be difficult for Usik to fight the leaders of the heavyweight.
“In my opinion, Alexander Usik looked great. In the end it was hard for him – the opponent was bigger, hitting hard. Maybe he was ill-prepared for this fight. He didn’t look as smart as usual.
Usyk has good chances, but it will be very difficult for him. For example, Fury both moves and hits. He is uncomfortable, long-armed and strikes from nowhere. I think we’ll still see it.
Maybe Gassiev will show himself in the heavyweight division with his impact and power. I believe that he will create a rustle, “said Sergei Lipinets in an interview with the YouTube channel USACHEV TV.
We will remind, Lipinets also said that Vasily Lomachenko would have knocked out Teofimo Lopez if he had a powerful blow.
