Former world heavyweight champion Tony Bellew does not really believe that his former rival Alexander Usyk will be able to defeat the leaders of the heavyweight division – Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury.
“Of course, Usyk has chances in a fight against Joshua or Fury. His boxing skills determine whether he has these chances in a fight with any opponent. Usyk can outbox anyone. And I believe that he will defeat everyone, unless the opponent picks up to him and will not make size an important factor in combat.
I think Usyk is an amazing boxer, but in the end he will be defeated by size. And this is very sad, because I believe that this should not happen in boxing. If size wins you, and not your opponent’s class, then, in general, you are competing in the wrong weight category. Divisions exist for a reason. Usyk is a great fighter, but it seems to me that Fury and Joshua are too strong opponents for him, “Tony Bellew said in an interview with YouTube channel Behind The Gloves.
