WBC heavyweight title holder Tyson Fury has always praised the former undisputed world champion in the first heavyweight division, Alexander Usik, and said that the Ukrainian would become a formidable force in heavyweight. However, after the fight between Usik and Derek Chisora, the “Gypsy King” came to the conclusion that the change in the weight category had a negative impact on the undefeated boxer.
In Fury’s opinion, Usyk is far from being what fans are used to seeing in cruiserweight in the heavyweight division.
“Usyk is a good boxer, we saw him fight Chisora. However, in the heavyweight division, he is not the same as he was in the cruiserweight. I think the difference is too big. His weight increased from 89 to 98 kilograms, and these additional kilograms significantly affected him, “Tyson Fury said in an interview with talkSPORT.
We will remind, Fury also stated that Usyk should have convincingly passed Derek Chisora.
