Former world champion Nelson: Fury will be too tough for Usyk in terms of size

Preliminary date of the fight – April 29

Former world cruiserweight champion Johnny Nelson named his favorite in a unification bout between the WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and WBO/WBA/IBF/IBO title holder Oleksandr Usyk.

“I think it’s a great fight. I’m leaning towards Fury being too big for Usyk in terms of size. I think it will work in his favor. Fury’s orthodox style will clash with Usyk’s unconventional style, but Alexander boxing is much more fluid.”

“However, I’m leaning towards Fury in this fight. Let’s get excited about this fight when they really agree, sign the contract and are ready to host it.”

Usyk’s promoter Alexander Krasyuk said he was optimistic about the imminent signing of a contract for a unification fight. At the same time, the Ukrainian side insists on the distribution of income “50:50”, given that Usyk owns three championship titles, and Tyson – one.

Fury and Usyk plan to hold a face-to-face fight for the title of absolute world champion on April 29 in London at Wembley Stadium. Fury’s promoters are urging the Ukrainian to fight in London, as the stadium in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) does not have time to build by the date of the fight.
