The former world champion does not believe that the Ukrainian boxer can overcome the size of the Briton.

For all Oleksandr Usik’s skills, he will not be able to beat Tyson Fury. Former world champion Carl Froch thinks so.

In his opinion, the Ukrainian world champion will ultimately not be able to overcome the main advantage of the Briton – his large size.

“It’s going to be a very, very tough fight. Usik is great, technically equipped and efficient. He’s a former undisputed world champion in the cruiserweight division, an Olympic gold medalist. Usik moved up to heavyweight, and we saw what he did twice. Anthony Joshua. He recently beat Daniel Dubois, despite a controversial low blow, he eventually got the job done.

It’s a tight fight for Usyk because Fury is so big. He is a mountain of a man. How tall is he? 210 centimeters? He may have shrunk to 207cm because he has aged and expanded. It’s a bit difficult for him to carry the weight, but Fury is very big and efficient, light on his feet, with quick hands. Amazing boxer, incredible mind. I just think Fury will be too much for Usyk to handle,” Froch said on his podcast.

Let’s remember that Froch previously advised Usyk to have a sparring partner to better prepare for the fight with Fury.
