Athletistic/MMA. Former WBC heavyweight contender Kevin Jones, who is awaiting Russian citizenship, believes that British heavyweight Tyson Fury will not face any difficulties in a fight against Ukrainian Alexander Usik. He shared this with Match TV.

“Fury will beat Usik easily. He is too big. Yes, Usik is thin and moves well, but Fury has those qualities too. As a boxer he is much stronger. It will all depend on how long Usik can last after the sixth . tour,” Johnson noted during a conversation with Match TV.

Usyk (21-0, KO 14) holds the WBA Super, WBO, IBF and IBO titles. His last fight took place in late August, when he scored an early victory over Briton Daniel Dubois.

Fury (33-0-1, KO 24) is scheduled to face former UFC champion Francis Ngannou on Oct. 28 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, under boxing rules.
