Ukrainian world champion Alexander Usik is once again predicted to lose the battle with the Briton.
Oleksandr Usyk cannot beat Tyson Fury. This is what welterweight Conor Benn said. According to the Briton, the Ukrainian world champion according to the WBA, WBO and IBF cannot even come close to his compatriot.
At the same time, Benn said that this will only happen if the holder of the WBC belt is in his best shape.
“I’ll bet on the Brit any day. Say what you want about Fury, but he’s an exciting heavyweight who brings this party to life. He’s a beast with ferocious size, anthropometry and skills . I don’t think there are many heavyweights today who can beat Fury: Even if he didn’t have a good performance in his last fight, whatever the reasons, they were there. Everyone has good days, every fighter has their bad days at work Maybe what that’s what happened.
If Fury is committed to fighting Usyk, then I don’t see how Alexander will come close to him. But on the other hand, if Tyson is like he was with Francis Ngannou, it won’t do him any good,” Benn said in a commentary via The Ropes.
Let’s recall that earlier former world champion Carl Froch expressed confidence that the fight between Usik and Fury will be postponed to March.
