Oleksandr Usik was inferior to Tyson Fury after the first half of the fight for the title of absolute world champion, and to win, the Ukrainian had to change his tactics in the fight. Former world champion Timothy Bradley spoke about it.

According to the former title holder in two weight categories, the Briton continued to have an uppercut in the opening rounds, but the Ukrainian team was able to handle it and turn it into an advantage.

“We saw great work from Usik’s team preparing for an uppercut, Tyson threw a punch, and Usik was not timed by Fury, then he was quite close, allowing Alexander to fight. Done he good counterattacks.

It was a necessary adjustment Usyk made as the match progressed. This tactic produced results in the ninth round. Because of this, Usik’s left hand reached Tyson more than once,” BoxingNews 24 quotes Bradley.

Let’s remember that Usik’s victory over Fury brought him the absolute heavyweight championship. The fight went all 12 rounds. Usyk won by split decision – 115:112, 114:112, 113:114.
