The former welterweight world champion believes the Briton can win the fight.

Tyson Fury has a chance to defeat Oleksandr Usyk and become the undisputed champion of the world. This is what former world welterweight champion Alexander Gvozdyk said.

According to the Ukrainian boxer, there was a moment when he was afraid for his compatriot, because the Briton had a big advantage.

“There is a feeling that somewhere Fury has found his boxing, his rhythm, and it is scary in fact, it seems that the moment has come that Alexander will not be able to turn this fight in his favor.

At first, in the early rounds, it looked like Fury was doing nothing – he was running and looking. It seemed to me that even his face showed somewhere that he was not 100 percent confident in himself.

He then landed some nice uppercuts and some other punches. It started to look like the scales were in Fury’s favor, and with him seemingly holding his own and Sasha going straight ahead to fight, it felt like those early rounds were a tactical game and now he’s on and need to step up the fight. momentum. In fact, before this fight with Fury it was like that.

It seemed to me that he had an interesting moment when he performed an uppercut, and it seemed to me that he chickened out on Alexander, he seemed to smell something fried.

When he did not realize his victory, and then, in the next round, Sasha responded with a good counterattack, which knocked him out. After this, Fury immediately left both mentally and physically. And this fight began to be one-sided, it seemed to me. Maybe Fury turned around, after the 7th or 8th, but the picture of the fight was like he was done,” said Gvozdyk in a commentary by TYKE MASON.

We remind you that Oleksandr Usyk defeated Tyson Fury by split decision and became the first absolute heavyweight champion since 1999.

It was previously reported that Gvozdyk had finished preparing for the fight with Benavidez.
