Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury are considered one of the year's most anticipated matches. Despite the fact that there is no clear indication of when or if it will happen, there is every chance that an agreement can be reached within the next few weeks.
There is a common belief among boxing fans that Fury, because of his size, will have an advantage, while they also believe that Usyk's main weapon will be the speed he possesses. Mike Tyson, the legend of this sport, had some interesting things to say about such assumptions.
In his opinion, Usyk must fight Fury in order to prove his worth. As far as he is concerned, running is not going to bring him any benefit. "[Usyk] can’t run forever. Tyson’s going to get him in the corner, he’s going to get him with some punches, and he’s going to hurt him eventually," Tyson told iD Boxing, as quoted by boxingscene.com "He’s going to run all night.
He has to stay and fight to win the fight. At some particular time, he’s going to have to stand and fight. He can’t run and box all night – they’re not gonna give him the decision, now with Tyson. They want to see some fighting.
After watching him and Deontay Wilder in a fight, they ain’t going to go for no running and hitting."
Mike Tyson on Tyson Fury
Mike Tyson still believes that Fury will have an advantage in this match and that he will win.
It appears that Mike is a big fan of Fury and the style he follows. "Tyson Fury is going to win, and I think Tyson should fight more. They take too much time in between fights," Tyson said. "I fought 15 times in one year. I’m a strong believer of four or five times a year; they should fight."
