It is expected that Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk will fight on April 29 in a heavyweight title match. A few days after the story about the match and the possible outcomes started to circulate, many pro boxing legends as well as fans of this sport decided to give their predictions regarding the match between the two giants.
It is widely believed that Usyk will prove to be Tyson Fury's most challenging opponent to date. An opinion on the match was given to the media by Hall of Famer Carl Froch. According to Froch, Usyk is a great boxer, and we are going to see the best of him from now on.
The match between him and Anthony Joshua was a perfect example of that. "AJ took the fight and Usyk outclassed him and became unified champion. It was just an amazing performance and one that not many people thought he could win with so much ease," Froch said on his YouTube channel Froch on Fighting, as quoted by dazn.com
Oleksandr Usyk and his tactics
What is certain is that Usyk will prepare well for this match.
There are tactics with which he could make the job easier, but he is aware of the kind of opponent Fury is and how dangerous he can be. The Ukrainian knows that this is probably the match of his career. "Usyk was pure class, he’s a quality operator and I don’t think we’ve seen the best of him at heavyweight.
If Usyk can manoeuvre Tyson Fury around the ring, keep him on his back foot, we know Tyson can go 12 rounds on his feet, nice and light, but he’s getting bigger, he’s getting heavier. Usyk is coming in really confident he can do the business against Fury.
This fight is going to be closer than most of the boxing experts think. All the pressure is on Fury”. We are hoping to see the real spectacle.
