Evander Holyfield predicts Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk

Ever since the match between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk was pulled out of the jaws of confirmation, both fighters have moved on and have selected opponents for their next ring appearance. Usyk is expected to fight Daniel Dubois in August, and Fury recently announced that he will be updating everyone with fight news.

Here's exactly what Fury said on his Instagram story a few days ago: 'Keep tuned, big announcement coming. I know I've said it a few times now but I'm very excited. It's here, it's landed' Hopefully, fight fans will hear about his next opponent soon; Fury could return in late August or September'

The boxing legend Evander Holyfield showed heavy confidence in Tyson Fury's abilities as a boxer and had interesting insights to share for a potential match between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk.

Evander Holyfield explains why he thinks Fury has a greater chance of winning against Oleksandr Usyk, and it will be interesting to see how accurately his thoughts match up with reality when the two heavyweights fight in the ring.

"No! I think Tyson Fury has shown that he is a great fighter," Holyfield said as quoted by boxing-social.com. "Out of all the fighters, he's the one that has been able to make adjustments, and making adjustments makes you better.

The fact of the matter is, ain't nobody has beat him! I don't know [how Usyk could beat Fury]. Ain't nobody did it and, until somebody does it, who's to say anybody can? If nobody has beat you, then you ain't shown you can lose".

The heavyweight legend last appeared in the boxing ring against Vitor Belfort and was knocked out in the very first round. In spite of the bitter loss, he does not mind being part of an exhibition bout again. He recently revealed that he is open to fighting his heated-rival Mike Tyson; if they actually fight, let's hope there's no ear-biting this time.
