Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk: Mike Tyson explains why Gypsy King would win
Mike Tyson has given his prediction for the potential world heavyweight championship unification fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk.
Boxing fans are waiting with not such bated breath for the two world champions to go head-to-head to decide an undisputed champion at the weight.
The pair were meant to fight at the end of April but talks eventually broke down with both fighters being blamed by the other for the collapse.
It’s all got a bit tiresome especially as big fights for Fury have fallen through before, most notably when he was meant to face fellow Brit Anthony Joshua.
There has been talk that the two men could still meet in December in Saudi Arabia on the same bill that would see AJ take on Deontay Wilder.
Between the four men, who have all held versions of the world titles at one point, they could be earning $200 million for their night’s work.
However as of yet those fights haven’t been announced and instead the Gypsy King is spending his time beefing with people on social media.
Should the fight take place though the one time ‘most dangerous man on the planet,’ Iron Mike, is predicting that his namesake will win.
“Tyson Fury [will win], he’ll over power him,” Tyson recently told iFL TV.
“Usyk can’t run that long with him. Tyson’s going to wear him down, he’ll get on him, wear him down and then he’s going to pound on him.
“Usyk’s not going to win a title running. Usyk’s not going to beat Tyson moving and running, at some point in the fight he’s going to have to fight.
“Fury’s a different fighter to AJ, he’s going to be more consistently on the guy but AJ nearly stopped him with body punches, AJ was hurting him with body punches but he was doing it often enough.”
The undefeated Mancunian has beat both Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora last year by stopping both fellow British boxers, the latter his third win over the same opponent.
Usyk hasn’t been in the ring since defeating Joshua for the second time in the space of a year, when he stopped the former Olympian last summer.
Fury has recently been going after the world of MMA with his social media rants, taking shots at Jon Jones and Joe Rogan, whilst he’s been challenged by Jake Paul to fight Francis Ngannou.
