According to the Gypsy King’s father John, Oleksandr Usyk is “frightened” of facing Tyson Fury for the undisputed heavyweight title because he knows how good his son is.
Fury cemented his status as the best heavyweight on the planet by knocking out Deontay Wilder over the weekend, rising from the canvas to keep his undefeated record intact in an all-time classic bout. Despite being the undisputed lineal champion of boxing’s blue-riband division, the Brit only holds one of the four recognized world titles, with Usyk holding the other three.
At the end of September, the Ukrainian dethroned unified king Anthony Joshua, and he’ll defend his new belts against the Brit in a rematch early next year.
