I know there's not much to go on atm to assess this.

Well I suppose Usyk's a bit more proven with his WSB experience. Looking at how easily Usyk dealt with Joyce and Magomedrasul Majidov would suggest he has a strong chance against Boytsov and Fury. Spizka is not even on his level and has looked quite fragile so far.

At first I wasn't such a fan of the WSB but it grew on me quickly. Tbh the experience Usyk got fighting Majidov, Nistor and Joyce over 5 rounds without headgear is probably far better experience than Price's first 3 years as a pro.
