    Usyk s movement would be to good for Tua. That left hook is a problem for anyone if it lands right though. Usyk ud

    Usyk has the reach and movement to keep Tua at bay. My only issue is his best win at heavyweight is Chisora. I'll still pick Tua KO but if Usyk impresses against AJ then I'll be more open to picking a comfortable Usyk UD.

    I think Chisora might had beat Tua if will manage to finish him in first 4 rounds, Chisora is good boxer and might had KOed Tua if they had fought.

    Tua ofc most likely had chances to win vs Usyk if he managed to stop him before 8 th round for sure. IF.

    Where's Usyk's power to keep Tua off him? Is Usyk that elusive? Not really.

    Tua by Rnd 7 KO.

    Tua had a great chin and he could bang hard especially with the left hook. That being said he was a one dimensional plodder who didn’t make adjustments in real time and he simply could not deal with a skilled mover.

    Usyk by UD.

    If anyone did manage to stop Tua for the first time in his career and within 4 rounds, I don't think it would be Chisora.

    And back to Usyk/Tua. I'm not convinced by Usyk yet but he has 3 or 4 years to show his heavyweight wares.

    I think Usyk manages to stay out of the way of the worst. He won't exchange with Tua which is madness. I don't think Tua's feet are fast enough to close him down. Usyk on points.

    Tua’s too slow and wasn’t even that good. He pretty much preyed on lesser opponents that fought way too close to him which is the opposite of what Usyk would do. Bad matchup

    Styles makes fights and Usyk with his movement is all wrong for Tua. We've seen worse boxers than Usyk out box Tua for most of the fight. Maybe Tua can land a huge left hook late and turn the fight but my money would be on Usyk winning a UD.

    Usyks style is a problem for any HW in any ERA.


    I don't think there is anyone who could have easy fight with him.

    I'm a huge Chisora fan but I don't think for one moment he'd KO Tua, if Lewis couldn't KO a prime Tua, Chisora isn't doing it.

    No chance Chisora dents Tua. Chisora hasn’t the style to really do anything with Tua apart from meeting him head on and giving Tua a huge chance to land crippling left hooks. Good fight though
