    Idk man, I saw Chazz landing about 10
    Punches in 7 rounds, Usyk was immaculate against an underwhelming opponent

    Usyk is too small for heavyweight, moving up was a mistake.

    He could have dominated cruiserweight for years.

    Usyk can decision most of the heavies. Just can't KO them.

    He's never known for his KO power. Even at cruiser, he stops people on accumulation. At heavy, he's going have a harder time knocking people out.

    A proper HW like Dubois would have killed him in 30 seconds.

    It was good but need to see him against a better prepared fighter.

    I missed this fight, was it actually competitive? Or are people judging Usyk's success off his power? He wasn't a huge puncher at cruiser, what made y'all think he would be a big puncher at HW? This fight tells us nothing about Usyk in the HW division unless he looked awful, but seems like most had him shutting him out.

    LOL!!!! Love the bitter little posts by the usual suspects :D

    “Usyk don’t hit hard enough doe!”

    He just beat the fight out of Witherspoon and had a highlight reel KO in his last fight. Lol Eat **** haters

    What a worthless fight. Usyk won't get a title shot against AJ/Ruiz next, he better fight an actual top heavyweight next. I'd like to see him against Joseph Parker.

    What I did see was that fat bag was able to counter Usyk flush on the face. Especially the right. I wonder who else has a straight right hand but is much more quicker and powerful? Wonder what happens when that lands?

    He absolutely dominated the fight, every single round. Typical Usyk performance idk what people expected, he doesnt have huge power

    Nah, that's just an overreaction. He was being extra cautious. He doesn't want to debut at HW, and get KO'd by Chazz Freaking Witherspoon. Also, this was a last minute replacement. He needed to shake off the rust, he was coming off of an injury, and he probably wanted to test his stamina. See how well he can take a punch. He's a smart fighter, he's not going to chuck it all just to impress the fans with a blowout KO2 win.
