My interpretation of Usyk at heavy--he's a bit bored.

    I would call Chisora a Whyte level player tbh.. Really won the first fight and was winning the 2nd,,

    Usyk will have difficulties with fighers like Chisora who can take punches and who punch hard themselves. Big mass of body that won't let get KOd by Usyk. Whyte might beat Usyk.

    Usyk should be tested against other heavyweights first, like Hugie Fury, David Price, maybe Joyce and Dubois, then go for a Joshua/Fury who are not just a big block of mass in the ring, but actually quite agile and like to box and not attack with maximum violence only.

    With Usyk and his size/punchpower its kind of a "styles make fights" thing. It always depends on who he fights. But he will heat up the heavyweight scene so I like that he changed to the HW division.

    Uysk needs to fight a few ultra shot 40year olds like haye did and put some hw Kos on his record.

    The problem with Usyk, is his punches are too puny to cause significant damage against these huge obese behemoths. I just hope he doesn't get trapped in the corner and seriously hurt next time.

    Or anyone on Wilders record lol not fury. Joshua got a touch will Charles Martin didn’t he, Usyk would’ve marmalised that boy

    I don't think any top heavyweight is capable of trapping Uysk in th corner, such is the difference in foot speed.

    He's as natural a heavyweight as Ali or Louis. Should be given the same leeway I feel.

    I see him easily beating the likes of Povetkin or Wilder. Whyte I see getting outboxed in a similar way to Chisora.

    I agree though, he needs to start getting acclimated to the division. The more HWs he fights the more impressive he's going to start looking.

    He's not exactly young. He's almost 34 now.
    So, yeah, he's probably on the decline.
    But he's possibly very capable of rising to the occasion when he gets a big fight, of course. That's true of any fighter though.

    You think he's bored cos he's fighting beneath himself...
    Thats funny.
    nah, simple fact is when he faces a big strong heavyweight that can fight he's gonna lose.

    Fact is he's overhyped massively at heavy, he wont be able to hop skip and jump like an amateur out of the way of the heavy handed lads for 12, thats for sure.

    This. Fighters who are 'bored' end up losing fights unexpectedly, usually in resounding fashion. They don't grind out wins over contenders. Usyk isn't bored - he doesn't have all the tools to beat the top 5 big boys.

    I'd fight AJ for a £5m payday

    Why wouldn't Usyk at the end of his career?

    He's targeting AJ because AJ has three belts.

    Wilder has zero.

    Always like when posters make the size comparison to HW (CW) legends of the past.

    However Ali & Louis were not fighting the SHWs of the current era. And for the love of God nobody bring up old HWs like Buddy Baer or similar. BB was a 6'6" stiff compared to today's big HWs.
