    The world's finest fighter p4p. It's a pleasure to watch. He cleaned out the deepest division in the sport. He just beat a legit natural HW. Chisora isn't the best HW out there, but he's a real legit contender, almost all of his losses have come against championship caliber HW's.

    He will no doubt be the underdog against Fury and Joshua, but we all want to the see the fight. If he can compete or even beat one of them he will no doubt be the surest ATG this sport has seen since Pacquiao and Mayweather.

    Hats off to this guy. And credit to Chisora too. He put in a real effort.

    Great fighter, that once again beat his dangerous opponent on the opponent's soil. But... I can't imagine him beating Fury. Fury will dominate Usyk easily

    It's a shame he is going to get sidelined whilst we get Fury AJ next year.

    Trying to think who he might fight, He's 34 years old soon. Downhill slope. Ask GGG.

    I thought he showed a lot of character, mental fortitude and toughness tonight. He clearly wasn't expecting that version of Chisora to turn up and lots of fighters would've been blowing out of their ass after 4 or 5 rounds of that and caved in in the second half of the fight and I mean just from the mental pressure, let alone the physical pressure.

    Yes, you can't really question his heart, mental fortitude or physical toughness after this fight.

    Based on his career to this date, absolutely, undoubtedly...what a fighter.

    But based on tonight, really?

    Very good fight. I’d love Usyk vs. Parker, Ruiz, or Wilder next. If AJ goes ahead with the Fury fight, Usyk/Parker could be for the WBO

    I don't see it. Tyson is the King of the gypsies err heavyweight. Usyk is overrated a tad.

    Usyk had a terrific run at CW but he's found his level at HW.

    The only thing left for the Usyk haters to cling to is he hasn't beaten the world's best HW's. That the only straw they have left to grasp. He's proved the haters wrong at every single wall of adversity.
