    Usyk Manager Says If Fury Fight Does Not Happen April 29, Usyk Will Pursue Mandatory

    It doesn't seem like a done deal.

    Usyk UD. Fury would have a better chance with his old style.

    Absolutely. Although I believe Usyk will beat any version of Fury, the Fury of 2015 would be able to make it more competitive, no doubt. He is looking at a wide UD loss now, 116-112 or 117-111 to Usyk.

    You think Usyk beats Fury from Wilder 2? That was a scary dude.

    Styles make fights. That Kronk style works perfectly against the Wilders and Whytes of the world. Usyk is a different beast entirely, requires a whole different approach to beat him.

    I don't disagree with that assessment. We have seen far less talented pressure fighters get to Usyk than Fury though. I think that version of Fury was rough enough to corner Usyk and beat on him through the guard. Not saying it would be a guarantee, but Usyk doesn't want to see that version of Fury, he'd much rather get the Wlad Fury.

    The approach will be to punch him in the face, and I belive it will serve fury pretty well.

    You're deluded mate

    All of this evidence that Fury hasn't signed and is putting on an act, and yet you're making daily posts genuinely asking when the announcement/poster/presser will be

    Never seen anything like this. Don't even think AJ 'fans' at the peak of AJmania circa 2017-2018 were this bad. Gives me flashbacks to Floyd's fans... except Floyd being a 5-weight world champ, who held world titles across 3 decades and who had 26 world title fights made it slightly more bearable

    "I'd wager"

    You'd lose the wager. I've been saying that Wilder was top 3 at heavyweight for about two years now and I can't remember what my ratings were in 2019 or before. I rate him above Joshua primarily based on his KD/KO threat and his far greater mental strength, as well as not being NOMAS7'd by a 25/1 fringe contender, though Joshua is still in Usyk's tier 1 and better than his other opponents save perhaps Briedis. My opinion of Whyte hasn't changed a jot since he lost to Fury, by the way and I never believed that Fury would be retiring post-Whyte.

    I used to think Wilder was grossly overrated when my primary source for boxing information was watching Hatman videos a couple of years ago. Although prior to that Hatman said that he thought Wilder would beat Joshua, was underrated technically and was the biggest puncher in heavyweight history. It's funny how these narratives change.

    Anyone's record can be critiqued in the way you're attempting to critique Fury's. Objectively Wlad and Wilder had the longest single reigns at heavyweight since 1985 and are recognised as two of the hardest punchers in heavyweight history, along with being 6'5+, athletic, Olympic medallists and having home and A-side advantage.

    He's more tier 1 than Joshua.

    Nope, arguably his best win even if he beats him fairly.
    Fury would get a lot of credit if he mans up and winst that fight before summer.
