    Witherspoon landed 21 of 208 punches last night, a meagre 10% Usyk by contrast landed 139 of 347 a 40% connect rate.

    We all know we are not going to see Usyk blast right through the heavyweight division but he’s going to dissect them like an elite Fencing fighter.

    That’s the thing with Usyk it’s the constant barrage that builds up and overwhelms

    I fell a sleep by the 5th round, watching that puny Usyk pitter pat his way to a mercy stoppage. That was the most pitiful KO i seen in a long time. When he fights a decent heavyweight that puts pressure on him. He's gonna fold like a deck of cards. Mark my words.

    If Uzyks chins is iron he can ruled the HW division! Chris Birds schooled david tua pretty easy! But at the moment his chin is a big factor at hw

    He’s got great skills for sure. I just don’t think he’s big enough or got the power to do it against the top boys. All credit to him if he does though because he’s starting at a disadvantage. Will be very interesting if the fights can be made.

    Drug tested Miller would be the same size as Usyk.

    You think Hearn would let Miller use his steroid ****tale vs Usyk?

    A 52 year old flabby man brought in on a few days notice withered. Go figure.

    Power for what? He clearly is a strong guy who has enough pop to keep his opponents honest.
    We have seen plenty of champions who rarely scored KO´s.

    Tyson Fury can deliver a solid punch, but he rarely does so. And it´s worked out pretty damn well for him.
    Usyk will be fine as long as he doesn’t let his opponents walk him down.

    In a 3 round kickboxing match, back in 2013.
    You honestly think Miller hasn’t improved as a boxer?

    He'd be about the same size as Chisora or Gary Mason off the drugs. Actually scratch that. Mason looked like he juiced as well.

    When was the last time that Witherflab fought? He was old, flabby, slow, inactive, and not very good. Usyk gets better work in sparring.
