    Good, this will give Usyk even more time to prepare and recover.

    He's been back from Ukraine since March, so March-August is enough time.

    These long timescales two fights a year do nothing but push boxing fans away.

    Enough time to sort his mind out, prepare himself for the fight and make sure he's at a decent enough weight.

    Good I have a vacation to Los cabos Mexico during the original fight date. I couldn't be more happier about it being pushed back.

    Good, Usyk lost like 10kg because of the war, it will give him more time to put on weight more naturally

    I know that the war will be used as an excuse not to give AJ any credit if he wins. People will just say "oh look, AJ beating another boxer out of his prime".

    I know that Usyk is an intelligent fighter, and wouldn't come back if he didn't think he was ready. He's not a typical low IQ boxer, he's a smart man.

    If he's not ready he'd either not agree or the fight will be called off or further postponed.

    If Usyk thinks he's ready, then he's ready.

    Well, if Fury is waiting for the winner of this one, this likely means Fury is done for the year.
