Usyk's Career Path

Discussion in 'World Boxing Forum' started by catchwtboxing, Jul 31, 2020.


Is this an accurate career map?

  1. OP is a soothsayer. He has seen the future. Exactly right.

  2. Not right on specifics but probably very close on substance.

  3. 50/50...don't know...who can say...could go a lot of ways...etc.

  4. mostly wrong. OP is making assumptions about getting big fights, winning fights, and longevity

  5. OP is a jackass and/or on drugs.

    I believe he will fight AJ at some point just not in the next 18 months.

    This puny Usyk will be squatted by a fat behemoth before he ever gets in position for a title shot. All gonna end in tears against Chisora.

    Nice breakdown. However, I would change 5 to “fighting Fury or Joshua for all the marbles” and then retirement. That’s what I hope at least.

    I went for 'OP is a jackass and/or on drugs', mainly because it was funny. But I don't think the OP is too far fetched, although catchweight does seem to have a fascination with people coming out of retirement. Haye would never fight Usyk.

    Usyk schools Chisora IMO, the only way he loses is if he's a Gomez/Hatton-esque fighter who embodies being the 'perfect fit' for his weight. Although Usyk weights 210-215 on fight night for his CW fights, so I doubt the weight jump is that bad.

    Picking up the WBO does seem pretty likely. Who would it be against? Parker? I think that's a pretty good fight.

    Haye/Ward? **** no. If he's selling out it's it's to the highest bidder. And that's the winner of Fury/Joshua, and it's in either Wembley, Old Trafford or MGM/MSG. Usyk probably loses this fight, unless something happens where the winner of that fight steeply declines, or fights like a bellend. I can see him beating Joshua. Not Fury.

    First defences vs Wilder is probably a no go. There'll be no need, and all things considered it's a pretty dangerous fight. I'd say Ruiz is a bit more likely. Although I think Hunter might want revenge, which could be a good fight. Whyte gets his first title shot in 2024?

    He's 33. It could happen like you see it. Dereck Chisora will be thoroughly outclassed. I definitely don't think Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury will go out of their way to compete against him.

    I have no idea how i

    Usyk is taller than Chisora.
    He will dance circles around the gatekeeper.
