    Same for Fury, isn't it ? Usyk is just a middleweight, right? He is 19 months older, and Fury has 19 cm reach advantage, 16cm. height advantage, and 40-50 lbs. advantage. Oh and let's not forget Usyk "lost" to Dubois via "body" shot, right?
    Where that leave Fury if he loses ? And why would then anyone gives Fury credits, h?

    I can picture John Fury head butting Meryl Streep at the Oscars when Tyson and Kevin Spacey are competing for top honors.

    What evidence is there for that? This is one of those half-cooked ideas that's thrown around so much that, over time, nobody questions it and just accepts it as consensus. Much like the notion that Fury is the number one heavyweight in the world. Based on what, exactly? Usyk took a knee over a decade ago when Beterbiev landed a clean body punch on him. So? Show me anyone in boxing history who wouldn't go down from a Beterbiev body shot. If anything, it was quite impressive how Usyk instantly stood up after touching the canvas with his knee. And then Dubois dropped him with an illegal bladder punch. That's it, that's the full body of evidence (pun intended). There's nothing else in Usyk's resume that remotely suggests he is more vulnerable to body shots than others. He was never in trouble against massive punchers like Briedis, Gassiev, or Joshua. Joshua alone landed some 50 clean body shots in their two fights. It didn't really do anything, did it? So where does this 'Usyk has a glass body' idea come from? I've asked many boxing fans before, but nobody has been able to answer it yet.
