Tyson Fury ‘not sure’ Anthony Joshua can beat Oleksandr Usyk

Tyson Fury ‘not sure’ Anthony Joshua can beat Oleksandr Usyk
  • Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua, now two mandatory challengers stand in the way of truly making it happen.
  • Deontay Wilder will challenge Tyson Fury on July 24 in their third and likely final encounter.
  • Oleksandr Usyk is at the head of that queue and it looks like he will get a shot at Joshua in September.

Fury thinks Joshua has given himself a problem taking on Usyk.

“Now they’re left with Joshua stuck between a rock and a hard place,” said Tyson Fury to the Daily Mail about Hearn and Matchroom choosing to take the Usyk fight.

“I don’t think they [Matchroom] fancy the Ukrainian guy [Oleksandr Usyk] for the fight he needs in August. And with their DAZN deal, it looks now as if that will be their last fight with Joshua.

“Usyk is a southpaw, clever, technically very good. He’s smaller as a former cruiserweight champion but he handled Derek Chisora, who is physically tougher than Joshua.

“So while I’m absolutely confident of beating Wilder, I’m not so sure about AJ not losing his fight.”

Usyk crushed Dereck Chisora last year through consistent choice and keeping in mind that Fury is correct that he adapted to Chisora after some early battles, Chisora isn’t pretty much as large as AJ, by the same token.
