Usyk is on another level to the kind of opposition that Fury’s management has actually been putting him in with for the last 9 years, and it’s a significant upgrade for an aging fighter with a vulnerable mandible from his wars.

Usyk’s Accuracy and Fury’s Vulnerability

  • Fury’s history of being injured by challengers listed below Usyk’s level.
  • The damage Fury drew from 3 battles with Deontay Wilder.

Fury’s punch resistance is the problem in this fight. As Bellew explains, Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) has actually been injured by lower fighters than Usyk, which’s going to be an issue for him increasing against a really first-rate fighter with determine precision.

The damage that Fury sustained from his 3 battles against Deontay Wilder, which saw him down on the canvas consistently and even knocked unconscious, might make him susceptible against the bulked-up southpaw Usyk.

Fury’s Weight Loss

  • The Gypsy King’s abrupt weight-loss: It’s clear that Fury has actually lost a great deal of weight for this fight with his back-to-back training school, which won’t assist his capability to take the tough shots from Usyk. That weight-loss after years of being obese might take its toll on him.
  • Being out of shape for a very long time:  An professional athlete who is accustomed to being chunky suddenly requirements to bite down tough to prepare yourself for competitors that they haven’t had in a years. It doesn’t look great for Fury.

In this fight, Fury will likely get strike more than he ever has in his profession, which’s not a good idea for a fighter who has as lots of miles on the odometer as he has.

Bellew feels that IBF/WBA/WBO champ Usyk (21-0 14 KOs) is simply too great for Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs), and will win a choice. He feels that as long as there’s no debate, Usyk will be triumphant on Saturday night in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Prediction: Usyk by Decision

“As long as there’s no debate from authorities, this is Usyk’s fight on points,” stated Bellew.
