Tyson fury assured that none of the top 15 boxers in heavyweights is scared by what he showed Oleksandr Usyk against Dereck Chisora.
“Did we see the best of Usyk? I’m not sure, ”he said Fury in interview for talkSPORT. “Did we see the best of Usyk in heavy weight? I don’t know, but I can say that, for that performance (against Chisora), none of the top 15 heavyweights sweat for Oleksandr Usyk at this time, unfortunately. “
The WBC heavyweight world champion is not at all impressed with what the Ukrainian showed in his second fight in the top flight, after winning it all on cruises.
“None of us tremble, do we?” Asked the Brit rhetorically. “Everybody is wondering, ‘Is that what all the hype was about?'”
Tyson fury also questioned the physique of Usyk, whom he considers small for the category.
“This is the heavyweight game, and it’s not like what it was years ago. Usyk it is probably the smallest heavy there is, “he said. Gypsy king, under his critical remarks. “In brutal honesty, I think when I fight a great heavyweight that can hit even a little bit, it will be like a lamb to the slaughter.”
Fury’s conclusions, little encouraging for Usyk
According to the champion of World Boxing Council, there is a conceptual error in believing that it is simple to cross the 200 pound barrier.
“My take on this is: this is the heavyweight division, and not the cruiserweight division for some reason,” the 32-year-old said. “All the cruisers who do well want to get up to heavyweight for more money. Everyone wants a piece of the cake, but for something they are different divisions ”.
“After his last performance, I honestly thought it was better than what he showed, because I rated him at Usyk as a technical master in cruiserweight ”, remarked the monarch CMB. “But at heavyweight, there was nothing that impressed me about him, to be honest.”
