Deontay Wilder has made his prediction for Tyson Fury versus Oleksandr Usyk.
Seemingly out of nowhere it was announced on Friday that Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk would collide in a huge undisputed heavyweight contest in either late December or January 2024.
Fury still has the small matter of the former UFC heavyweight champion, Francis Ngannou, to deal with on October 28th but if that goes to plan Usyk will be next.
One man who knows exactly what it is like to face Tyson Fury is the former WBC champion Deontay Wilder who had an epic trilogy of fights against the ‘Gypsy King’.
And In a resurfaced clip on social media , Wilder told FightHype that Fury’s size will be too much for Oleksandr Usyk.
“Fury’s size is what makes him gain more success. When I see him against Usyk I see how they cheated Cunningham with that clubbing, putting his weight on him and clubbing him, and I could see him doing the same thing with Usyk, putting his weight on him.
I do think Usyk has more skill, but when it comes to the size and stuff I don’t think he’ll be able to compete with the size of Fury. But who know’s that’s just my opinion.”
