Via Scott Gilfoid: Deontay Wilder’s trainer, Malik Scott, believes this version of Tyson Fury, “vulnerable” turned into mauler, will lose to Oleksandr Usyk.
According to Malik, the swing that WBC heavyweight champion Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) has trained by Sugarhill Steward-trained Kronk Gym is PERFECT for the IBF/WBA/WBO system Usyk uses .
Interestingly, Malik says that Fury’s old fighting style is against Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 and Wilder in their first game in 2018 will be more of a problem for Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs).
Usyk will learn Fury with the way he fights now and the royals put him to shame.
The way Fury fights now is like a grizzly bear locking horns with another of its kind, and that won’t work with Usyk studied well, who came from the Soviet system.
You can’t use the primitive fighting style Fury is using against a talent like Usyk without being disqualified.
Fury needs to get back to his 2015 form
Unfortunately for Fury, 33, he’s packed with over 30 lbs of fat from the skinny 247-lb a superior version of then-39-year-old Wladimir in 2015, and it is doubtful that he can return to that slim version of himself.
In Fury’s last two fights against Deontay, he had a chubby look 277 and 273 lbs and looking slow, easy to hit, and nowhere near the boxer, he was against Wladimir or even in his first fight with Wilder.
Surprisingly, Sugarhill gets a lot of credit for making Fury grow up and turn into an ugly vampire, but Gilfoid doesn’t think he’s improved an iota.
I don’t know who planted in Fury’s head the idea that he’s improved over the past two years under Sugarhill’s watch, but he hasn’t. Fury is getting hit a lot right now, and it’s only a matter of time before he gets knocked out.
Fury will beat Wilder even easier in his final two fights if he holds the light and fights the way he did against Klitschko in 2015.
John Fury should be in hand after watching Tyson’s damage in his final fight against Deontay. He was knocked out by Wilder in the fourth round but is said to have been long count to comeback.
Fury was knocked down twice in his first fight with Deontay because he was lazy and stood in front of him.
If Fury kept moving like he did with Klitschko, he would knock Wilder out completely in their first fight, and he would never lay hands on him.
Tyson needs DUMP Sugarhill Steward
Deontay is NOT the kind of fighter you want to fight. Fury came through hard in his first and third fights against the powerful American KO artist.
If Fury returns to his old form, he has to stop eating, get a dietitian to recommend a good diet, and DUMP Sugarhill. That’s right, ditch Sugarhill and find another trainer that doesn’t emphasize sliding and movement.
Usyk defeats this famous version of Fury
Malik Scott told ESNEWS: “I believe the rage that went against Wladimir Klitschko gives Usyk all kinds of fights. “Movement, reflection. This fury now, Usyk will defeat.
“I believe that the heavier Tyson Fury is coming, want to take a chance and give weight to people, I think it is a perfect system for Usyk to work because his feet are fast, he turns corners, he doesn’t make silent deals inside, he’s a good counter-counter puncher and his punches are a bit more accurate.
“They come with more wounds than they look,” Malik said of Usyk’s punches. “He has the power to sneak inside the ring.
“So if I were to bet on that, I would bet that Usyk would beat Tyson Fury, especially this Tyson Fury because of this. Tyson Fury is much more vulnerable and easier to hit than any previous Tyson Fury,” Malik said.
Oh yeah, it would have been a complete child’s play when Usyk chose to split the Stonehenge that Fury was turned into by trainer Sugarhill.
Usyk will puzzle Fury to pieces with his precise left hands and make him look bad at night.
Fury has been downhill since the first Deontay
“Tyson Fury fought Deontay Wilder the first time, for me. That’s the pain in **Tyson Fury,” Scott continued.
“Tyson Fury fought Wladimir Klitschko, that Tyson Fury is extremely hard to beat. Which is now more opportunistic and entertaining.
“But if we are talking about style and matches in matches, then that style with Usyk, Usyk wins.
“When fighting Usyk, you’re fighting someone whose whole system is around decoys and birds of prey, good footwork, and a conch.
Scott talks about Usyk. “He was fighting AJ, and it wasn’t like he was boxing and moving around and trying to [avoid him].
“Sometimes he comes forward and takes chances. This is not someone who is indecisive to get the win. He never runs.
“He was fighting big boxers, and he wasn’t running. It’s not like he’s flying. He’s giving these people a chance, and then he’s making them pay,” Malik said.
I don’t want to say it, but Tyson Fury has been downhill since his first fight with Wilder in 2018.
When you look back at his feet, how light Fury was in his first bout with Deontay 6’7″ and compare that to the stationary monolith that Sugarhill transformed him into in, it’s painfully clear that the 6’9″ Gypsy King has gotten worse, not better, under Stewart as his trainer.
If Fury made sense, he’d wake up and beat Sugarhill before it’s too late and go back to Ben Davison to lose weight and be the tough fighter he used to be.
Wilder can drop bombs on Usyk
“Do you want to know something else? I believe Usyk’s style is a great fit for Deontay to bomb in,” Malik said. “In 12 rounds, I have never seen Usyk get hit by anyone with Wilder powers.
“He was hit by Murat [gassiev], and he’s a very, very good fighter. His problem was Usyk that night,” Scott said.
There’s no doubt that Wilder will hurl his right-hand bazooka into Usyk’s chin at some point in a fight, and that could end for the talented Ukrainian once that happens.
Anthony Joshua doesn’t have the strength to hurt Usyk, and he can only fight hard for a few rounds before letting off some steam. Joshua is not going to fight hard with Usyk because he knows he will exhale and stop.
In contrast, Wilder will be making his right-handed swings against Usyk for 12 complete innings, and he’ll be deadly until the last second begins in their fight.
Wilder doesn’t lose strength the way Joshua does, which is why he would be a nightmare for Usyk in combat.
