Tim Tszyu chooses Oleksandr Usyk to beat Tyson Fury


Via Charles Brun: Tim Tszyu is picking Oleksandr Usyk to beat Tyson Fury in their undisputed heavyweight championship early next year.

Tszyu said IBF, WBA & WBC champion Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) has a “style” that makes it difficult for anyone, especially the 6’9″ tall Fury, whose bout has become completely predictable.

With Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) a 34-year-old looking VERY old, he was noticeably slowed down, and now his fighting style involves him throwing single punches, then fell forward to cling and lean with all his weight on his opponent to knock them down.

It sucks to watch, especially when you remember how Fury used to fight when he was younger. The years have not been kind to Fury.

It’s like a simple recipe that Fury uses over and over without any variation. I hate to say it, but the only variation Fury has in his punch and grab style is punch rabbit that he adds a little spice.

“What do you know? I’m also choosing Usyk in a bad moment. His style gets a lot of people in trouble and the bigger guy doesn’t always win,” Tim Tszyu told. NEWSpick IBF, WBA & WBC heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk to beat the taller and heavier WBC champion Tyson Fury.

“He proved it so many times,” Tszyu said of the undefeated Usyk. “He has the skills to beat anyone. He fought everywhere, he fought in Russia. He is a monster. He’s slick,” Tszyu said of Fury.

UnfortunatelyUsyk isn’t just worried about leaning over against Fury. It’s the rabbit punch and hold and hit. If Usyk can’t figure out how to counter the rabbit shots, it doesn’t matter if he avoids Fury’s lean.

You go back and watch the textbook bunny shots Fury disabled Deontay Wilder in their second fight, it’s clear he never had a chance.

In order for Wilder to have a chance of winning that bout, he needed to get in the mud with Fury and shoot back with rabbit shots from the start.

In order for Usyk to beat Fury, he would need to move for 12 rounds because Tyson’s massive grizzly-like size would weaken him quickly when leaning over. If leaning doesn’t affect Usyk, then punches behind the head are bound to happen.
