According to Usyk’s promoter, Wilder looked’really bad’ after gaining weight, and Fury can’t do ‘something severe’ to him.
Deontay Wilder’s promoter, OLEKSANDR USYK, stated the fighter looked “very horrible” following his enormous weight gain.
And neither Wilder nor Fury could ‘do anything significant’ to Usyk, who dethroned Anthony Joshua lately.
After gaining the right to his contracted trilogy match with Fury, who was in talks with Joshua, Wilder set up the Ukrainian with his shot at AJ.
After single-handedly averting the Battle of Britain, he was given another chance to redeem himself against the Gypsy King, who had defeated him the previous year.
Wilder gained weight to a career-high 17STONE, but was knocked out in round 11 by Fury.
Alexander Krassyuk, Usyk’s promoter, slammed the choice to bulk up, claiming that not even Fury has what it takes to beat his guy.
“Well, Fury won, and he deserved to win,” Krassyuk told SunSport.
“The first thing I didn’t like about Wilder was his physique. He gained weight, which made him appear unattractive.

He looked terrible, truly terrible, because he couldn’t make it with his physique, he hadn’t gotten used to the extra weight, and he didn’t feel well.
“He was done in the fourth round and survived the rest of the battle till near the end.”
“However, despite the added weight on his physique, Fury appeared to be in greater shape, with better motions and conditioning.
“However, I didn’t like the manner he won since, let’s say, Wilder was ‘dead’ after the fourth round, and it took Fury more than six rounds to finish the fight, so he didn’t try to box but rather knock him out, seriously injuring him.”
“It wasn’t a boxing contest at all.” Returning to Usyk, both Wilder and Fury, in the shape they were in during the fight, are a delectable dessert for Usyk because neither of them boxed well.
“I don’t think either Fury or Wilder can do anything severe to Usyk if he demonstrates his technique, his kind of technique.”
Fury, 33, knocked out Wilder, 35, in the third round, but had to fight back from being knocked out twice in the next round.
He recovered control in round 10, scoring another knockdown before bringing the exhibition to a close with a round to spare.
Usyk had outclassed AJ over 12 rounds just two weeks prior in a different battle and performance to take the unified championships home.
