Despite the Ukrainian’s AJ masterclass, Tyson Fury will batter Oleksandr Usyk in an undisputed bout, according to a shocking fan vote.
TYSON FURY has beaten Oleksandr Usyk in a shocking poll, with the Gypsy King receiving overwhelming support.
In late September, Ukrainian Usyk overpowered Anthony Joshua, displaying every ounce of his brilliant southpaw style.
And in his trilogy match with Deontay Wilder, which he won by knockout in round 11, Fury put on a similarly amazing performance.
Between the two unbeaten heavyweight champions, a discussion has erupted as to who would win.
There is no doubt, according to SunSport readers, with 91.1 percent in favor of Fury.
Given the quality of Usyk’s victory over AJ, the measly 8.9% backing him is startling.
However, Fury’s ability to come off the canvas twice in a single round to subsequently KO Wilder demonstrates why he is the division’s No. 1 contender.
Despite the overwhelming majority, the wait for an indisputable king will continue.

Joshua, 31, has requested a quick rematch with Usyk, 34, which means Fury, 33, will face the winner of the fight between Dillian Whyte, 33, and Otto Wallin, 30.
But his father, John, pushed him to quit if he couldn’t unite with Usyk, thinking that challengers such as Whyte wouldn’t be able to drive him.
“Would Dillian Whyte deal with Deontay Wilder?” John, 57, asked on talkSPORT. No.
“So what makes you think I’d want to throw him in there with my son and knock him out?”
He was knocked out by a 42-year-old [Alexander Povetkin] at the end of the day.
“Tyson can’t get up for battles like that.” Because his game isn’t big enough, he won’t be able to improve it.
“And he enters with a drab demeanor, and you don’t see the best of Tyson Fury.” Tyson is at his best when he’s up against the best.
“He’s up against a tough task, and he’s fighting back. “‘Usyk or don’t bother,’ I’ve told him.”
