After Tyson Fury defeated Deontay Wilder in their epic trilogy bout last weekend, the promoter of Oleksandr Usyk – who dominated Anthony Joshua last month – believes the Ukrainian would easily defeat the Gypsy King if they were to fight.
Oleksand Usyk’s promoter believes Tyson Fury provides no threat to the Ukrainian despite his exhilerating win over Deontay Wilder on Saturday night. Fury defeated Wilder to retain his WBC title at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The highly-anticipated third bout between the pair lived up to the billing and will go down as one of the great heavyweight fights in modern boxing history.
Fury was in the driving seat early, particularly after he knocked Wilder down in round three.
Wilder – who reportedly broke his hand in the loss – impressively struck back in round four as he knocked Fury twice to the canvas, critically striking the Brit when he was struggling to stand.
However, the Gypsy King got to his feet and responded excellently to seize control of the fight in the latter rounds.
His dominance ensured that it was his fight to lose and after Wilder picked himself up from a 10th-round knockdown, Fury delivered the killer blow with a crushing 11th round knockout strike.
Usyk himself picked up the biggest win of his professional career when he defeated and dethroned Anthony Joshua at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to win the WBA, WBO and IBF titles.
Usyk became the third fighter after Evander Holyfield and David Haye to win world titles in both the cruiserweight and heavyweight division – and his promoter Alexander Krassyuk believes the Ukrainian would ease past Fury and Wilder.
“Wilder and Fury, in the shape they performed in the fight are a sweet dessert for Usyk because none of them performed with boxing skills,” Krassyuk told the Sun.
“If Usyk shows his technique, his style of technique, I don’t think either Fury or Wilder can do anything serious to Usyk.”
Usyk stunned Joshua on a number of occasions as he was simply too fast – and too good – for the 31-year-old, landing a number of impressing hits to win unanimously on points.
Both Fury and Wilder were the heaviest they’ve ever been for their fight, with the Bronze Bomber bulking up to 17 stone – and Krassyuk criticised the American’s performance.
