John Fury – about the fight between Usyk and Witherspoon: “If Chisora ​​had fought with Alexander then, Derek would have beat him”


John Fury, the father of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, said he was not impressed by Alexander Usik’s debut heavyweight fight, in which a Ukrainian stopped American Chazz Witherspoon in seven rounds. According to Fury Sr., if Derek Chisora ​​had been in Witherspoon’s place that evening, Usyk would have lost.

“Usyk is a top-class boxer and he can move. As I said, we don’t know how he will play against a worthy heavyweight.”

In the fight with Chazz Witherspoon, I didn’t like the Usyk. If Chisora ​​had fought him then, Derek would have beat him. But I think that Usyk has a wider arsenal. I predict that Usyk will win on points, but Derek will be trying all evening to get the victory, “- said John Fury in an interview with Boxing Social YouTube channel.

We will remind, Fury Sr. also assessed Usyk’s chances in the fight with Tyson.
