American promoter Lou DiBella believes that Ukrainian heavyweight Alexander Usyk will not be able to compete with the leaders of his division – Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua.
“Usyk is the best cruiser in the world and absolutely legitimate contender for the heavyweight title, but based on what I saw in the last fight, I will not pick him as my favorite against the two-meter heavy monsters weighing 120 kilograms.
When the opponent is not able to shake and press the Usyk, he is a very skilled fighter who can compete with anyone. But I can imagine how Tyson Fury fights with Usyk and turns out to be too strong for him. I don’t see Usyk competing against Fury at all. And I would consider him a pretty big underdog against Joshua, “Lou DiBella said in an interview with YouTube channel SecondsOut.
We will remind, DiBella also stated that if Derek Chisora successfully pressurized the Usyk, then the same will succeed Fury and Joshua.
