Popular Russian boxing commentator Vladimir Gendlin believes that former undisputed world heavyweight champion Alexander Usyk will have a chance against Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua or Deontay Wilder. At the same time, he states that it will be difficult for a Ukrainian to outplay larger fighters who know how to box.
“We need to remember the American proverb: you cannot teach an old dog new tricks. We must be aware that we will not see anything new from Usyk. What he does, Alexander always does. Sometime better, sometime worse. For example, with The fight was very good with Briedis because there were two techies.
Chances in a fight with Fury, Joshua and Wilder? A good fighter, a technical boxer, all the more so with his psyche, always has a chance. The question is different. He has never met the hard hitting, tall guys. I think that he will not let himself be hit, but at the same time it will be very difficult to take something away from a dangerous guy in the round, if he is a good fighter, “- Vladimir Gendlin said in an interview with the USACHEV TV YouTube channel.
We will remind, Gendlin also expressed the opinion that Usyk will not become a superstar.
