Egis Klimasmanager of WBA, WBO, IBO and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs), explained why the Ukrainian would be an awkward opponent for WBC champion Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs).
“Of course, the absolute championship in heavyweight has always been the goal. No one believed that he could become an absolute cruiserweight, no one believed that he could even reach the heavyweight division. Look at what he’s doing, look at what he’s doing and how things are changing now.
Yes, Fury doesn’t know how to work with left-handed fighters. But he doesn’t know how to work with the little guys. Usik has both! He’s smaller than Fury and also left-handed, so we’ll see,” Klimas said.
The meeting will take place on February 17, 2024 in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia).
