Oleksandr Usyk has revealed whether he believes Tyson Fury will prove himself against a tougher opponent than compatriot Anthony Joshua.
Usyk Wins Straight Against ‘AJ’ To Become Unified Heavyweight Champion Of The Worldand has been closely linked to an undisputed clash with Fury in recent months.
When asked by Gary Neville on duplication If he thinks Fury will be a tougher fight than Joshua, Usyk admits that he thinks ‘King of Gypsy’ will prove to be a tougher test than ever.
“Yes of course. He has a different style. Fury is bolder.”
Fury vs Usyk is considered one of the best fights in the sport and the winner will be the world’s first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis.
However, fans are increasingly concerned that the historic clash may not happen as the touted date of April 29 draws closer and closer.
The tone of promoter Frank Warren when talking about the war seems to have changed, and stated in a recent interview that he cannot force men into the ring with one and the other.
Wembley Stadium is believed to be the site of the bout, where Fury broke Britain’s all-time boxing record last May with a knockout win over Dillian Whyte.

If a date to determine the estate with the Ukrainians fails, the likes of Andy Ruiz Jr, Deontay Wilder and even former UFC champion Francis Ngannou are all rumored options for Fury.
