Wilder says Fury “Cheated” Cunningham and will do the same against Usyk


Deontay Wilder had his say on an undisputed potential fight between his former rival, Tyson Fury, and the Ukrainian champion, Oleksandr Usyk.

There is no love lost between Fury and Wilder, especially on Wilder’s side. He has long been adamant that the ‘King of Gypsy’ tricked him into beating him in their second battle, despite the lack of evidence and often absurd accusations.

Having said that, the ‘Bronze Bomber’ imagines Fury going to win the smaller in Usyk. Speaking to FightHype.com, he shared what could have happened. While that’s technically a compliment to Fury, he still manages to get a rule-breaking allegation in there.

“When you compare things, Fury’s size is what makes him, I think, achieve more success and things like that.

When I saw him and Usyk…I saw how they cheated [Steve] Cunningham with that club. He puts his weight on him and then he grabs him and his club. I can see him doing the same thing with Usyk – putting his weight on him and stuff like that

I think Usyk has more skills, but when it comes to size… I don’t think Usyk will be able to compete in terms of size, suspension and stuff.

But who knows? That’s just my opinion on things, but this is boxing. In boxing, style makes up fights and different things can happen in them. If they fight, the best man can win and I wish them nothing but the best. “

Fury fought Steve Cunningham in 2013. Brit was eliminated in that fight, and it has been cited that Cunningham’s style is a tough test. After the knockdown, ‘King Gypsy’ won by knockout in round 7.

Wilder draws parallels with the fight being interesting on two levels. First, as he pointed out, Fury can use his weight to an advantage against Usyk. But, second, and perhaps more intriguing, is that it could indicate that Usyk is going to be a tough night for ‘The Gypsy King’.

If the war is made, Weight and game plan will certainly be a major talking point in taking the lead.
