Dereck Chisora has given a somewhat unexpected insight to a potential undisputed clash between Tyson Fury and Oleskandr Uysk.
As the only man to have shared a ring with both, there are arguably none better in the sport better place than Chisora to break down a fight between Fury and Usyk.
In a recent interview with Talksport, Chisora said he envisages a good fight – due to both men’s lack of punching power.
“Both men don’t have power, so it’ll be a good fight.”
Fury has stopped Chisora on two occasions now, so he would almost certainly beg to differ with his former opponent’s evaluation.
Whilst Usyk was taken the distance by ‘War’ and may not be the heaviest puncher in the division, he has shown in the past he is capable of stopping fighters via output and accuracy, and came very close to becoming just the second man to stop Anthony Joshua when the pair first fought in 2021.
Fans felt a new wave of optimism last week that a fight between Fury and Usyk could happen, after the pair publicly agreed to a 70/30 split in favour of the Brit, provided he made a donation of £1 million to help the ongoing struggle in Ukraine.
However, the WBC world champion has since demanded that the two way contractual rematch clause be removed, which has cast fresh doubt over the possibility of the bout happening next.
Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, has assured fans the legacy defining fight will still go ahead.
If a fight between Fury and Usyk does materialise on April 29th, the winner will be the first undisputed heavyweight world champion of the four belt era.
