Dominic Ingle has weighed in on a potential clash between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk next year, and believes Fury will simply prove to be too big for the Ukrainian to handle.
Ingle believes that despite Usyk’s undeniable technical prowess, Fury will be an obstacle too big to overcome.
Speaking to Boxing King Media, Ingle said:
“I know they had that face off on Saturday night and Usyk was licking lips, but I just don’t believe Usyk will beat Tyson Fury, because the best version of Tyson Fury will turn up for Usyk.”
“And no matter how technical or elusive Usyk is, eventually the biggest heavyweight of all time will close him down, tire him out and beat him. That’s my belief.”
Usyk was ringside to witness Fury’s tenth round stoppage win over Derek Chisora on Saturday night and stepped onto the canvas for an electric face off with ‘The Gypsy King’ in front of the baying London crowd.
Talks for an undisputed showdown between the pair are said to be progressing well, with a lucrative offer from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to host the fight reportedly on the table.
However, Fury revealed after his successful title defence against Chisora that he had been suffering with an elbow injury that might require surgery. Fans will be hoping it won’t cause any major delays to what would be the first undisputed heavyweight world title fight in almost two decades.
Joe Joyce also took to the ring for a face off with Fury at the weekend, and the WBC world champion said Joyce would be the man getting the call for an all British affair if a fight with Usyk could not be made.
