Earlier this month it was announced that Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk have both signed a deal to fight each other in the first undisputed heavyweight title fight for over twenty years and since then the predictions have been rolling in with Riddick Bowe the latest to have his say.
In order for the much-anticipated clash to go ahead, WBC champion Fury must first see off the challenge of former MMA heavyweight turned boxing novice king Francis Ngannou. The bout takes place this weekend in Riyadh and is a 10-round contest that many think will be hugely one-sided.
It is strongly rumoured that the exact date and location for Fury’s fight with Usyk will then be announced in the ring afterward and recent comments made by Fury himself seem to confirm that.
Speaking to ESNEWS, former WBA, WBC and IBF world heavyweight champion Bowe was asked how he saw the fight going.
He is someone who, like Fury will have to do with Usyk, has experience of beating a cruiserweight coming up to heavyweight having bested Evander Holyfield back in November 1992 to lift three of the world titles.
“Fury. He has more experience, he knows how to deal with the pressure. I think Fury has more experience so I’ll go with him.”
This heavyweight mega-fight might not be the only one on the cards come December because although negotiations for a fight between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder seemed to have stalled in recent weeks, Joshua has hinted that their clash could be back on again and might even be made for the undercard of this historic undisputed match up.
