Usyk Will Study Fury-Whyte Title Fight

He may be in training camp for his rematch with Anthony Joshua, but unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk will use Saturday’s fight between Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte as a good excuse to study.

The WBA, IBF and WBO title holder could face this weekend’s winner in an undisputed heavyweight title fight later in the year should he defeat Joshua for a second time. And Fury is the odds-on favourite to successfully defend his belt against Whyte at Wembley Stadium this weekend.

“Definitely yes [we will be watching the fight],” Alexander Krassyuk, Usyk’s promoter, told Sky Sports.

“Egis Klimas [Usyk’s manager] and myself plan to attend the event and watch it from ringside.

“At Usyk’s training camp, he will watch and study the fight on TV.”
