Fury’s resume is pretty weak, but that’s not entirely his fault. The heavyweight division was pretty stagnant until recently.Maybe, but I'd have to see it. Fury has two good wins in his entire career. A close, clever win over Klitschko (still a great win). And then a win over Wilder, on the weekend, who's he'd already beaten twice and knocked out in a few rounds the last time they fought.
Look, I'm not saying that Fury loses to Usyk or Joshua, but styles make fights. How often do we see Fury fight slick boxers? Or guys with better feet than him?
As far as Usyk, like Fury, he’s a special talent and an anomaly. How many HW southpaws have the kind of movement, ring IQ, and stamina he does?
The guy is like a HW Lomachenko.
Usyk is a mid-range fighter. Tactically, I can see Fury use his size advantages to bully Usyk on the inside. Fury would need to be sharper than he was in this fight though.
Fury boxing him like Joshua did at mid-range would be stupid.
