    Default Hearn has o2 on hold for usyk vs. Chisora for march 28

    Good test of Usyks chin if he fights Del Boy and a decent tune up for a possible AJ fight.

    Hearn heavily favours the Pulev fight for Josh next 😉

    Usyk will just float through a fight vs Del Boy who is WEEEEEELL past it. He knocks out David Price in his last fight, yes AAAAAND? Who couldn't at this point? Chisora won't test Usyk's chin, he'll only test his stamina and ability to handle a bit of banter in a presser.


    Usyk may even be able to stop Chisora...if he can't then I don't much like his chances to gain a belt.


    AJ vs Pulev? Well AJ has learned his lesson right? Should be an easy KO win for him....should be.

    Perfect fight for Usyk. Gradually getting into the HW Scene. Chisora will try to rough up Usyk and drag him into a brawl, throwing some big shots at close quarters. But in reality, Usyk should be able to deal with him how he wants.

    I’ve never been high on Chisora whosoever and he is even worse now, but I will agree that it will be a good learning experience to fight a HW who will be going at him and trying to make the fight ugly.

    I can’t blame Usyk for the fight though because he wanted AJ and can’t get him, so he has to fight whoever is available. And at least it’s a named fighter rather than some random guy nobody has heard of. The problem is that I’m afraid that they will set up a mega fight for AJ against the winner of Wilder and Fury. That means that Usyk will be on the outside again. If that does happen, hopefully he can make a fight with a legit contender.

    This fight is meaningless to Usyk other than keeping him active. That is a sparring session for him

    I mostly agree with Baal, although it does serve as a gauge of whether Usyk carries some power as a HW I guess. Be very surprised if Chisora asks many other questions of him, it's a good showcase fight.

    Bellew had alot of success against Usyk in the first few rounds when they fought.
    Usyk has yet to be in with a decent seasoned Heavyweight.
    Bellew found him pretty easy to hit too so i expect Del Boy to give him a real test.
    Let's see how he deals with a full blown Heavyweight.
    Good measuring stick this one.

    Bellew was on a 10 fight win streak heading into the Usyk fight. Look at the run Makabu has been on since the Bellew fight. That Bellew would have beaten Chisora.

    I have been a fan of Usyk's for awhile and have said often that he will have success at Heavyweight, but I feel he has stagnated a bit, with his injury delay and now possibly facing a shop worn Chisora, it all seems a little like treading water. His team should be forcing the mandatory and if Joshua declines, then Parker for the vacant title should be the target. Usyk has beat better heavies than Chisora in the WSB, he has already faced full blown Heavyweights.

    This will be a complete mis-match.

    Usyk has faced shit Heavyweights and hasn't looked impressive at all since winning the WBSS.

    Chisora will give him problems.

    I'd look forward to this one.

    Good match up if it comes off.

    This fight gets blown out of proportion. Usyk easily beat Bellew. He is generally a slow starter anyway and just slowly beat him down. Bellew is no pushover either so it’s not like Usyk struggled with some nobody. I think it was a calculated strategy. Let Bellew have a bit of success at the beginning to wear him out a bit and to figure him out then go for the kill.

    I will agree that he has stagnated a bit since his injury. I’m really hoping that this is his last tune up fight at HW because he can’t waste anymore time. He needs get in there before the giants start falling and he loses his opportunity.

    Yup, this matchup means they refused a Title fight because they didn’t want to fight Parker. Basically no risks before the Joshua payday, sad
