Re: Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury? Oleksandr Usyk wants them both
I think the Del Boy fight is a good one. People don't want to say it but Del Boy is up there hovering around the fringe of top 15-20 heavies. His form over the last couple of years is decent. The loss against Whyte obviously but Whyte is firmly top 5 with everyone and Del gave him all the trouble he could handle over the course of two fights, might have got the nod in the first. Before that the good win against Takam, the clobbering of Szpilka and Price. It's a decent run.
Where Chisora struggles is when they move. Anything side to side and he's fucked. Kabayel employed minimal lateral movement and Chisora spent the whole night wandering around after him. it was one of those weird nights in Monte Carlo where there isn't much noise, Chisora didn't have his full team with him. Maybe if it was a packed O2 full of venom he might have got after Kabayel a bit more but who knows.
Usyk wont be standing still for Chisora to whack away at him like Price or Szpilka did. He'll be Kabayel X2 and Chisora will struggle to get a glove on him. Even when (because he's definitely mad) Usyk decides he wants to stand and fight, he can do it. Showed it against Joyce in the WBS. He made that weird fuck you kind of face and stood and fought with Joyce as and when it suited him and came off the better pretty much every time.
Joshua and Fury will be a different kettle of fish. Fury more so because he will fully utilise his height and reach. He'll box Usyk. Joshua will fight him more and give more opportunities to Usyk. I don't buy into this basic idea that Usyk is too small for those two for the same reason Alpha gave. He's already proven it isn't the case and can compete with and beat bigger men.
When God said to the both of us "Which one of you wants to be Sugar Ray?" I guess I didnt raise my hand fast enough
