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.
    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
    As much as we would all like every fighter to fight the best all the time, I’m willing to give Usyk leeway for this fight if he really does think he gets AJ next. If he can’t though, I agree that he doesn’t get anymore excuses.

    I'm not up to date with the title situation, I thought if Joshua fights either Pulev or Usyk 1 of the titles would be vacated. There is also talk of Parker fighting in the UK in February, he was also involved in failed negotiations with Chisora over a lengthy period. So without all the information I can't accurately say where these guys are at and what is happening.

    Usyk will basically retire Chisora.

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

    Chisora will give him problems.
    Hang on, he’s only fought 1 heavyweight. He’s entitled to feel his way into a division with much bigger guys isn’t he? If he went straight into a title shot, everyone would be slagging him off saying he hasn’t earns the shot.
    I’m not sure if Usyk will make it at HW. But at least this fight will tell us one or two things.
    I don’t mind the fight, although I would’ve preferred Usyk fought Whyte.

    Holyfield had 7 fights at heavyweight before facing Buster for the title. Just saying like. It's a testament to Uysk he's not interested in fucking about, straight in the deep end

    Chisora is a handful for any heavyweight, he's almost certain to be there for 12 rounds and always winging.

    Uysk always starts slow. Everyone holds their own with him early doors as he gradually goes through the gears ramping it up. In the old days they would have said - "he likes to have a look." Anyone expecting him to be some exciting heavyweight killer are going to be disappointed. He's a savvy boxer not banger.

    I am of the opinion that Usyk needs to fight more at the new weight and earn his title fight. I think Chisora will be a good test. He needs to fight against fringe contenders and gain some experience of handling these heavier men.

    I do not see Usky ultimately beating AJ or Fury who are just too big for him but think he could handle Parker and Whyte.

    Parker is decent and it's a solid fight. Actually prefer the number 1 and 2 sorting it our rather than Usyk led in for AJ on a red carpet. I'd favor Usyk once he gets going and to look brilliant in the second half.

    If he does fight Parker, that’s a very solid fight to prove his ability at HW. I really hope it happens.

    Hearn saying that Usyk v Chisora is 99% a done deal.

    Usyk has injured elbow so likely to be delayed to May now - https://www.worldboxingnews.net/2020...k-chisora-ppv/

    It's a fair test for Usyk you'd expect him to come through.

    Gradual increase of opposition could go Chis, Parker, Whyte / Ortiz, Josh/Wilder/Fury

    Chisora made Agit Kabayel look like Muhammad Ali, so useless he is against boxers.

    Usyk would comfortably beat Chisora.
