About what opinion has  famous American promoter Bob Arum regarding the outcome of the fight Usik vs. Fury, writes NBN, citing material from the profile portal Boxing News24.

According to the 92-year-old Arum, “The Gypsy King” caused him some degree of disappointment, particularly during the fight with Francis Ngannou. An experienced sports official believed that Tyson Fury is rightfully considered the favorite in this fight due to his accumulated skill and massive size. However, the uneven progress of the fight was surprising in the way Fury behaved in the fight with Ngannou – “he was terrible” for two reasons: “either he hasn’t trained, or he’s just getting old.” p>

Thus, the promoter actually admitted that the Briton will defeat the Ukrainian only if he is well prepared.

Arum summarized:

If Tyson comes out in his best form for the fight with Alexander, if we see that Fury who went into the fights with Wilder and White, then neither Usik nor any other “heavyweight” will will be able to defeat him.

Earlier, we wrote about the fact that Usik openly answered whether he is ready to hit Fury to achieve victory in the fight.
