Fury vs. Usyk is the biggest heavyweight fight in years

As many are predicting the fight, the UFC superstar is struggling to decide who will become the first-ever undisputed four-belt heavyweight champion this weekend.

However, he sees a huge advantage for Fury against Usyk.

“Usyk is a slick, crafty boxer,” McGregor said when asked by the BBC for his “Ring of Fire” prediction.

“If anyone can do it, maybe Usyk can do it.

“Tyson is also a slick boxer. Plus, he has the size.

“Tyson is a tough man to beat in the boxing arena.”

Standing at 6 feet 9 inches tall, Fury is one of the tallest heavyweights in boxing history.

The 35-year-old typically weighs between 260 and 270 pounds for his fights, but has slimmed down considerably since failing to impress against Francis Ngannou last October.

What is an undisputed world champion?

In boxing, an undisputed world champion is someone who wins all four major world title belts in their division – WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO.

Fury currently owns the WBC while Usyk holds the WBA, IBF and WBO. Therefore, the winner will hold all four belts as the undisputed king.

The last man to hold all the belts in the division was Lennox Lewis when he defeated Evander Holyfield to add his WBA and IBF titles to the WBC belt before what is now known as the “four belt era” , the WBO being recognized from 2004. .

John Fury recently suggested his superstar son would be at a career-low weight for his fight with Usyk, less than the 245.5 pounds he weighed against Vinny Maddalone in 2012.

No matter what happens, he will always be much bigger than Usyk when they face each other.

The 6-foot-3 Ukrainian was a heavyweight before moving up a division and beating Anthony Joshua twice to capture three of four major heavyweight titles.

Usyk has never weighed more than 221.5 pounds during his boxing career.

McGregor would usually be sitting in the front row for a fight like this, but he’s unlikely to make the trip for Fury vs. Usyk.

The former UFC double-weight champion will have his first fight in almost three years when he takes on Michael Chandler on June 29.

Tickets to UFC 303 have already earned Dana White $20 million and broken an eight-year record – it’s clear fans are excited for the return of MMA’s biggest star.

“Mystic Mac” predicts he will experience the greatest comeback ever and has worked hard to make sure his premonition comes true.

McGregor will take a brief break from training to watch Fury fight Usyk before returning to the gym and continuing preparations for Chandler.
