In addition to being an absolute legend in boxing, Mike Tyson is famous as a great connoisseur of fights. Zheleznia is rarely wrong in his predictions, and his words are eagerly awaited by millions of fans.
Tyson did not miss to share his view on the highly anticipated super match between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk on February 17th.
The meeting in Riyadh will determine the absolute heavyweight champion of the world for the first time in almost 2 decades.
Some time ago, Mike Tyson predicted that Fury would have a hard time with Francis Ngannou, and he guessed. Now the legend has offered to bet on a knockout victory for Fury in the fight with the Ukrainian.
“I’m looking forward to this fight because it’s a historic event. However, in this case I have to bet on Tyson Fury because I believe he will push Usyk hard. I think the weight difference will be decisive. Of course, it can and to be wrong, but that’s how I feel.
Smaller opponents are difficult to fight because they are hard to hit. They are smaller, they can run more, they can move better and this is the tactic that Usyk will bet on again.
I think Fury will need a few rounds to adjust to his opponent’s rhythm. He’ll probably lose on points, but then he’ll find room for that shot of his. It’s going to be very tough, but I expect him to win by knockout,” Mike predicted to Fight Hub TV.
