Former World Champion Johnny Nelson made a prediction for the fight between WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) and WBA, WBO and IBF belt holder Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs).
“I think Fury will prove his heavyweight dominance by beating Usyk. I really think so. Usyk is an outstanding fighter, but Tyson Fury answered all the questions and proved everything he could in boxing. I think that’s a great prospect for heavyweight next year.
Usyk is not a big born heavyweight. After the last fight, he talked about returning to the first heavyweight, as it is difficult for him to keep the weight. I saw him recently and he didn’t look great.
Now is the perfect time for the Usyk-Fury fight. It should take place in the first quarter. There is already a potential date. There is no reason why they shouldn’t fight each other next,” Nelson said.
The fight should take place in February or March.
