Oleksandr Usyk Believes He’ll See A Different Tyson Fury On May 18

Oleksandr Usyk

Oleksandr Usyk expects Tyson Fury will look and perform much differently than he did against Francis Ngannou.

Usyk and Fury are set to box on May 18 in an intriguing matchup and one that many fans are looking forward to. Fury enters the fight coming off a split decision win over Francis Ngannou in a lackluster performance, but Usyk is expecting a much better version here.

“No, I’m not thinking about this [the fight not happening],” Usyk said to SecondsOut. “I don’t because I think the fight will [happen]. My focus is my training. My focus is my family. My focus is my team. I’ve not used Instagram never, now. Now it’s bad for me. It’s a waste of time. I read my books, I speak with my family…. My focus is my camp. I don’t read the news, I don’t watch the world news, I’m only here. It’s my preparation. My focus is only May 18, only Ring of Fire [the name of the show]…

“Tyson Fury will be different with my fight because it’s my opinion Tyson Fury, when boxing with Francis Ngannou, maybe [he was thinking] it’s a UFC guy, blah, blah, blah,” Usyk said. “’I win, it’s an easy fight.’ It’s my opinion. I don’t know. Maybe it’s true, maybe not, but I know that Tyson Fury will be different with me.”

Ultimately, Oleksandr Usyk is confident he will defeat Tyson Fury and doesn’t rule a knockout victory coming either.

“If I can do a KO, I will, if I can do 12 rounds, I do 12 rounds. My goal is to win. How it will be, it’s God’s will,” Usyk said.

Usyk enters his fight with a 21-0 record and coming off a KO win over Daniel Dubois.
