Tyson Fury Names The Toughest Fight Available For Him, NOT Oleksandr Usyk


Tyson Fury Believes An Unbeaten British Heavyweight Is A Tougher Fight For Him Than Oleksandr Usyk

Tyson Fury scored a 10th-round TKO win over decade-long rival Derek Chisora to retain his WBC heavyweight championship and move to 33-0-1 (24 KOs) on Saturday night at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. Chisora suffered his thirteenth career defeat and his third one to Fury.

Fury told boxing media in the aftermath of the Chisora trilogy fight that he believes an undisputed clash with Ukraine’s 3-belt holder Oleksandr Usyk is not the toughest fight currently available for him. Fury instead looks towards unbeaten British heavyweight Joe Joyce for that challenge.

Eddie Hearn RIPS Into Bob Arum “Top Rank Are FINISHED, They’ve Given Up…Top W**k”

Tyson Fury “In my opinion, Usyk is the slicker boxer but Joe Joyce is the juggernaut. I think that Joe gives me a tougher fight than Usyk, 100%. Big Joe 6″7 and 19 1/2 stone like a juggernaut coming forward at me trying to smash me to pieces or Usyk trying to steal a jab running around the ring, trying to nick a point here and there.”

Fury and Usyk are likely to meet in an undisputed fight next that would land in Saudi Arabia at the end of February/Early March 2023. However, Fury has stated that if a fight with Usyk cannot materialise next, Fury would instead face Joyce next.

If Fury vs Usyk does happen next, the WBC Heavyweight champion stated that he would face Joyce after beating Usyk, so whatever happens, it looks like fight fans will be treated to Fury vs Joyce in 2023 should they both keep winning.
