Tyson Fury will pay close watch to Usyk’s three heavyweight championship defenses over the coming two months. Tyson Fury announced he was done with boxing after defeating Dillian Whyte in April and winning the WBC title.
Because he has never lost a fight, Tyson Fury believes the winner of Usyk vs. Anthony Joshua will face him next.

It wasn’t a landslide that dismembered Usyk. Usyk was standing there. Hit him repeatedly till he died. Joshua believes Usyk was overly affectionate. He was speedy, intelligent, and a southpaw.

Michael Bisping views
Michael Bisping was thinking about the battle between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk. Bisping believes Usyk will prevail in the rematch with Joshua. Joshua previously held the UFC middleweight title.
Usyk won the first fight, earning him the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight belts.
On his YouTube channel, Bisping responded to queries about himself by writing:
“I’ve previously discussed this. Usyk is most certainly up to his old tricks. Definitely. He is a world-class boxer. mobility, speed, and talent Joshua is talented, although he moves slower and more awkwardly than the other players.
He’s a large fella. He has considerable authority. Not only is Oleksandr Usyk a superior boxer, but he is also more energetic and fast. “Usyk, I believe, is up to the task. He is the ideal size for powerlifting and boxing.”
Eddie Hearn Views
Eddie Hearn wants Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua to rematch.
According to Hearn, Joshua and Usyk’s second bout will be shorter than the first.
Eddie Hearn, a long-time boxing promoter, believes Anthony Joshua will beat Oleksandr Usyk in six rounds.
Despite the further delays, Anthony Joshua’s rematch with Oleksandr Usyk, as stipulated by the constitution, will still take place this summer. Hearn believes they will spend less time together in Saudi Arabia than they did previously.
Joshua was defeated by Usyk in their first meeting in London because Usyk was larger and had more points. The Ukrainian was a heavy favorite to win, but he fought poorly against Chazz Witherspoon and Derek Chisora and still won.
Hearn believes Joshua’s prospects have improved and that he can now win the heavyweight belt in three weight divisions. On Instagram Live, Hearn stated that “AJ KOs Usyk in six rounds.” Anthony Joshua will win the rematch against Usyk, in his opinion.
The battle between Usyk and Joshua for the unified belts, which was scheduled for July 23 in Saudi Arabia, has been pushed back two weeks. The Telegraph said it would take three weeks, but Hearn believes it would happen sooner.
