Authoritative boxer Tony Bellew shared his opinion about the title fight between Usyk and Fury

Renowned former boxer Tony Bellew weighed in on the highly anticipated title bout between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury. 

The British fighter believes that the Ukrainian athlete possesses all the necessary qualities to emerge victorious against the formidable "Gypsy King".

"I thought Fury would be too big, but as their fight gets closer, I’m really starting to lean towards Usyk. I think Oleksandr is the only fighter who can beat Fury.

I can say that since Tyson Fury started working with SugarHill Steward, his style has changed drastically. He's no longer a pillow-fisted fighter. He’s a heavy, pressing counter puncher. I think this is one of the best transformations I've ever seen in a fighter. I always thought he was going to be a huge, awkward heavyweight, who was a nightmare to fight. But now he's a big, awkward, and dangerous heavyweight."

Bellew noted the high speed and endurance of Usyk, which is a plus for him.

"The only problem is that because of his weight and size, Fury will always be one step behind Usyk. Oleksandr has the best feet in the world. His legs are just incredible. I understand why Fury is considered the favorite, but if someone is to beat him , it'll be Usyk, because he's fast enough to run around all night long. He's athletic and sharp enough," Boxing Social quotes Bellew as saying.
