Fury Could Be Disqualified in Fight Against Usyk

Former cruiserweight (up to 90,7 kg) and heavyweight (over 90,7 kg) boxer, and former opponent of Tyson Fury, Steve Cunningham believes that Oleksandr Usyk will defeat Tyson Fury, possibly even due to the disqualification of the Brit.

"I think Usyk will win by decision. Or Fury will be disqualified. He will have to lean and lay on Usyk to tire him out – as he usually does. But I think the referee will be warned about this before the fight by the Ukrainian's team, and Fury will lose points for it.

I think then there should be a Joshua vs. Fury fight. Who will win? I don't know if both are at their peak condition. They have a championship mindset. They will present different dangers to each other," said Cunningham.

Fury and Cunningham fought in 2013. Steve sent his opponent to the canvas in the second round but lost by TKO in the seventh.

Usyk and Fury are set to fight on May 18 – for the title of the undisputed heavyweight champion.
