McGirt: "Usyk Has the Style to Beat Fury"

Renowned American trainer Buddy McGirt shared his thoughts on the strengths of WBA, WBO, IBO, and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) compared to WBC champion Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs), whom he is set to meet in May.

"Usyk has the style to beat Fury, but Tyson is one of the best fighters at using his size to his advantage. He's very good and consistent at it.

The main question is how Usyk will deal with this from the 6th to the 12th round," said McGirt.

The Usyk vs. Fury showdown is scheduled for May 18th. This will be the first bout for the undisputed heavyweight championship since 1999 and the first fight for four major titles in heavyweight history.

Fury has promised that he will be in excellent shape for the confrontation.
