Lennox Lewis Marvels at Usyk's Unmatchable Speed

British heavyweight boxing legend Lennox Lewis recently shared his views on the upcoming clash between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury: "No disrespect intended, but each fighter harbors an inner beast. Usyk, to me, resembles a nimble rabbit — superb in movement, virtually uncatchable. As for Tyson Fury, he's more like a giraffe. Imagine these two as animals in the ring — who triumphs? The rabbit or the giraffe?

Fury doesn't need to be overly mobile. Usyk, on the other hand, must fully utilize the ring. Don't underestimate Usyk as a contender for Fury. Remember, Usyk's a former undisputed champ who's yet to taste defeat. This guy's a born winner, and losing's not in his vocabulary.

I foresee a single showdown between them, but surprises aren't off the table in this game. You can never be sure," stated Lewis.

The Usyk-Fury face-off is slated for February 17 in Saudi Arabia, marking the first bout for the absolute heavyweight title since 1999, when Lewis triumphed over Evander Holyfield to claim the undisputed championship.
