Shevadzutsky: "Fury 'Won't Carry Through'"

In an interview with vRINGe, Ukrainian heavyweight (over 90,7 kg) representative Igor Shevadzutsky (11-1, 9 KOs) picked a favorite in the upcoming fight for the title of the undisputed world heavyweight champion between the holder of the WBO, WBA, IBO, and IBF titles, Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs), and the WBC champion, Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs).

"I'm rooting for Sanya in any case. But I think he will find it awkward and uncomfortable due to the dimensions and boxing style of Fury. However, this is a solvable problem for Oleksandr, especially when considering the volume of punches thrown. If Sanya can impose his boxing style, then Fury 'won't carry through' the number of punches, these movements.

Once, Fury mentioned in an interview that the hardest fight for him was against some guy who weighed 100 kg and threw a lot of punches. It was just hell for him. I think that's exactly the hell that awaits him. Sanya is a trained and intelligent fighter. He can fight, he can endure, he can box. He can adapt to different styles. It may even be quite probable that there will be a knockout. If Sanya finds his distance, if he does it quickly, if he starts showering him with punches, — then that's it. Then there will be a knockout. But if Fury can stretch it out and maintain his distance, then it will be much harder," said Shevadzutsky.

The fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk is scheduled for May 18th in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
