Darren Seeley, sparring partner to the heavyweight champ Oleksandr Usyk, explained why he bets on Usyk to outbox Tyson Fury.
"The Usyk-Fury bout's gonna be a tough, drawn-out scrap, but Usyk, true to his title as a ring wizard, will decode Fury after a few rounds and claim victory. My money's on the later rounds or a unanimous nod from the judges," he predicts.
Every fighter is unique, each bringing their own flavor to the fight, but seeing Usyk's mental game up close in training? That's the next level. "Witnessing his mental prep was just mind-blowing. Sharing the ring with him is an honor, and he's just as solid outside the ropes," Seeley adds.
The showdown for the undisputed heavyweight crown between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury is set for February 17 in Saudi Arabia. Stay tuned for more ringside insights from Usyk's sparring squad!
