The air is charged with anticipation at the WBC Congress in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. WBA, WBO, IBO, and IBF heavyweight champ Oleksandr Usyk, representing the Ready To Fight team, responded to Tyson Fury's bold claim of tearing him apart in four rounds:
"Fury's words? They bring a grin to my face. I'm here, ready to rumble, and he's nowhere to be seen. Claiming the WBC belt is more than just a title to me—it's my ticket to becoming the undisputed champ in two weight classes," Usyk declared.
Heavyweight legend Evander Holyfield, also present at the congress, broke down Usyk's edge against Fury:
"This is going to be a battle of speed and endurance. Usyk's got the agility, he's a southpaw, and that's an advantage. Fury's no pushover, though; his style shapes battles. Speed and resilience against a bigger guy—that's the recipe for victory. But, one heavy blow could end it all. I've got faith in Usyk. He's not one to back down. For me, boxing was a chapter of my life where I gave it my all. Now, it's over, and I'm content. You must love the win and endure the grind to reach the top. In the ring, it's all about strategy and resilience," shared Holyfield.
In another event highlight, Ready To Fight and the WBC have inked a memorandum of cooperation, marking a significant moment in the boxing world.
