Usyk Ready for Fury: Years of Prep Since Klitschko's Fall

Holding the belts for WBA, WBO, IBO, and IBF heavyweight champ, Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) spills the beans on his prep timeline for the Tyson Fury face-off.

- Training more than a 5-week stint?

- I can roll with the punches non-stop for five weeks.

- Gotta switch up your training big time?

- Nope. Been in Fury's fight camp in my head since he toppled Wladimir Klitschko.

He was clueless about my not being a big shot in boxing. But I've been in the zone for him and Anthony Joshua from day one in the pro ring.

- Scared of Fury?

- Not a chance," Usyk dished out in a chat for the Gloves Off show on TNT Sports.

The Usyk-Fury showdown is on the docket for February 17 in Saudi Arabia.
