Warren: "Tyson Won't Need to Cut Weight"

In an interview with the YouTube channel Seconds Out, Frank Warren, the head of Queensberry Promotions and promoter of WBC heavyweight (over 90,7 kg) champion Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs), shared his thoughts on his client's fight against the holder of the WBO, WBA, IBO, and IBF titles, Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs).

"I felt that Fury could stop Usyk when the contract was signed. Fury has been training very hard but had a cut. The difference between that camp and this one is that he had a few weeks off, but he won't need to cut weight.

He's at his weight, which means he will have speed, he will have power, and you will see the good old Tyson Fury in the ring. He will knock him out," Warren said.

The fight for the title of undisputed world heavyweight champion between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk is scheduled for May 18 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
