The expert also compared the Ukrainian boxer with Joe Joyce.

"Joe Joyce is a more difficult opponent than Usyk? Joyce is a tough fighter. I understand why Fury said that. Joyce is constantly coming at you, constantly applying pressure," Scott said in an interview with YouTube channel ESNEWS.

We will remind, the fight between Fury and Usyk should take place in the first half of next year.
