WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is totally backing Joe Joyce to beat Oleksandr Usyk in a possible rematch within the execs.
And, he believes Joyce will do it in fashion – by knockout.
Within the beginner ranks, Usyk gained a call over Joyce.
Quick-forward to the professional ranks – the WBO has accredited Usyk vs. Joyce for the interim-heavyweight title.
Usyk, 34-years-old, unified the complete cruiserweight division when he beat Murat Gassiev to win the World Boxing Tremendous Collection match.
However he hasn’t had the identical affect since transferring as much as the heavyweight division in 2019.
He had some struggles in a stoppage win over Chazz Witherspoon. After which, final October, he gained a harder than anticipated twelve spherical determination over veteran Derek Chisora.
Final yr, the 35-year-old Joyce picked up probably the most excessive profile win of his profession when he stopped Daniel Dubois.
When contemplating each side of the coin, Fury doesn’t view Usyk as a heavyweight menace and believes Joyce goes to avenge his beginner loss with a really spectacular knockout victory.
“Simple, Joyce stopping him. I don’t suppose Usyk is the massive menace everybody as soon as thought he was just a few years in the past. When he was a cruiserweight, he was good. He is had two fights at heavyweight and struggled in each of them, actually,” Fury informed Behind The Gloves.
“He did not look nice in opposition to Chazz Weatherspoon, Weatherspoon was out the ring years and years and years. And he did not look good in opposition to Chisora. I believed Chisora nicked a draw to be trustworthy. So yeah, he did not look nice. And I feel large Joe will stroll by way of him, be like a middleweight versus an excellent heavyweight and I fancy large Joe to nail him.”
