Peter Fury: Oleksandr Usyk is better than Wladimir Klitschko

Peter Fury believes that Oleksandr Usyk is a much better boxer than Wladimir Klitschko. Usyk could soon have a fight with Tyson Fury and that is what most are waiting for. “Klitschko’s fought like a big man should; they were good fighters in their day, but he’s a more rounded package is Usyk.

He takes punches; he rolls with them, he slips in – he’s got all the skillset in the world,”-Peter Fury said, as quoted by “He’s not just mastered one skillset and stuck to it; this guy has got multi gears in his closet and can turn the heat up and down.

He ticks all the boxes,” Gareth A. Davies commented on the 'behind the scenes' situation. Many hope that Fury and Usyk will be in the ring, but there are still some things to decide about that. “Usyk didn’t have an interim fight.

Tyson Fury did, obviously, on December the 3rd, on that cold night at Spurs,” said Gareth A. Davies to talkSPORT Boxing. “You never know. Usyk may suddenly be saying, ‘I’m not sure. I might want a tune-up before I fight Tyson Fury.’ He may not.

Tyson mentioned the hand injury. He mentioned it to me on the night, so who knows what’s going on in the background. They may be looking at the purse split, the site fee, and all those things."

Bob Arum and Frank Warren

Bob Arum and Frank Warren are the main characters in the whole story.

"I think they are looking at an overall site fee for it [Fury vs. Usyk]. They want that money to come forward. It’s been very quiet in the Middle East, but then again, Bob Arum and Frank Warren don’t talk as much and maybe not as available as Eddie Hearn is when he talks about those things out in the open all the time.

As I say, we need some resolution in the next week, otherwise, we might hear different sounds and maybe a different location,” said Davies.
