Considering that both are great boxers, fans have huge expectations and believe that this duo will put on a show. Looking at the favorite, many expect that Fury will play the role of favorite, and that he could win. However, Usyk is anything but an opponent to be underestimated. Anthony Joshua, a boxer who had the opportunity to be in the ring with both of them, believes that it is difficult to predict who could achieve victory in this match.

“I don’t know. I’ve fought Usyk. I think he’s a phenomenal fighter and I think he has a great team around him. You’re only as good as your team and he has a great team around him. After being in the ring with him and studying him, still studying him now, I think he’s the one to edge it.”-said Joshua, as quoted by

However, Joshua believes that the Ukrainian will win in the end for many reasons. Joshua and Fury are known to not have a great relationship. The question is how objective Joshua's opinion is. In any case, February 17th will best show us who can achieve victory.

“Probably because of his experiences, his ring generalship, and ring craft. I think he’s top-tier."- he continued.

Tyson Fury is a person who does not hesitate to speak his mind and be honest. During one of the training sessions, Fury decided to call out his opponent and emphasized that his goal is to smash Usyk's little rabbit face right in for him.
