Michael Hunter has shared his thoughts on a potential blockbuster fight between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury.
Hunter faced the Ukrainian in 2017 losing by unanimous decision so he knows exactly what it is like to share the ring with the unified heavyweight champion.
Usyk-Hunter Round 12

Speaking to SecondsOut the heavyweight contender said,
“I still see Usyk giving Tyson the blues. The power is the only thing, he’s going to have to figure out how to gain his respect and win rounds. Usyk is a fleet footed fighter, and he’s going to have to gain some of Tyson’s respect in the earlier rounds.
I see Usyk still giving him fits though. It’s very controversial, but I still think Usyk gives him problems because he has problems with fighters that are our size and use their feet a lot.
But I don’t think they’ll even step in the ring together. Hopefully they do, but I don’t see it happening.”
Do you agree with Hunter’s take? Let us know in the comments.
