🚨 Former Tyson Fury opponent backs him to win the rematch against Oleksandr Usyk

Posted by

Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk are set to rematch again later this year in Saudia Arabia.

Fury lost in his bid to become the undisputed heavyweight champion when the Ukrainian beat him via a split-decision verdict from ringside.

The heavyweights will now fight again on December 21 but it is unknown if the fight will be for the undisputed title again. This depends on whether the IBF strap will be up for grabs after Usyk applied for an exemption to stall a mandatory title defence.

One man that knows exactly what it is like to face ‘The Gypsy King’ is the Swede, Otto Wallin and he has given his assessment on the future clash between Fury and Usyk.

Speaking to SecondsOut he said: “It’s tough to say. I think that Fury looked really good in that fight, he looked his best, and the same with Usyk so it will be interesting. I think both guys will learn from it and probably get better. If Fury didn’t get hurt like that I think he would have won the fight but he did get hurt and Usyk did it and he deserved it so there’s not much you can say about it.

“[The rematch will be] maybe more of the same, Fury targeting the body of Usyk more, that was working for him. It will be really interesting to see the rematch. This fight was close, Usyk won by one point, so the fight could go either way.”

He was then pressed on a winner, and Wallin responded: “You know what, I want to say Fury again.”

How do you see the rematch playing out? Let us know in the comments.
