“I’ll obliterate him” – Tyson Fury vows to make light work of Oleksandr Usyk

Posted by

Tyson Fury has vowed to “obliterate” Oleksandr Usyk, should the pair eventually meet to unify the division.

Fury and Usyk were two fighters who were never pinned up against each other prior to Anthony Joshua’s capitulation back in September.

The fight saw Usyk crowned the unified heavyweight champion of the world, and considering Fury holds the only belt he doesn’t have around his waist, it’s a fight that makes sense.

Fury will have to face WBC mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte first, with Anthony Joshua looking for revenge in the rematch against Usyk, but should both fighters escape unscathed, the natural next step is to fight each other.

You imagine that both would fancy their chances, considering what they have achieved in recent years, but Fury doesn’t think it will be much of a contest at all, as he told DubaiEyeSport:

“You’ve got the most powerful in the history of our sport [Wilder] and what’s Usyk gonna do? Tap dance around the ring and run away?”

“He didn’t do any damage at all to Anthony Joshua and definitely ain’t doing damage to me. I’ll obliterate him.”

What do YOU think, fight fans? Would this fight be as straightforward for the Gypsy King as he seems to think, or would Usyk be more of a tricky customer than he’s giving him credit for?
