🚨 Tyson Fury warned he could get ‘disqualified’ in Oleksandr Usyk fight by former opponent

Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk collide on May 18th.

Fight fans will (hopefully) see the first undisputed heavyweight champion since 1999 when the majestic Lennox Lewis defeated Evander Holyfield.

Back in 2013 ‘The Gypsy King’ travelled to the states to take on Steve Cunningham. In the fight, Fury didn’t have it all his own way and was sent heavily to the canvas before bludgeoning the American into submission, knocking him out in the seventh round of their bout.

And speaking to World Boxing News, Fury’s former opponent made a very interesting prediction.

He said: “I think Usyk wins by decision against Fury. Either that or Fury gets disqualified.

“Fury’s going to have to lean and lay all over Usyk to tire him down as he does usually.

“I think the referee will be alerted to this before the fight [by team Usyk] and Fury will lose points.”

Cunningham went onto claim that Fury didn’t take Francis Ngannou seriously in his last outing.

He continued: “I believe Ngannou only looked as good as he did fighting Fury because Fury didn’t take fighting an MMA guy seriously.

“Ngannou does have unbelievable power, though. He landed a clean shot on Fury, who wasn’t in shape at all.

“I was surprised at that but not at the fact that Fury got up and outpointed him.”
