Fury vs Usyk will be a great fight. Two incredibly skilled boxers but as in the old adage " a good big un will always beat a good little un" Fury will be too much for Usyk.

If the fight gets made it will also be the first all white heavyweight championship clash since Rocky Marciano fought Don Cockell in 1955.

Agreed....man handling Vs precision..

Usyk was rocked yesterday by body shots and Joshua's corner should have capitalised on that...bad tactics. Could have gone the other way. Massive turnaround in round 10.

Great victory for Callum Smith btw!

Apart from either of the Klitschkos vs Fury, Pulev, Ibragimov, Sanders, Povetkin, Adamek, Pianeta, Wach, Chagaev.... etc And probably a whole bunch of others.... Dooh!

An interesting fact about Usyk..... He is regarded as a small, blown up cruiser weight but at the weigh in for the first AJ fight he stood 6 foot 3 and weighed 220 pounds. Which is small by today's standards. However, go back to 1974, "The Rumble in the Jungle", Ali's opponent "Big" bad George Foreman, a huge heavyweight at the time weighed in at exactly the same 220 pounds and 6 foot 3 as Usyk.

Fantastic fight. Quality won out over quantity. BTW, Fury's young nephew was actually murdered later on Saturday night in Manchester, after a night having been earlier watching the fight.
