Former world heavyweight champion Tony Belew commented on the fight between WBA, WBO, IBO and IBF owner Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) against mandatory challenger Daniel Dubois (19-1, 18 KOs). Belew, 40, believes that the Ukrainian will “educate” the 25-year-old.
Dubois is currently a regular WBA champion, which means he is first in line to fight for the super heavyweight title, a mandatory bout already announced by the World Boxing Association.
Bellier is confident Alexander will win easily if he builds on Dubois’ last fight against Kevin Lehren.
“He just takes Dubois to school. Of course, when you have such an amazing opportunity to fight for three belts, you need to use it, but Daniel is like a child who is still learning the game. He is still cheese, his milk has not dried on his lips. In a fight with Lerena, Dubois was really injured and he fell. I watched this meeting. If Kevin had shown his punch even a little bit, he would have won, “boxing-social.com quotes Belew.
Tony noted that Alexander Usyk is not such a big crushing puncher, but he has the power.
“He’ll hit you like he’ll almost show up. He’s extremely accurate, he has the best legs you’ve ever seen, and his turns and punch distribution are incredible,” the Briton summed up.
As GLOBAL HAPPENINGS reported, on March 10, Fury delivered a tough ultimatum to Usyk’s team. A native of Manchester demanded 70% of the fee for the fight, and also said that he would add one percent to himself for every day until the signing of the contract.
Alexander immediately agreed to the conditions of the British, put forward a pro-Ukrainian demand to him.
In response, Tyson came up with a new requirement, suggesting that our compatriot exclude the rematch clause from the contract for the fight for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion and change the distribution of the fee.
Usyk could not stand such humiliation and refused to indulge Tyson’s whims, canceling the fight. After that, Fury went wild, posting a minute-long video containing continuous abuse.
