  • Comments Thread For: Hunter: on Usyk: Nobody is Going To Really Respect Him at Heavyweight

    Heavyweight veteran Michael Hunter does not believe the top players in the weight class are concerned with the abilities of Oleksandr Usyk. Usyk, who unified the entire cruiserweight division, made a move to heavyweight ranks in 2019.

    It seems Hunter is trying to discredit and diminish the top contender to fight the AJ Fury winner. Usyk has earned his status as the no. 1 heavyweight contender though he will be a considerable underdog vs Fury or AJ.

      So nobody is going to respect him, but also it's going to be hard for him to get fights because he will beat them to the point that they don't know how to return from it.



      so which is it?

        Not feeling Usyk at heavy at all, unless he finds people his size. Despite his sound skills, I don't think he'd fare well in even this average heavyweight era. He's stuck.

        He has a good chance against that Joyce guy.

          Earned his status? Beating witherWHO and long in the tooth Chisora isnt earning it.

            Would not bet against Usyk. I don’t think we’ve yet seen the best of him @ HW

              Kind of depends on what Hunter means and, to be honest, his meaning isn't all that clear.

              He could (possibly) mean that nobody will respect his power, but not want to fight him anyway. Or, more likely from the context, no one is going to respect his ability to draw viewers at HW, but will fear being edged in a decision victory that they won't easy know how to reverse in a rematch.

              But, as I say, it's not entirely clear what he means. You have a point that he's potentially contradicting himself, but it's difficult to tell what exactly he is on about.

                And of course, Usyk almost LOST!!...against that same Chisora.

                    HW is the golden class but it's a pipe dream for Usykk
