    I think Usyk will win by using angles plus his superior foot speed and punch output. Fury is very mobile and well co-ordinated for a man of his size and gangly build. But Usyk, being smaller and more compactly built, has faster feet and better co-ordination than Fury. I'm expecting Usyk to get inside Fury's reach and build a points lead, round by round, by consistently throwing and landing more punches than Fury. Usyk by UD is my prediction.

      I don't know who I want to win. But fury goes down when hit. Usy k will land, so I fear fury could go down a few times.

          Pretty much how I see it.

          I don't think it'll be exciting, I think it'll be intriguing, maybe.

          Usyk has fought big men like AJ but he's flat footed mid-range boxer, absolutely perfect for Usyk. It's tough to beat a smaller quicker man when your only skill set is at his perfect range.

          AJ doesn't know how to box long off a jab and pivot like Fury can. He also doesn't know how to "big man" an opponent up close.

          That's why size will matter this time. Fury has the luxury of having the ability to box long off a pivot with a huge reach, or he can maul. Usyk really needs Fury to stand and box at mid range and why would Fury do that when he has other options with a major advantage? Dubois and AJ didn't have those options because they never fight that way.

          I mention a pivot because Fury is one of few heavyweight that knows how to Jab and pivot. It completely negates a fighter who switches angles because you're keeping them at a distance where their angles aren't doing anything. That's what Teo did to Loma, it was a very smart game plan. Loma only had success when Teo started straying from the game plan, but once he got back on it, Loma was basically ineffective, as was his switch of angle.

          You can't switch angle when someone keeps you at long range and pivots with you. Its like the degrees of an inner and outer circle.


          The difference between Fury/Usyk and Teo/Loma is that Teo hits hard enough to intimidate a smaller guy like Loma and make him cautious about getting close enough to land his own shots. Teo's game plan of pivoting with Loma, plus that intimidating power, is what won the fight for him.

          Imo, Fury doesn't have the kind of power to intimidate Usyk. Not with fast punches thrown on the move, at any rate.

              True but Usyk has shown he's vulnerable to the body in the past so Fury could be the FIRST one to put him down if he connects with a good body shot. No doubt that's one of Fury's strategies which is why I expect Usyk to use his superior footwork and work rate to dance circles round him in the early rounds building up a points lead before fighting on the inside in the later rounds when Fury will be gassed with lower punch output and pop.

                  Size matters. I just don’t see Usyk being able to get inside and close that gap. I could see it being a bit like Teofimo vs Loma.

                  Fury looks in good shape and I think it’s clear the game plan is to keep it long. Usyk is quite selective with his punches, he can be overly patient like Loma, Klitschko etc, I think back to the Bellew fight and how it took him a little while to get inside Bellew’s jab. I’m almost certain Fury wins this fight by a boring and quite ugly decision.

                  It’s a weird feeling because I do want Usyk to win but I just can’t see it happening when analysing the fight.
                  I think Fury is just too big. I think Usyk will make it a damn good fight. I want to pick him but agree Fury looks ready.

                  I just hope there isn’t BS scorecards. I always worry about that in a big fight involving Bob and TR.

                  I just want a great fight.

                    Fury 8-12. The question is if Usyk can survive.

                      Possible, but Usyk will have to be at his best and Fury slightly lower than his best.

                      Otherwise, it will be difficult because Usyk will have to box a little farther from his opponent than he is used to due to Fury's sizeable reach advantage. Also, Fury's upper body movement and fighting off the back foot can make hitting more difficult for Usyk. Not to mention Fury's excellent jab and feints will always keep Usyk guessing. He got hit by a few from Joshua so he is hittable for sure, it is just that Joshua fought the same way to which Usyk quickly adjusted. Fury won't be the same...at least not the best Fury.
