    One of my favorites but the ? Regarding taking a punch and his power are valid. Nothing in the fight proved that he can hurt a big. I need to see him vs guys that can catch him more often. At least not as slow as Witherspoon. I cant wait to see.

      A little more weight wouldn't be too bad, but I don't think Usyk will ever be a 16st fighter. If he gets above that I can see his biggest advantages over the giant HW's of speed, timing and movement disappearing.

          Kind of reminds me of Holyfields first fight at Heavyweight with James "Quick " Tillis. Holyfield out classed him , hit him often , Tillis basically quit as well. Holyfield was a stronger puncher and had a better chin than Usyk. Usyk is a better pure boxer though. Can Usyk carry his skills up as he gains weight.

              I agree with Usyk here. He looked drained and dead at the weigh in. (I know there isn't a weight limit.) He might need that extra weight and strength, nevertheless, to beat better fighters than Witherspoon. Witherspoon is nondescript. Usyk looked quite average in that fight.

                  His skill level is worlds above most HW's. He'll do very well until he meets the elites (Wilder, Joshua, Fury, Ruiz). Actually would be his worst choice of opponents because his hand speed is equal...or better...than Usyk's.
                  Quit overstating skills so much. He didn't even look world's better than Witherspoon.

                    Same here. Usyk is a very good fighter but Wilder Ortiz Joshua hurt him.



                    Styles make fights and maybe he could beat Ruiz. Maybe.
