Usyk Smiles: Chisora Can Throw All He Wants - He Needs To Land

Former undisputed cruiserweight world champion Oleksandr Usyk is not worried about the high volume workrate of heavyweight banger Derek Chisora.

Usyk and Chisora were scheduled to collide this month in the UK, with their contest being pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There is no set date or location for the bout. During a recent interview, promoter Eddie Hearn had mentioned the possibility of Usyk-Chisora heading overseas.

Chisora is the second opponent for Usyk in the weight class.

The Olympic gold medal winner made his heavyweight debut back in October, with a tough win over late replacement Chazz Witherspoon.

Usyk did not exactly look impressive in the contest - which promoted Chisora and his manager David Haye to question whether the unbeaten boxer can withstand a tough, physical fight at heavyweight.

Chisora plans to come forward, press the action and let his hands go at a high volume rate.

"Normally I face this kind of plan, every fight," Usyk told Sky Sports. "If you want to hit the target, you need to see the target, because he can throw as much punches as you can, but you need to land them into the target.

"When I was an amateur, I was watching his fights as a heavyweight, with Klitschko, David Haye, and I was thinking 'wow', such great guys somewhere far away, and now I'm going to box one of those great guys myself."

Chisora recently admitted in an interview that it will be quite difficult to find sparring partners who can replicate the style of Usyk.

"I'm going to focus on what I do. I'm going to focus by going in the ring, and start looking for my man, and that's it. He's going to dance around, but we've got certain things we've been practising on and things we've been doing every day. It will pay off," Chisora said.

I'm afraid I agree with usyk. I've seen chooses lose too much to pick him to win. Chisora has done well to comeback though

[QUOTE=JakeTheBoxer;20579724]Everybody except Fury, Vitali and Haye struggled with Chisora. Chisora has 9 losses, but, man, I won`t be surprised if he beats Usyk.[/QUOTE] Chisora was on his way to beating a gassed Haye. Credit to David, he landed the big…

Chisora is my guy but i'm pretty sure that Usyk will give a boxing lesson. Del Boy needs to go in there Salido style and try and rough him up.

[QUOTE=MaksBox;20579855]Usyk is hard to hit?!?!?!?! Freaking Chazz Whiterspoon had no issues getting clean hits on Usyk. lol. Usyk is VERY hittable.[/QUOTE] Do you think that was the best of Usyk at heavyweight? I guarantee you he's going to look better…

[QUOTE=MaksBox;20580365]First round, he had no issues tapping him... even still Usyk is very hittable... It is not like he does not take punches ever. Usyk ain't Mayweather.[/QUOTE] How good and effective were all those taps? Did they help him win…
