Lennox Lewis: Usyk Is No Walk Over For Tyson Fury

Lennox Lewis, the last undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, gave his thoughts on a potential clash between WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, and WBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk.

"I think it's going to be a great fight. Usyk is a champion, he's been [unified] champion for a little bit," Lewis said when speaking to BT Sport. "He came to the fight and I know he was watching, feeling the energy. He's going to try and find a way to beat Tyson Fury. It's not going to be a walkover for Fury. This man is a champion. This man is dedicated. He puts everything into his training and his will to win."

On this last Saturday, Tyson Fury stopped Derek Chisora in a trilogy bout, that we didn’t really call for, but happened. After the bout, Fury insulted Usyk, as the fans got excited about a potential super-fight.

Usyk, the former undisputed cruiserweight undisputed champion, and the best cruiserweight ever, in my estimation. Some have cast aspersions stating Usyk is too small, but Lewis is not one to buy into that.
