Derek Chisora's Ever-Shifting Prediction for Fury vs. Usyk Undisputed Bout

Derek Chisora, a fighter who has shared the ring with both Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk, initially sided with Fury in the upcoming historic battle for the undisputed title. However, in a recent turn of events, Chisora seems to have changed his tune when discussing the highly anticipated clash between the two heavyweight titans.

Initially, Chisora had confidently backed Fury, citing the Gypsy King’s size and reach advantage as the factors that would secure an ‘easy’ victory over former cruiserweight king Usyk.  Chisora appeared more equivocal, expressing uncertainty about predicting the fight’s outcome.

Acknowledging the short camp period for both fighters and the challenges they face in preparing adequately, Chisora admitted it’s become challenging to make a clear prediction. He highlighted the potential for injuries and the struggle for fighters to hit their rhythm, especially considering the recent postponement of the bout.

Chisora emphasized the significance of Fury delivering a strong performance, citing the Gypsy King’s last fight against Ngannou, where he secured victory but had an off day. Despite believing Fury won on the scorecards, Chisora stressed that in boxing, there’s no room for off days if one aims to win convincingly.

Interestingly, while assessing the upcoming clash, Chisora also expressed his ambition to face Ngannou himself, confident that he could secure a knockout victory. His insights into the Fury-Usyk bout hint at the unpredictability and high stakes of the boxing world, adding layers of anticipation to the much-anticipated showdown on February 17.
