Tyson Fury Faces Speculation Over Gym Performance Ahead of Oleksandr Usyk Showdown
The countdown to Tyson Fury’s undisputed heavyweight clash with Oleksandr Usyk on February 17 is marked by unsettling rumors from his training camp. Former cruiserweight champion Jonny Nelson has cast doubt on Fury’s preparations, suggesting the ‘Gypsy King’ is allegedly being “turned over in the gym.”
Nelson, speaking on talkBOXING, expressed concerns about Fury’s form, referencing rumors that question his current state. The 35-year-old, coming off a controversial split decision win against Francis Ngannou, faces a critical moment in his career against Usyk.
The aftermath of Fury’s last fight should have served as a wake-up call, but Nelson’s insights into the training camp raise questions about the heavyweight champion’s focus and physical condition. Despite the noises of Fury’s struggles in the gym, Nelson acknowledges that he expects Fury to defeat Usyk, but with a caveat.
Reflecting on Fury’s previous performance, Nelson highlights the potential consequences if the same version of Fury faces Usyk. “If that Tyson Fury turns up, then it’s done, it’s over,” warns Nelson, alluding to concerns over Fury’s legs and overall preparedness.
Drawing parallels to Tony Bellew’s comment about David Haye, Nelson suggests that Fury might have overlooked the importance of a strong training camp. The WBC heavyweight champion, with a record of 34-1-0, aims to add the WBA, WBO, and IBF belts held by Usyk.
As the boxing world awaits the clash of titans, the speculation surrounding Fury’s gym performance adds an unexpected layer of suspense to an already highly anticipated showdown.
