Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk will inevitably square off in the ring in this year’s highly anticipated boxing match to settle the undisputed debate. Trainer Ben Davison shared his thoughts on who could win the fight and how.
Usyk, the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion, currently has a boxing record of 20-0 with 13 knockouts, while Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion, currently has a record of 33. 0-1 with 24 knockouts. In their last fights in 2022, Usyk prevailed against Anthony Joshua and Fury prevailed against Derek Chisora.

As Davison analyzes the skills of the two top boxers, he says that Usyk has an advantage over Fury when it comes to short mace punches that the Ukrainian can use against Fury. Fury, on the other hand, has an advantage over Osyk as he is taller and taller than his opponent.
Also, Davison warns Fury not to underestimate The Cat. He believes that Fury shouldn’t be too confident as Usyk has tremendous skills that can beat him, which is why Fury needs to think about the most effective strategies he can.
“It’s not that simple, because when you just run recklessly at someone and you’re like, ‘Oh, you’re short.’ He’s not a little guy, Oleksandr Usyk. He hits hard enough and with any man that size he can hurt someone. So there has to be an element of respect [from Fury]. You can’t just run at someone with someone with those skills,” Davison said.

Davison also provided Fury with specific strategies to implement in the fight. Ben believes it would be better for Tyson to keep training and remain a Mauler, like he has been training with his American trainer Sugarhill Steward for the past few years, and not try anything new. This is the same strategy Fury used in his last fights to defeat boxers like Deontay Wilder, Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora.
“Size will be a factor if Tyson is able to execute on size. The way to implement greatness is to do the right things to get close. Personally I think if Tyson tries to play the long game Usyk will work him up and down, body, body, head, shifting it up and making it hard to predict and that could push Tyson back. In that case, it will be difficult for Tyson to realize his greatness.” Davison added.
