“Cаn’t run tһаt lonɡ witһ һim,” Iron Mike Tyson bасks Tyson Fury to beаt Oleksаndr Usyk despite Frаnсis Nɡаnnou’s knoсkdown

Mike Tyson unveiled his prediction for the much-anticipated battle between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury. Mike was part of Francis Ngannou‘s fight camp in his recent fight against Tyson Fury. Ngannou lost the fight via split decision. However, he did manage to secure the only knockdown in the entire fight in the third round.

‘Iron’ Mike recently revealed his prediction for the upcoming Oleksandr Usyk vs Tyson Fury fight. Despite Fury’s subpar performance against Ngannou, Mike Tyson believed Fury would walk out of the ring as the winner. In a recent interview with TNT Sports, this is what Mike Tyson said:

He (Usyk) can’t run that long with him, Tyson’s going to wear him down… I’m a great fan of Usyk’s but he’s not going to beat Tyson moving and running, he’s going to have to eventually fight.

Mike Tyson holds a deep admiration for Usyk. However, he asserted that Usyk’s strategy of evading Fury would not secure a win. The debate among fans has intensified. Some are beginning to believe that Usyk may be the one to break Fury’s undefeated record. Meanwhile, others argued that Ngannou deserved another opportunity to face Tyson Fury or other top heavyweight contenders.

The stage is set for a thrilling showdown in the world of heavyweight boxing. Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk were initially set to fight for the undisputed world heavyweight title on December 23, but this date was postponed. This bout will be significant as it marks the first heavyweight fight for all the major titles since 1997, creating excitement in the boxing world.

I was really proud of Francis Ngannou because he listened to everything I said…I knew if he landed that left hook on anybody they were gone – and I was right. The champ went down. I’m happy.
