Legendary American boxer Roy jones jr spoke about the prospects of the absolute world champion in heavyweight Alexandra Usika (16-0, 12 KOs) in the heavyweight division. So Jones believes that a Ukrainian is capable of conquering the three most important leaders. Anthony Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs), Deontey Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs) and Tyson's Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs):

"The most important thing Usyk must understand is always be yourself. Consequently, in the heavy it needs box as well as in cruisers. Alexander must remain fast and maintain the sharpness of the strikes. Speed ​​is power, if you are sharp and fast, you hold the element of shock, and this keeps everyone in suspense. Heavyweight, cruisers, all boxers are afraid of shock. When you're struggling with a bigger competitor, you should not let it get pushed, but you have to shock it.

Once you have the opponent respect you, you can start working with him. Usik will speak well against Wilder and Joshua, if he wisely approaches weight gain. He has every chance to win these guys, because Alexander has an excellent IQ boxing. It will have an advantage in that respect. Usyk's problems can come up with Tyson Fury, because this guy is also very smart. This will be the hardest fight for him.

Wilder and Joshua are also hard to beat because they hit very strong and physically strong. As a boxer, Alexander is better, but Anthony is constantly making progress. It's going to be a cool game. Deontey is also growing and fighting with Fury was a great experience for him. I hope he analyzes his mistakes and works on it in the salon. Now the heavyweight division is very fascinating, but I think Whip can beat all those guys. "

Usyk will hold the next fight on May 18 or May 25.

Previous Ukrainian promoter Alexander Krasyuk said Usyk wants to be the king of super heavy.
