Former boxing champion Mike Tyson has shared his thoughts on the upcoming Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk fight, despite being on the opposing side the last time. The highly anticipated match is scheduled to take place on February 17 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Undisputed Heavyweight Championship on the Line
This historic bout will mark the first time in history that all four WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO titles will be up for grabs. Both fighters will be battling it out to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
Tyson Supports Fury
Despite Tyson Fury's lackluster performance in his last fight against Francis Ngannou, Tyson is still backing the Gypsy King to come out on top. Tyson believes that Fury's strength and power will ultimately overpower Usyk in the ring.
Tyson told Fight Hub TV, "I think he's the best fighter in the world, especially in the heavyweight division. Great fighters lose, great fighters look bad, but that doesn't stop them from being great fighters."
Fury, who was named after Mike Tyson, will surely be thrilled to have the support of his idol as he prepares for this crucial match.
