Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk recap

Following the first fight, all signs pointed toward an immediate rematch and that’s what we will get. The big question will be if the “Gypsy King” can make the necessary changes to avenge the first loss of his career against the Ukrainian superstar.

What Happened in Fight 1: While Fury was able to handle Usyk early and had many good moments in the first fight, the grit and toughness of Usyk became too much and he was able to overwhelm him late and eke out a very hard-fought split-decision victory.

Changes: Fury was in the best shape of his life for this bout. One has to wonder if he might pack on some extra pounds this time around to see if that makes a difference. Either way, he knows what he needs to do to get a win in the rematch. While Usyk is in the difficult spot of trying to somehow make a winning strategy even better the second time.

The bottom line: This fight will either certify that Usyk is far and away the best heavyweight boxer on the planet or set up a legendary trilogy bout between the two in 2025. It is a win-win for fight fans around the world.
