Bob Arum: Usyk is a very smart fighter, he is fearless and prepares very well for fights

President of the promotion company Top Rank Bob Arum spoke about the upcoming fight between WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion Alexander Usik (21-0, 14 KOs) and Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs).

«Let's be honest. You watched Fury's last fight with Ngannou, he either really wasn't ready for it or he became less fast and agile. As fighters get older, this happens.

I really think it's the first option — that Fury didn't prepare as well for Ngannou as he should have, who by the way has the tools to become a force in the heavyweight division. I really believe his fight against Usyk will be exciting. Usik is a very smart fighter, he prepares very well, he is fearless.

This will be a very big test for Fury and he knows it. Tyson is preparing hard for this fight.»

Let us remind you that the fight will take place in Riyadh on February 17.
