“I think it will be a draw” American heavyweight Michael Hunter makes bold prediction on Oleksandr Usyk vs Tyson Fury for the historic undisputed title fight

The grand battle between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk has boxing fans all over the world eagerly speculating about who might emerge victorious. Heavyweight Michael Hunter, however , predicted that the fight would end in a draw. 

A boxing match between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk, which has been widely rumored about for months, is now all but guaranteed. Two of the best heavyweights in the world have verbally agreed to a fight in Saudi Arabia or the United Kingdom.

Ahead of the fight, Michael Hunter gave an interview to Pro Boxing Fans in which he expressed his thoughts on the highly anticipated bout. It is predicted by the 34-year-old boxer that the fight between the heavyweights would end in a draw, setting up a rematch between the two boxers. 

“I think it will be a draw. Usyk is going to give him problems, but I think that Tyson Fury is so big and stuff like that. The way that it is going to start off is by looking like Tyson Fury is winning and then towards the end, Usyk might edge it out, I think they might call it a draw and they can do it again.” said Hunter. 

The Bounty Hunter fought Osyk once, and based on his experience, he believes Usyk is persistent, knows how to work through tiredness, and knows how to play the game like a masterful chess player. 

Fury is 2.06 meters tall, while Usyk is only 1.91 meters tall; as a result, Hunter believes that Usyk may have an advantage over Fury due to the difference in their heights. Hunter stated that 

“Somebody that is a little bit smaller, that can handle a big guy, is always going to be a big guys worst enemy.

In 2017, Hunter suffered his only defeat in his professional boxing career to Usyk by unanimous decision.
