Hasim Rahman’s Prediction on Tyson Fury-Oleksandr Usyk Before Francis Ngannou Fight

Hasim Rahman has made up his mind on what happens when Tyson Fury faces Oleksandr Usyk, even before the better-than-expected showing of Francis Ngannou. Fury and Usyk are set to face one another in the first undisputed fight for 24 years, with Usyk in good form having beaten Anthony Joshua in back-to-back fights. This year he put his three world titles on the line against Daniel Dubois, while Fury has fought Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora for a third time in the last 18 months, and most recently took on former UFC champion Ngannou.

Speaking to Pro Boxing Fans, former champion Rahman was asked who comes out on top between Fury and Usyk. He said: “I like Usyk in that fight, and it’s not just because of the Ngannou fight. I think Tyson thrives on lazy heavyweights. Usyk is not lazy. He can out Tyson Fury Tyson Fury.”

When asked if he had seen the decline in Fury that some people have been discussing, Rahman replied: “I don’t think he took Ngannou that seriously. Obviously, when you fight you have to bring your a-game every time. Maybe there was a decline in the camp, which means there would be a decline in the fight. What you do in preparation will show up in the fight.”

The fight is just weeks away now, that is if it isn’t delayed. John Fury, Tyson’s father, has worried about this possibility. Hasim Rahman’s prediction is that Oleksandr Usyk will come out on top in this fight, and only time will tell if he is right.

Fury and Usyk’s fight will be the first undisputed fight for 24 years, and one of the most eagerly anticipated bouts in recent years. It promises to be an exciting matchup, with both fighters having proven themselves to be world-class competitors. Fans will be eagerly awaiting the outcome, and Rahman’s prediction may prove to be accurate.
