Oleksandr Usyk is an undefeated elite of modern-day boxing with 13 KOs and several world championships under his belt. However, his upcoming fight against Derek Chisora can bring him a lot of challenges. Being a cruiserweight veteran, Usyk is still new to the heavyweight division.
Usyk still has a legitimate chance to win the fight. Being one of the most lethal knockout artists of the sport, he knows when to land the big shots. If landed clean, Usyk can put anyone to sleep, but he will also have to prevent himself from Chisora’s assault throughout the fight.
Derek Chisora is equally known for his heavy punches, which have knocked out several heavyweight elites. Thus, Usyk cannot afford to demean his abilities. While boxing fans are expecting fireworks inside the ring, here’s how the fight can look like.
Derek Chisora and Oleksandr Usyk are ready for war
The heavyweight matchup has been built on a hilarious note, where none of the contenders share a bad-blood rivalry. Yet, they are expected to put on brutal action inside the ring. Being the bigger man, Derek Chisora might come up with some heavy action in the initial rounds.
Meanwhile, he cannot deploy all his energy in doing so. If Usyk finds a loophole in Chisora’s game plan, he will exploit it to the fullest. Also, Usyk is a technical boxer, and he will arrive with his big shots too. But will they be effective against Chisora?
‘War’ Chisora’s experience can be a huge factor in the fight. The British heavyweight has been against several elites of the modern-era, boasting a pro record of 32 wins and 9 losses. No doubt, Chisora will try to use all his power to dismantle Usyk in the latter’s heavyweight debut.
If the fight goes to the final bell, it will demand a lot more than just power and precision from the boxers. Apart from that, Usyk and Chisora need to maintain their stance and position throughout the fight. Since both of them are well-known elites, they will bring the best out of each other.
