Who will win the world heavyweight title?

Tyson Fury

Oleksandr Usyk

The undisputed super middleweight champion is coming out of a loss. This has made him more dangerous like an injured lion. He faced Bivol at 175lbs so before going into the ring, he has to bring his weight to 168lbs because GGG is challenging him for his undisputed title. This is why he is working a lot to cut his weight which is the first and utmost important requirement of the fight.

The highly anticipated battle has an interesting context. The first time they met was in 2017. Till then, the Kazakh legend was holding a perfect record. But it changed when he met Canelo. The fight was too close and ended in a controversial decision, which led to their rematch in 2018.

This fight also went for 12 rounds. GGG did great but Canelo emerged victorious.

Since then, GGG is demanding a third fight to finally decide who is the ultimate champ.
