Could Chisora shock Usyk?
This certainly won’t be a walk in the park for Usyk. Chisora has fought the elite of British heavyweight boxing including Tyson Fury, David Haye and Dillian Whyte. He has the experience at heavyweight where Usyk his still adjustng with his new weight class.
Chisora is currently on a three fight winning streak, lastly picking up a fourth round KO of David Price back in October 2019. His best key to victory would be to bully the lighter man and use his strength and power early in the rounds to see how Usyk reacts.
Our prediction is that has too many tools for Chisora to handle. Coming in with more fluid movement and slicker boxing. Usyk can pick apart Chisora with either a late TKO or decision victory.
