Usik’s manager explains why the Ukrainian footballer would be a problem for Fury

Published

Egis Air ConditioningThe manager of WBA, WBO, IBO and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) explained why the Ukrainian could be a strange opponent for WBC champion Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs).

“Of course, the absolute championship at heavyweight has always been the goal. No one believed he could be an outright cruiserweight, no one believed he could even reach the heavyweight category. Look at what he did, look at what he did, and look at how things have changed now.

Yeah, Fury doesn’t know how to work with southpaw fighters. But he doesn’t know how to work with the little guys. Usik has both! He’s smaller than Fury and he’s also left-handed, so we’ll see,” Klimas said.

The meeting will take place on February 17, 2024 in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia).

Lomachenko and Berinchyk will fight for the title. Haney renounces all titles

Published

By


Absolute lightweight champion Devin Haney (30-0, 15 KOs) said he would give up all four of his belts ahead of his junior heavyweight bout with WBC champion Regis Prograis (29-1, 24 KOs) on December 9.

Haney, 25, defended the WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO lightweight belts by unanimous decision against Vasiliy Lomachenko in May of this year. Before that, he took the titles from George Kambosos, defeating the Australian twice on home soil.

“I did everything I could at lightweight. The most important thing for me was to arrange a fight with Gervonta Davis and his side showed no interest in this fight. I have outgrown this division, so now I am moving to junior heavyweight to become a two-division champion.

And after this fight, if I am successful in this fight, God willing, I expect to become a champion in three divisions and move up to heavyweight,” Devin said.

The WBC lightweight title will now belong to Shakur Stevenson (21-0, 10 KOs), who defeated Edwin De Los Santos (16-2, 14 KOs) earlier this month.

Gervonta Davis (29-0, 27 KOs) holds his second WBA title, so he will likely move up to the recognized champion category.

Kambosos (21-2, 10 KOs) and Lomachenko (17-3, 11 knockouts).

The WBO title picture is less clear. Lomachenko is the No. 1 contender but does not appear in the fight. So they’ll fight for the vacant belt Denis Berinchik (18-0, 9 KOs) and Isaac Cruz (25-2-1, 17 KOs).

UFC head Dana White cited as an example to young Americans the character possessed by fighters from the team of the organization’s former lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

“Khabib’s team could probably come and take over this country right now because this generation is such a bunch of pricks.” Yes, that’s for sure. Yeah, when you look at some of these people in other countries… some of these guys are from the Middle East, from Russia… they have a different mentality, they were born different, with a different mentality. We become soft and weak. Every 10 years we get softer and weaker,” White said on the Full Send Podcast.

Nurmagomedov completed his professional career in 2020. He remained undefeated in the Octagon, where he scored 29 victories in 29 fights.
