  • Howabout 50 year old former contender Firat Arslan ( Egypt), on a 12 fight unbeaten streak, with no answer.? I wonder Why??? Dude fights 4× a year perpetually!

  • A fight against Tyrone Spong is not a bad choice for Usyk to taste the waters at HW in the professional field. Spongo is a battle tested warrior with a more than a decent martial arts career, who is undefeated in his boxing campaign. Spong is a real hard puncher with a poor ring generalship. I spect Usyk dissecting him the same way a consummated butcher does his job. Usyk by KOT before 10

  • Tyrone is not the bum you meke him out to be , hardest hitter probably in division, and very good against lefties. should be interesting and a victory would not surprise seeing Usyk is moving up .

  • iirc Spong is not a natural heavyweight and he has a bum leg. watch his fight against a true heavyweight kickboxer in Alistair Overeem (K-1 I believe) to understand why he does not stand a chance… garbage fight
