Deontay Wilder has derided Oleksandr Usyk astoo little to turn into a world heavyweight champion.
Usyk debuts from Chazz Witherspoon, live on Sky Sports Action, until targeting heavyweight honours to add to the cruiserweight title that he captured.
Hes not a threat to me, WBC winner Wilder only told Sky Sports. Hes too small for me. He does lots of movement but that doesnt irritate me.
Book Taylor-Prograis and Chisora-Price
Wilder is just four inches taller than Usyk with a reach advantage. Theyre unbeaten at a joint 58 fights.
If he expands his unbeaten record to 17-0 in Chicago 25, usyk will retain his standing as the challenger to the WBO heavyweight title. That title will be defended by Andy Ruiz Jr from Anthony Joshua on December 7, live on Sky Sports Box Office, also Usyk will expect to fight to the belt.
Tony Bellew, who had been beaten by Usyk year, considers his former competitors best chance at winning a heavyweight title would come against Wilder.
Wilder, and thats an easy response, Bellew said. Do not get me wrong, if Wilder lands on him then its not likely to end well for Usyk, however you can say that about any heavyweight who Wilder lands on.
I just think [Joshua and Tyson Fury] are too large for him. Basically, hes a fighter than most of them, also I comprise Fury in that, but he is just too small to compete for 12 rounds with them. I think that the size of Joshua and Fury are a huge advantage and I dont think it could be conquer by Usyk.
If he was to struggle Andy Ruiz tomorrowthen I believe he would win that struggle by just being himself and doing what he does best. There are only a few men I dont see him winning against, but he is undoubtedly the most skilled fighter in the division and that will always give him a chance.
Wilder first defends his WBC crown and plans a fight.
When asked who his biggest threat is, Wilder told Sky Sports:Myself. I have something Ive been blessed with. It continues from the first – it goes off.
People might think I am fatigued or outside of it but, if you get struck, there are repercussions to be compensated. It is fantastic because I dont even know the potency of my power.
I hold my fiancees hands and she states Baby, you are squeezing me too tight. I am heavy handed.
Im just getting better with my own technique. One thing, out of everything, that Ive been working on is my technique. From point A to point B using speed.
The rate is the electricity but I already have the energy. So when all this comes together, if power and lightning transfers from point A to point B? Bam, baby. Goodnight.
