Ukrainian Usyak displayed every ounce of his classic southeastern style when he overtook Anthony Joshua at the end of September.

And Fury made an equally astonishing performance in his trilogy match with Deontay Wilder, which he won by knockout in round 11.


Debate has raged since then as to which of the two unbeaten heavyweight champions would win.

But there’s no doubt, according to readers of SunSport, 91.1 percent are in favor of the Fury.

With Usyk an astonishing mere 8.9 percent of the side, such was the quality of his win over AJ.

But Fury’s ability to get off the deck twice in one round later for Keo Wilder is proof of why he’s the Division’s No.

Despite the overwhelming majority of votes, the wait for the undisputed king will continue.


Joshua, 31, has invoked his right to an immediate rematch with 34-year-old Usyk, meaning Fury, 33, will fight the winner between 33-year-old Dillian White and 30-year-old Otto Wallin.

But his father John explosively urged him to retire if he could not unite with Usyk, fearing that a contender like White would not inspire him.

57-year-old John said talkSPORT: “Will Dillian White tackle Deontay Wilder? No.

“So why would I want to put him there with my son and kick him out?

“At the end of the day, he just got knocked down by a 42 year old man” [Alexander Povetkin].

“Tyson can’t lift fights like this for him. He won’t be able to raise his game because it’s not big enough.

“And he goes out there with a slack attitude and you don’t see the best of Tyson Fury. You only see the best of Tyson when he’s up against the best.

“His kind was a challenge and he’s in a big fight. To me, I’ve told him, ‘Don’t be the same or upset.'”
