CHRIS ALGIERI'S FURY vs. USYK PREVIEW ANALYSIS

"This is a tremendous fight with incredible historical significance. There hasn't been an undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis beat Evander Holyfield in 2000. Boxing's World Heavyweight Champion has always and will always be recognized as the baddest man on the planet.

"That being said. A win for Fury solidifies him as one of the greatest heavyweights of the modern era. Potentially being the guy that no one in history could ever beat. He is the biggest, most athletic heavyweight in history of the sport, 6’9 280 lbs, with athletic head movement, the heart of a lion, and competitive spirit unmatched to date is a recipe for an all time great.

"A win by Usyk locks him in as the best cruiserweight of all time as well as one of the best heavyweights of current times. It would be hard to argue, based on his accomplishments, to see it any other way -- Olympic gold medalist, unified cruiserweight world champion, unified heavyweight world champion, undefeated. What else is there to be done at that point?

"As different as these two men are from their appearance, to their styles, to the way they operate in every aspect of their lives, we have two men who share a commonality. They are undefeated and here to make history!"
