If Terry O'Connor is here 119-46 to Chisora !

Usyk has won this 2-3 rounds anything else is disgusting.

I think what this fight has shown is that the better and bigger Heavyweight's could walk down Usyk. He will need all his technical skills and footwork to do a job on the likes of AJ or Wilder never mind Fury.

I would struggle to find more than 4 rounds for Chisora but I could see how a judge might disagree.

Usyk has fluid movement but he's not as big as AJ, Wilder and Fury nor does he have their power.

Beats Wilder for me, not sure about Joshua, and he needs to take out a restraining order against Fury.

Fair play to Chisora. Before the fight I wouldn't have thought he'd make the distance, it was early rounds or nothing. He made it.

Usyk, hmmm... he was in control, but never really wobbled Chisora, not sure whether it was his hand, or didn't go the extra gear or simply didn't have the power at this weight.

The likes of Fury and Joshua would have no trouble with Usyk or Chisora. Neither would really hurt them

It's been good to see this fight but the gulf between the best and those lower down is large

I said to my dad earlier Usyk might be too small for HW Fury/Joshua.

I think styles wise that Joshua might still be a good fight for him. He made Chisora miss with some wild stuff and AJ does have a tendency to punch himself out. Also Joshua wants to fight at a more comfortable distance.

Fury would be too big, too strong and too ugly. He'd just lean on him in a corner and shut him down.

Usyk did okay, nothing unexpected. He'd win all 12 rounds against Wilder. I'm in the minority but I think Usyk could beat Fury in a tactical snoozefest. He'd struggle against Joshua though IMO.

Coldwell like Bellew talking shit saying Chisora won.

I wish people like this would shut up Usyk won.

Do I back Usyk to beat Fury/AJ no I dont but like he said he has not boxed for a year.

That's a fair point. I've been thinking of this while watching various footy matches, the concentration and overall level has definitely dipped.

AJ and Fury will take his head clean off, what this fight has shown is that there is going to be no point or interest in seeing Usyk vs Joshua enforced by the WBO mandatory in place of Joshua vs Fury for a undisputed unification. What does Usyk really think he can bring to a Joshua fight to win? If Joshua comes in light Usyk is still not knocking him out and he isn't out boxing a light Joshua. If Joshua comes in heavy he's still not out boxing Joshua to a points decision, Joshua will jab his head off on the outside not letting him get close and he has no chance in hell at knocking out a heavy Joshua he will be knocked out himself the first clean punch Joshua lands.

It's a joke that Usyk will be holding an all out heavyweight undisputed unification fight hostage for a WBO mandatory from Cruiserweight. The only reason I'd want to see Usyk vs Joshua is to see Joshua knock him out and send him back to cruiserweight but I'd rather see Joshua vs Fury and hopefully the WBO agree and apply the unifications trump mandatories.

He doesn't beat Wilder not a chance, he couldnt even avoid and got hit by some really slow hooks which Chisora threw from miles away there's no way he's avoiding Wilders fast, powerful straight right hand for 12 rounds straight.

Usyk has the skills no doubt. I'd just worry about the size of Joshua and Fury.

Chisora is big in weight, but very slow and Usyk actually a bit taller.

But the other two are giants, I think Usyk could struggle against them. He's a quality operator though.

Usyk won that fight but he isn't ready for AJ, Tyson or even Wilder yet.

Just love watching boxers like Usyk. His footwork is unreal. The best bit was Sky pretending Delboy was in the fight whilst the highlights showed Usyk landing shot after shot.

Usyk will cause any heavyweight problems because he is technically brilliant.
One thing does need to be said: in the post-Benitez era, there was media-led clamour (but also some politicking going on at the club) to make the club more English; the idea being that the club had lost the very essence of what it means to be ‘Liverpool’. Guillem Ballague 18/11/10

Usyk will cause any heavyweight problems because he is technically brilliant.

He just won't though will he there are heavyweights who are technically as good if not better especially Fury, besides Fury Joshua is very sound technically as well whilst both of them have a massive size, reach, weight and power advantage, he won't cause Fury any problems and he won't be able to cause Joshua anywhere near enough problems. He can dance around a bit and throw some nice combinations which may or may not land but at the end of the day there's not enough power there and as soon as Joshua touches him it's lights out and he wasn't exactly untouchable against massive slow looping Chisora hooks, what's he going to do just dance round Joshua not being able to get close enough to land anything? Joshua will jab his head off on the outside and even if he does manage to get inside without taking too much damage from Joshua's jab what's he going to do when Joshua rips the uppercut straight through him? I don't see how he has any kind of chance against any of the top 3 and as such the belts and a undisputed unification by any of those should not be held to ransom by Usyk based on achievements not even from the same weight division.

Lets see what he can do against Whyte, Povetkin, Parker, Ruiz and other top 10 heavyweights etc then he can say he deserves a shot.

Brutal from Tank. It was clear from early that Leo didn't have the power to discourage him. He is gonna take some shifting at 135lbs.

"The Tank" is a nickname that just does not belong on a 135lber. Still, what a finish. Wonder what Ryan Garcia thought of that.
