I doubt he would even be making much for it to be honest. Defo nothing like the reported $12m he is said to be making through this deal. Lesnar gets $12m a year, about $500k a match.

This is too cynical a match up to work in terms of profile. One arguement and now they are fighting.  ::)

I don't think he was a massive puncher at CW to be fair.  But people seem to talk about him like he's a midget when he's a big guy at 6'3".  Taller than Ruiz for example.  And he weighed in at 215lbs which is heavier than Wilder normally is.

My one concern with him is he seems to take unnecessary shots sometimes.  I'd probably back him against the winner of Ruiz/AJ and Fury as well, but I could see him getting caught with something daft from Wilder.

Ruiz is the smallest of the  big guns  of the division. Usyk is used to be at par with his opponent, while in the HW he will be below either on height (not a problem), reach (more of a problem) and/or weight.

I totally agree with you when you write that he takes unnecessary shots, and those shots can hurt in the HW division. Will he have enough legs to escape those shots, as a Fury did against Wilder? I am not sure: even with good legs, you need to have something to throw.

I am looking forward to see more of him in this division!
What do Fernando Hierro, Carles Puyol, Philipp Lahm, Andres Iniesta, Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos and Jordan Henderson share in common?

Watched a documentary called Facing Ali last night with the likes of Foreman, Frazier, Norton etc talking about their fights with The Greatest. I don't think any one of them was over 16st at their peaks and yet they'd all wipe the floor with the current crop of heavyweights. I think you're right about Usyk and I expect him to have a title belt or 2 by this time next year.
I keep making this point. Size doesn't mean all that much (I mean a few pounds and inches here and there) when you are light years ahead of the opposition. The younger slimmer version of Foreman would be 'small' by today's standards but would bulldoze the division. Ditto Sonny Liston to be honest.

If Usyk has the punch resistance, he will win at least one, if not all, of the HW belts.

RIP

Boxer Patrick Day has died at the age of 27 - four days after sustaining head injuries in a fight against Charles Conwell.

The American was put in a coma with a serious brain injury on Saturday after he was knocked out in the 10th round of his super welterweight bout in Chicago.

Promoter Lou DiBella confirmed Day had died on Wednesday "surrounded by his family, close friends and members of his boxing team".

"He was a son, brother, and good friend to many," said a statement.

"Pat's kindness, positivity, and generosity of spirit made a lasting impression with everyone he met."

Day was taken from the ring on a stretcher after the conclusion of the fight on the undercard of Oleksandr Usyk heavyweight victory over Chazz Witherspoon in the US.

Fellow American Conwell, 21, wrote an emotional letter to Day following the fight.

"I never meant this to happen to you, all I wanted to do was win," he said.

"If I could take it all back, I would. No-one deserves this to happen to them."

Is he Wolverine or something? Wow  :o I hope that is true; and I hope the lad wears his seatbelt from now on!

By the way, Usyk makes his heavyweight debut this weekend against Chazz Witherspoon. Witherspoon stepped in on Tuesday because Usyk's original opponent tested positive for drugs  ::) Anyway, should be a nice, soft introduction for him and I would expect a big step up in class in 2020.

Hope he doesn't drink driving again.

Okolie on now. Hopefuly a good match and not a hugfest

Chisora is going to one shot Price in  my opinion, as for the main event. Fcuk knows. I like Taylor, he looks the type that will fight you outside for free if you didn't do it for a living, real spite in his work. Have not seen full fight of Prograis but I hear he is the dog's. Still going for Taylor

Same here. But to win he's going to have to blow Chisora away and that never really happens.

You never know with Chisora though. Sometimes he shows up and is utter shite.
