In a recent interview, trainer Don Charles shared insights on the upcoming Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk bout. Charles believes that Fury’s smothering and grappling tactics will overwhelm Usyk due to his wrestling background, making it challenging for the Ukrainian heavyweight champion to fend off Fury’s relentless pressure.
Usyk’s lack of wrestling skills puts him at a disadvantage when facing Fury’s mauling techniques. Charles predicts that Fury will utilize his unique style, combining striking with smothering, holding, tying up, and leaning on Usyk. He asserts that these tactics will work in Fury’s favor, given Usyk’s boxing-oriented approach.
To counter Fury, Charles advises Usyk to stay on the move, employ his jab effectively, and avoid getting caught in Fury’s clinches. Any attempt by Usyk to land power shots may provide Fury with an opportunity to implement his mauling strategy.
As the highly anticipated fight approaches, fans are eager to see whether Fury’s smothering tactics will secure him victory over Usyk.
