Oleksandr Usyk will now fight higher, bigger, heavier Heavyweight giants. Statistics prove that he is already a very dangerous person for Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua who have been dominating the Heavyweight.

The untouched explorer-class champion made his heavyweight debut on Saturday night in Chicago, United States. He is scheduled to face Chazz Witherspoon. If he had previously fought in the 90.7Kg class, at the time of weighing in his debut in Heavyweight, Friday, Usyk was paving the way to become the third boxer to ever become world champion in two prestigious divisions.

Here follows Usyk’s physical comparison with Wilder, Joshua, and Fury. The three rulers of the Heavyweight are now ideal opponents for Usyk, who was once the King of the Explorer Class.


Anthony Joshua

The long-term target targeted by Usyk in the Heavyweight is Joshua, whose ambition is to get back his world championship belt from Andy Ruiz Jr. in a December 7 duel in Saudi Arabia.

Like Ruiz Jr., Usyk has a high posture like Joshua. But Usyk doesn’t believe Joshua has a problem against smaller opponents. “I don’t think that’s the reason (that Joshua lost to Ruiz Jr),” ​​Usyk told Sky Sports.

“There is a common problem. It doesn’t matter whether your opponent is tall or short. It doesn’t matter whether you fight with a 2m tall man, or 1.80m men,” the Ukrainian boxer continued.


Andy Ruiz Jr

Usyk is taller than Ruiz Jr. But, Ruiz Jr. was the biggest among the big men who weighed 121kg when defeated Joshua. With a heavier body, Ruiz Jr. can maximize his punch harder. Usyk is a mandatory challenger for the WBO belt and hopes to fight it next year against the winner Ruiz Jr. with Joshua.


Deontay Wilder

The WBC Heavyweight champion’s statistics gave Usyk a problem in contrast to Ruiz Jr. Wilder is one of the lighter Weight weight boxers, 101kg. He was 14kg lighter than Fury when they fought first. But the height and range of Wilder’s hand is his X factor – he is much longer than Usyk. Does Usyk have the speed to deal with it?


Tyson Fury

The biggest of the big men – Fury is the tallest giant, with the longest range, and often the heaviest of his rivals. He weighs 115kg, but in every way, he is much bigger than Usyk.

Evander Holyfield and David Haye are the only boxers to become a world-class explorer and heavyweight. Both have a height and range that is identical to Usyk (190cm and 198cm). “I never made it to the division, I just didn’t lose weight,” Haye told Sky Sports.

Holyfield, before Haye, weighed less than 95kg when he won the heavyweight title against Buster Douglas in 1990 and was under 100kg when he defeated Mike Tyson. Haye and Holyfield finally emerged against the biggest of the big men, Klitschko and Lewis. Can Usyk avoid the same fate?
