    This doesn't kill Usyk's hype.

    Chisora is 40 and past his best. Bad performance vs the ghost of Chisora, feed Usyk to Wilder or AJ.

    Chisora doesn't look any worse than at any other point in his career tbh. I am not sure when his "best" was meant to be exactly.

    ´He fought my fight´, no he didnt. Certainly didnt.

    Usyk is a slick circeling sniper though. Will it be enough for the big three though?

    Chisora is 36, which isn't that old for a HW, and he's only a couple of years past his peak.

    he should be, but I actually think the last 2-3 years have been his best

    Chisora is a better boxer than Wilder. All Wilder has is power. I wouldn't be surprised by Usyk winning a comfortable decision.

    I really doubt if it would be enough even for a Ruiz or Whyte, Usyk has great footwork, speed, solid conditioning and arguably the best technique at Heavyweight but if he can't get these guys respect, or even threaten them with his punches... Hes not going to fair well for very long at HW. He also put on 0 size for HW he went from 200lb cruiser to a softer 217 HW...He should really focus on putting 10-15lbs of muscle on his ftame and focus on sitting down on his punches more. Heavyweights are bigger now than they used to be, low 230s would be a good weight for him.

    Chisora was landing plenty on Usyk tho. All Wilder needs is one. Usyk isnt great defensively but he can be set up

    He was landing because he can cut the ring off better than Wilder. Wilder has awful footwork and overall boxing skill.

    Since when not being able to KO your opponent means it's a bad fight? Usyk is not a big puncher nor puts a pressure on his opponent, he is a slick boxer, one of the most skilled one in the division, most of his fights will be win by points.

    There are exceptions like Mike Tyson and Joe Frazier, who beat people who weighs 240 lbs, but Usyk doesn't have their punching power probably.

    Still, Usyk is skilled enough to win against almost every HW in the division by outboxing them except for maybe Tyson Fury.
