    As a Spong fan I hope he doesnt take this fight, he will get finished. He should be fighting at cruiserweight.

    Fought some absolute giants in k1. Dude has balls of steel. I remember first seeing him in a 8 man, won all 3 fights in a combined 5-6 mins that was at MW iirc.

    Spong has no business in the ring with Usyk. Its really pathetic if this is actually the best opponent they can find for the guy.

    Ffs, we want a real sized HW to finally judge Usyk’s adaption there. Nit a blown up semi retired kickboxer with an anderson shin.

    I hope Spong gets the fight so he can get a decent payday. The dude has skills and is fighting for peanuts in Mexico and Latin America. Usyk will tool him, but Usyk is going to tool any of the heavies mentioned for this fight. Get that $ Spong and please get signed with a real promoter!

    The only silver lining here is that he should win quickly and be ready to go again in 3-4 weeks. Or maybe for December in Saudi Arabia.

    I swear there's a different "front runner" every week. Do people just use the phrase to get more likes and/Or retweets?

    No way, this is a fucking joke! Spong isn't even a proper heavy weight, Usyk will obliterate him. It will be like Floyd vs Mcgregor all over again.

    Next week they'll say he's lining up a fight with Mickey Rourke. This is just getting annoying. Would have rather seen him still active at CW actually giving guys he hadn't fought a shot. Dorticos could have made it interesting. Instead he's lined up to fight TBA and has been on the shelf.

    This is symptomatic of HW. No one wants to lose to a CW who can box moving up and give up their progression up the ladder to getting a fight with the big 3 (4? if you include Ruiz). No one is willing to be Usyk's stepping stone because none of them think they can beat him. Up until this announcement offered opponents haven't been too bad compared to when Holyfield debuted against Tillis a small HW who had many losses against anyone half decent. Usyk is (was) looking to step in against opponents with just a handful of losses. But it's not his fault if no fucker has the balls to fight him.

    This doesn't yell us about how Usyk will look at HW but it's taking so long for him to fight it may as well be someone like this just to get the ball rolling.
