    even if he wasn't ranked 1. Uysk is a pretty big name even if he is moving up. the move up probably isn't a big deal he'll just not cut as much weight or have to worry has no limit to what he can bulk to

    Spong is going to be fucked in more ways that he can imagine. Not sure he’s getting a decent fight ever again after this.
    But if he somehow won, good for him

    Yup, people that aren't interested in boxing doesn't knows much that happens in boxing world. :(
    Really not only this, some that never used competition gloves believes, that for example KB competition gloves allows feel protected like in walk in the park. Until they used them for heavy bagwork for 5 minutes….of course these, that had cardio for 5 minutes.

    To be fair to Floyd, Spong was about 165 to 180 at the time.

    Usyk KOs him within 3. This isn’t one of those, boxer annihilates non boxers, Tyrone is literally getting KOed

    Well it wasnt a serious statement... but the guy had a lot of talent when he was young and even though he went for a kickbox career his main weapons there were still his boxing. And he hits hard, he was the previous record holder on that punch power measuring device before ngannou broke it. Hes likely going to loose , im not debating that, but hes better then his boxing record tells you. He should try to make it trough all the rounds at least, i cant imagine that would be dramatic for his career if he looses that way. And the guy has fought over 100 kickbox matches so stop the braindamage bs talk hes supposed to get from this match. He has more fighting experience then many boxers out there. You think those flying knees he got from ubereem on his head were good for the brains..... ive seen him giving one to some other kickboxer and that guy didnt wake up for the next 20 minutes.

    Listen. Anybody who is a boxing casual doesn't know who Usyk is, with exception of some of Europe where he gets some news coverage. If you aren't an unbelievable knockout machine, or haven't been top of the game for years then outside the home country people only know who the HW champs are.

    So, to hype up Spong to the public and show his combat sport credentials before the bout should be easy.

    People always gather for big boxing bouts but most people learn who they are watching a few days before when the big news outlets push it.

    Spong is tough.
    Also, anybody saying he isn't a "real" Heavyweight is being silly.
    Was Tyson not a "real" HW? How about 15stone Ali?

    If you fight at HW, you are a HW.

    Literally an amateur vs a professional.


    There's levels to this game, kids. This ain't kickboxing. There's an actual huge talent pool in boxing and Usyk is the absolute elite level.

    No I think Fury will beat Usyk too.

    Gassiev? Lmao. No. Usyk? We'll see but I think Wilder knocks him out.

    You're one of those guys who includes amateur accolades to evaluate pro legacy. 3 rds point fighting scoring is a joke.

    mihai nestor, matteo moduguno, something majidov, joy joyce, erich brechlin, junior fa. Lmao.

    Mairis Briedis real killer there

    Gassiev and Breidis were/are beasts. remember fool everyone had the Usyk vs Gassiev fight as a 50/50 before the fight. It was BRUTAL the way Gassiev broke down and destroyed the very good Dorticos.


    Magomedrasul Majidov = 3 times World championship Gold medalist, Olympic Bronze medalist, Brutal big puncher who has beaten Joshua. The Best Amateur super heavyweight of the last 10 years, beaten a long line of top fighters.

    Joe Joyce - Olympic Silver medalist ( should have been Gold), World championship medalist, very impressive WSB record. Beaten many top names.

    Mihai Nistor - a top 10 super heavyweight for many years, big puncher who KO'd Joshua.

    Usyk just casually went up to super heavyweight and whilst undersized schooled the best super heavyweights in the world!

    You really don't have a clue about Amateur boxing do you if you didn't know who Majidov was lol! Fa & Modugno were decent wins too.

    Lmao. Amateurs = garbage. Where they at?

    There's a reason Usyk started his career at cw and not hw. Now his promoter gives him Spong to start a hype train to fool soccer mom's he's gonna be champ.

    I reckon you might be Dontae himself lol. Usyk is either P4P number 1 or top 3 a. When has a P4P star at cruiserweight ever moved up...- it's rare hence why people expect him to do very well at heavweyight!

    Feel free to tell me what heavyweight prospects are better than Usyk then! cmon give us a laugh,

    So now you're comparing him to prospects? And you just told us he beat the best super heavyweights and now he's a prospect at hw? Already have your excuse for when he loses.
