Usyk’s Former Coach Predicts Victory in Fury Rematch

Title: Usyk’s Upcoming Victory: A New Strategy

Former trainer James Ali Bashir is optimistic about Oleksandr Usyk’s chances of beating Tyson Fury in their rematch on December 21 at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Bashir believes that WBA/WBC/WBO heavyweight champion Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs) will bring a fresh approach to the fight, addressing the shortcomings from his previous encounter with Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs) on May 18. According to Bashir, Usyk will enter the ring with a brand new set of skills.

“I am confident that we will see a different Oleksandr Usyk in the rematch. He has been working on his weaknesses and will present a whole new challenge for Tyson Fury,” said coach James Ali Bashir in an interview with Secondsout about the highly anticipated rematch.

Bashir went on to highlight Fury’s physical decline, attributing it to age and lifestyle factors. He pointed out that Fury, who will turn 36 soon, has been affected by his indulgent lifestyle as a wealthy individual, resulting in a decline in his performances in recent fights.

Discussing Usyk’s underestimated power, Bashir emphasized that Usyk is a strong fighter with the ability to hurt his opponents. He recalled Usyk’s impactful punches in the previous fight with Fury and asserted that Usyk’s strength should not be underestimated.

Looking ahead to the rematch, Bashir suggested that Usyk would adopt a different approach, focusing on power shots and combination punching to exploit Fury’s weaknesses. He expressed confidence in Usyk’s ability to adapt quickly and predicted that his aggressive strategy could pose a challenge for Fury.

In conclusion, Bashir believes that Usyk’s evolution and strategic changes will give him an edge in the upcoming rematch, setting the stage for a thrilling showdown in Riyadh.
