Tyson Fury has insisted Oleksandr Usyk would not be as challenging an opponent as Derek Chisora, as he prepares for a planned unification fight against the Ukrainian.

The Gypsy King beat Chisora convincingly by third round stoppage in his last fight, and is now turning his attention to Usyk’s heavyweight titles.

They are expected to fight in the early part of 2023, with the Ukrainian setting a deadline of March 4.

Despite potentially losing his titles in the fight, Fury seemed confident, as he told iFL TV: ‘I don’t think it is a tough fight. I don’t think it’s nowhere near as tough as old Del Boy.

‘He will not stand up to those punches that Derek did against me. When I watch the fight between him and Derek, whether people want to admit it or not, it was a 50/50 fight.

‘It might have been 55/45, but it wasn’t a landslide. It wasn’t like he didn’t win a round, like he didn’t against me.’ 

The 34-year-old went on to explain how he felt undefeatable, adding: ‘There’s not a man born that can beat me and I’ll stand and prove it against anybody.

‘I’ve seen people like Usyk many times before, smaller man that come up a weight to fight the heavyweight champion and 99 per cent of the time they get roughed up. 

Usyk moved up weight classes after becoming undisputed cruiserweight with defeats over Tony Bellow and Mairis Briedis. 

Fury went on: ‘You can never underestimate anybody but from where I am in my life at the moment, I would want to take him out quite quickly. 

‘I’d like to get him in there in February, make an example out of him, then give him a rematch at Wembley.’
