As far as heavyweight debuts are concerned, Oleksandr Usyk has had a difficult time making the kind of resounding statement many anticipated following a consensus fighter of the year campaign.
Boxing doesn’t get much better than this folks. This is arguably the biggest heavyweight fight in decades and it looks to be the most exciting one since the first time Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury squared off. If you don’t want to miss any of the action live, sign up with ESPN+ to see the Wilder vs Fury 2 PPV.
The first time around, Fury out boxed Wilder in the early rounds before getting fatigued and knocked down in the 12 and final round before shockingly rising back up from the canvas to finish out the fight. It was enough to split the judges and force a draw. This time around, both Fury and Wilder will look to eliminate the judges from the decision with both boxers talking about knockouts.
Take a look below for the preview of the fight, including both Tyson Fury’s record and Deontay Wilder’s record. Here’s how to watch Wilder vs. Fury 2, including live stream information.
Usyk (16-0, 12 KOs), who capped off 2018 by becoming the first four-belt undisputed cruiserweight champion and sending Tony Bellew to retirement via knockout, has seen his much-hyped move up to boxing’s glamour division routinely slowed by injury and happenstance.
A native of Ukraine, the 2012 Olympic gold medalist finally returns Saturday (DAZN, 9 p.m. ET) at Wintrust Arena in Chicago against a late replacement in 38-year-old Chazz Witherspoon (38-3, 29 KOs) who does anything but elicit the idea of danger or hectic competition. Still, Usyk’s assault on the heavyweight division has fans interested due to his lofty intentions after this weekend.
Usyk, a 32-year-old southpaw, certainly brings good size to heavyweight at 6-foot-3 yet the real intrigue will be seeing how his sublime boxing skills mesh with the best in the division considering he’s not known as a huge puncher. The journey to find out that answer has been an arduous one.
Originally, Usyk had talked about moving quick and making a splash by facing someone the caliber of former secondary titleholder Alexander Povetkin. Talks quickly shifted to another durable veteran in Carlos Takam until a torn right biceps injury forced Usyk to pull out of their originally scheduled date of May 25.
Usyk was ultimately forced to settle for Tyrone Spong, a former kickboxing star with power and an unbeaten record, until a failed drug test for the banned substance clomiphene saw him pulled from the fight on Monday. Given the extreme late notice, Witherspoon brings both a name and a decent record as the second cousin of former heavyweight titleholder Tim Witherspoon but not much more.
Although Witherspoon is 8-0 since 2012, the level of opposition he has faced has been dismal. Before that, he lost definitively (twice by knockout and once by disqualification) in the three times he has stepped up in class. Among those defeats was a 2012 TKO loss against Seth Mitchell who ultimately failed his attempt to convert from a college football background to become a serviceable heavyweight.
Usyk kept his words short and sweet when asked about Spong’s failed test during an interview this week with IFL TV, saying, “I don’t even want to talk about this, I think this is very dirty stuff.” He had even less to say about Witherspoon.
“I’m going to say a few words from a bible which says, ‘prepare your horse for the war and winning will come from the God,'” Usyk said.
What Usyk is hoping for is a title shot in his next bout and has been steadfast since he first announced a move to heavyweight that he wants the biggest challenges possible. Although it’s possible he could loom as a candidate to face the winner of the Dec. 7 rematch between Anthony Joshua and unified champion Andy Ruiz Jr. (particularly if Joshua wins given that Usyk fights on DAZN), Usyk would prefer unbeaten WBC champion Deontay Wilder.
This card, being honest, is not the best you’re going to find by any means, and the top two bouts are looking like stay-busy sort of fights for the A-sides. There is danger for any cruiserweight going to heavyweight, but Usyk’s skill level — and the fact he looked diesel at 215 pounds on Friday — should be way too much for Witherspoon, an aged short notice replacement foe who’s been out of the spotlight for the last seven years.
In the co-feature, it’ll be WBA light heavyweight titleholder Dmitry Bivol in action against fringe contender Lenin Castillo. The most well-matched fight on the show is a 140-pound title rematch between Jessica McCaskill and Erica Farias, and we’ll also see several prospects in action, most notably super middleweight Anthony Sims Jr, who takes on Morgan Fitch.
