Fury is seen as a favorite going into any match-up, given his height, reach and weight advantage.
Fury is the favorite at (-250), while Usyk’s odds stand at (+200). However, in Usyk, Fury would be facing a southpaw that is hard to hit.
The Ukrainian managed to beat Anthony Joshua back-to-back, despite being the smaller man.
And Fury has previously admitted that his hardest-ever fight was against Steve Cunningham, a natural cruiserweight, who did put down the ‘Gypsy King’ before being stopped.
Despite this being the case, Holyfield has backed Fury to come out victorious, given his versatility.
“No! I think Tyson Fury has shown that he is a great fighter. Out of all the fighters, he’s the one that has been able to make adjustments, and making adjustments makes you better.
“The fact of the matter is, ain’t nobody has beat him! I don’t know [how Usyk could beat Fury]. Ain’t nobody did it and, until somebody does it, who’s to say anybody can? If nobody has beat you, then you ain’t shown you can lose,” Holyfield
