Klitschko Tells Usyk To Target Fury’s Cut

Oleksandr Usyk has been told to target Tyson Fury’s cut in their fight on May 18. 

That is according to Wladimir Klitschko. Fury vs. Usyk takes place for the Undisputed Heavyweight Championship on Saturday. Fury has shown a weakness in suffering from cuts. He suffered a huge cut against Otto Wallin in 2018. Blood was pouring out extensively.

The fight was controversially allowed to continue, with Fury winning a unanimous decision. Fury vs. Usyk was set for February 17, only for Fury to withdraw after a cut in sparring over his right eye. Fury’s camp has no worries about the cut, but if Usyk lands in the area, it could open up. However, Fury rises to the biggest occasion.

He beat Klitschko in 2015 via a unanimous decision to become the Unified Heavyweight Champion. Klitschko failed to figure out Fury, as he was outboxed in 12 rounds. While Klitschko’s advice may help, he ultimately lost to Fury. Usyk will bear the cut in mind but cannot afford to rely solely on that if he wants to come out victorious.
