Mike Tyson expertly breaks down Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk, makes bold prediction

Mike Tyson has expertly broken down the monstrous fight between Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk and given his prediction.

Fury vs. Usyk is set for February 17 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, as the WBC, WBA (super), IBF and WBO world heavyweight titles are on the line.

The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' takes on the unbeaten Ukrainian having been taken the distance by Francis Ngannou last month.

He made a staggering amount of money for his showdown against the former UFC heavyweight champion as he narrowly secured the victory.

Fury has faced off against Usyk ahead of their meeting next year, with 'Iron' Mike breaking down the fight.

He thinks the 'best fighter in the world' Fury will 'overpower' Usyk to become the undisputed world heavyweight champion.

"Hey, we should [not focus on what Fury did against Ngannou], but you have to understand he is still the champion. He made that night a great night. He gave Francis the opportunity and that was just a bad night at the office for him. We all have bad nights, and listen, that was his bad night," the 57-year-old told Fight Hub TV.

"I look forward to that fight [between Fury and Usyk]. That is going to be an interesting fight. I’m going towards Tyson Fury because I think he’s just going to overpower him. He’s going to catch up with him and overpower him.

"I got to go with Fury. I think he’s the best fighter in the world, especially in the heavyweight division. Great fighters lose, great fighters look bad, [but] that doesn’t stop them from being great fighters."
