“Normally I face this kind of plan, every fight,” Usyk told Sky Sports. “If you want to hit the target, you need to see the target, because he can throw as much punches as you can, but you need to land them into the target.”

But Usyk has admitted that Chisora has already earned his respect, even before the Olympic gold medalist turned professional, as he watched the Brit’s memorable battles with Vitali Klitschko and Haye.

“When I was an amateur, I was watching his fights as a heavyweight, with Klitschko, David Haye, and I was thinking ‘wow’, such great guys somewhere far away, and now I’m going to box one of those great guys myself.”

Chisora for some good time is under David Haye and he has greatly improved for the last fights including a fabulous stoppage of David Price.
