TYSON FURY vs Oleksandr Usyk has the capability of being up there as one of the best heavyweight fights of all time, says Dave Allen.
The Brit is hoping to land a unification fight with Usyk, who beat Anthony Joshua for the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles in July.
And should the pair meet at some point in the future, the fight has the capability of being one of the best heavyweight fights in history – up there with Muhammad Ali vs Joe Frazier.
Usyk’s former sparring partner Dave Allen told talkSPORT: “I believe the only man that is capable of beating Oleksandr Usyk is Tyson Fury.
“And the only man capable of beating Tyson Fury is Oleksandr Usyk.
“So, for me, it’d be the best heavyweight fight probably since Muhammad Ali vs Joe Frazier.”
The two heavyweight champs had a friendly meet at Vasily Lomachenko’s bout with Richard Commey.
Fury and Usyk shared a high-five before embracing and exchanging a few words.
Before Fury and Usyk can pencil in a date for a unification fight, both men have two Brits to get through.
Fury has been ordered to take on Dillian Whyte, and Usyk is discussing a rematch with Joshua.
Promoter Eddie Hearn revealed he was in Dubai recently to discuss terms of Usyk vs Joshua 2.
He told iFL TV: “Been travelling around, obviously last few weeks around the world.
“This week, we’re getting ready to have discussions with different countries about upcoming heavyweight contests.
“Found myself in the Middle East and then got invited to this event with people like Roberto Duran, Oleksandr Usyk to catch up with.”
