By Scott Gilfoid: Eddie Hearn says Oleksander Usyk (16-0, 12 KOs) will be making his own heavyweight debut on May 18, potentially against Alexander Povetkin, Joseph Parker or Luis ‘King Kong’ Ortiz. For some purpose, Hearn is mentioning Ortiz (30-1, 26 KOs) despite the fact that he’s scheduled to fight Christian Hammer (24-5, 14 KOs) on March 2 at the Barclays Center at Brooklyn, New York. It’s possible that Hearn is using Ortiz’s without serious aim, but as a way to growing attention from boxing fans. Ortiz’s name is frequently thrown out from Hearn and his Matchroom stable fighter Dillian Whyte. It appears to be described as a ritual together with Whyte and Hearn where they cite rsquo & Ortiz ;s fights, but then never use him.
It’ll maintain America,” Hearn stated to Fighthype roughly Oleksander Usyk’s next struggle. “we ’re considering Povetkin, Parker along with Ortiz. Using all the Dillian Whyte April card, it appears like it’will be, what is confirmed at the O2, we got Povetkin,” ParkerWe got all those guys in the combination. We got to see who wishes to take on Usyk. He’s up for fighting [Luis] Ortiz, [Joseph] Parker, [Alexander] Povetkin, dozens of guys,” Hearn explained.
We know that & rsquo; s not likely to happen, although the boxing fans will love to watch Usyk fight Ortiz second. Ortiz is scheduled to its Hammer fight. Hearn isn’t likely to wait a fight between Ortiz and Usyk. That will leave Ortiz less than two weeks to recover from his fight with Hammer, for him to organize Usyk, and rsquo & that; s perhaps not time. There would still be a danger of Ortiz and that would put the Usyk fight.
So what we’re looking at is Povetkin and Parker as competitions for rsquo & Usyk;s next fight on May 18. It’s uncertain which Hearn of those 2 names just throws around without serious aim.
“That’s he wants. I’d say go a little bit easier on his very first fight out of this way, but those are the people he’s calling , and I figure that’s why folks love him too far,” Hearn explained.
Usyk, 32, is looking to show the boxing world that he deserves a title shot against IBF/WBA/WBO heavy weight winner Anthony Joshua in the place of having it directed at him on a silver dish because of him being among Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing fighters that are stable. You’t got to enjoy rsquo & Usyk;s attitude. Usyk isn’t. He wants Povetkin,” Parker or Ortiz fights even though I’m not too sure about if he wants Ortiz or not. That’s Hearn saying that, maybe not Usyk. Which might be merely Hearn babbling wanting to get the boxing public to focus on Usyk the way that is easy. By throwing Dave Allen in using Usyk in his very first fight the fans will likely be disappointed when Hearn does the bait and switch. That might be an one that is utterly predictable, although an awful fight. Usyk’s last fight was one of Hearn’s most fighters in Tony Bellew. Rather than Hearn placing Usyk in with a few of those cruiserweights in the branch such as Mairis Briedis, Krzysztof Glowacki or Yunier Dorticos, he set him with Bellew. The outcomes have been predictable. After appearing to carry him to the very first seven weeks usyk knocked out Bellew from the round.
The fight has been filled from Whyte up with fouling, and ignored calls. If you take away the discounted telephone by Lewis from the second round in which he gave Whyte credit for a false knockdown, which in reality was a head-butt, after which variable in all the fouls from Dillian which have to have led in point deductions, Parker would have been a clear winner. If Whyte and Parker fought each other a second time, what could change? What happens when the officiating is the same as the first fight In the event the re match is going to take place while in britain? Is Parker currently going to win under those circumstances? In case rsquo & Parker; s recent performance against Alexander Flores we can observe a actual. Past December parker really roughed Flores within their fight up. He may observe a no-holds barred type of fight where the rules go out the window from the word go, if Whyte starts in where he left off with the fouling of Parker.
