Tyson Fury & Oleksandr Usyk Top Wins

Let’s take a look at Fury and Usyk’s combined top 10 career wins.

10. Usyk UD-12 vs. Głowacki (2016)

Huck or Głowacki was always going to make up the 10th spot – I mean, no one has ever formed a “Top 9 xxx” piece have they...

But despite going to the scorecards, Glowacki had more in the tank in 2016 than Huck did in 2017, with the Pole coming into this WBO cruiserweight title fight unbeaten in 24 outings.

Usyk dominated a one-sided fight on away soil in Poland, kick-starting his road-run of terror, eventually winning in the USA, Germany, Latvia, Russia and the UK.

9. Fury KO-11 vs. Wilder 3 (2021)

Wilder’s tumbling down the heavyweight rankings in recent years perhaps denigrates Fury’s wins over him to a certain extent, but after getting humiliated 20 months prior, Wilder was able to ask a few more questions of the “Gypsy King”, knocking him down twice in an entertaining trilogy fight.

Fury probably underestimated the sticking power of Wilder in this money-spin of a trilogy, but was still able to get the job done in 11 rounds.

8. Fury TKO-6 vs. Whyte (2022)

Listen, we’ve certainly learnt over the years that Dillian Whyte isn’t a killer in the heavyweight division, but Fury’s workman-like win over his compatriot in 2022 was just what the doctor ordered during a title reign.

Fury was disciplined, picked the right shots at the right time and did what heavyweight champions should always aim to do – close the show.

This contest followed on from back-to-back wins over Wilder and in some ways emphasised the power that Fury had honed following adjustments to his training camps.

7. Usyk UD-12 vs. Joshua 2 (2022)

Joshua came closer in this one, but Usyk still didn’t look close to relinquishing his crown to the Briton.

Joshua showed real improvements in his willingness to impart some of his natural power and explosiveness on Usyk, but the champion was once again far too quick and savvy to be lured into a brawl.

6. Usyk MD-12 vs. Briedis (2018)

Usyk shouldn’t be docked points for the manner that he edged this MD on the scorecards.

Both men underlined why they were at the very top of the cruiserweight division that night in Riga, Latvia, and despite the fight not really catching fire in a traditional sense, it was one for the purists to purr over.

This was the toughest fight of Usyk’s career to date which leaves its ranking floating in the middle, and one that he learned a hell of a lot from in the pro game.

5. Usyk KO-8 vs. Bellew (2018)

Tony Bellew, perhaps, now suffers from recency bias when adjudging his credentials on the world stage.

The “Bomber” wasn’t exactly a killer at cruiserweight, but he was the former WBC champion and deserving of his shot against Usyk having gone unbeaten at cruiserweight and re-retiring David Haye (twice) in eye-catching, yet cringeworthy wins.

Bellew started the fight fairly comfortably, but as soon as Usyk found his range it was goodnight in savage form. A sickening knockout of Bellew on away soil saw the end to Usyk’s cruiserweight career as he set his sights on heavier targets.

4. Usyk UD-12 vs. Gassiev (2018)

A Ukrainian fighting away in Russia wrote a strong narrative back in 2018 even if it pre-dated Vladimir Putin’s full-scale invasion of Usyk’s homeland four years later.

Rounding off a successful World Boxing Super Series at cruiserweight, Usyk bullied, picked-off and routed Gassiev to unify the division and rubber-stamped his dominance of a talented division.

What was considered a competitive final pre-fight, soon turned into one of the most comprehensive performances on this list.

3. Usyk UD-12 vs. Joshua 1 (2021)

Anthony Joshua was the betting favourite coming into their opening duel in 2021, but as the rounds slowly ticked by inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, it soon became apparent that Usyk’s style as a heavyweight was all wrong for the Londoner.

Usyk cruised to a UD — with official cards tighter than expected after gauging ringside reaction — and in the process became a two-weight world champion.

2. Fury TKO-7 vs. Wilder 2 (2020)

Under the new tutelage of SugarHill Steward, Fury produced close to a punch-perfect display against Wilder, dropping and stopping the “Bronze Bomber” inside seven destructive rounds.

This newly-found front foot aggression added another string to the Fury bow and crowned him ruler of the division following the controversial ending to their draw two years prior.

1. Fury UD-12 vs. Klitschko (2015)

Chalk this one up as a snooze-fest all you like, but Tyson Fury did the unthinkable against Klitschko in 2015 ending his 11-year, 22-fight unbeaten reign in front of a hostile Dusseldorf crowd.

In the years leading up to this contest Fury had been dropped by Steve Cunningham and Neven Pajkic and his only notable wins had come twice against Dereck Chisora and a 17-3 Christian Hammer.
