In a recent interview, former world champion boxer Shawn Porter expressed strong doubts about the possibility of a much-anticipated boxing match between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury. Porter, whose insights into the world of boxing have been honed by his own experiences in the ring, suggests that Fury, the British champion, may be unwilling to risk his title by stepping into the ring with the Ukrainian boxer Usyk.

Porter's Skepticism

Porter's opinion is not unfounded. Both Fury and Usyk have proven themselves in their respective careers, with each boxer holding impressive records. However, Porter believes that the stakes associated with a match of this magnitude may deter Fury from committing to a fight. He also expressed similar doubts about a potential showdown between David Benavidez and Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.

Despite Benavidez's dominance in the super middleweight division and being widely regarded as one of the top three pound-for-pound boxers, Porter still believes a bout with Canelo is unlikely. His reasoning? The risk factor. Porter suggests that both Fury and Canelo, who have already achieved so much in their boxing careers, may be hesitant to put their reputations on the line. According to Porter, Canelo has accomplished even more than Fury, which may further dissuade him from accepting a fight with Benavidez.

The comments were reported by Boxing News 24/7, which also noted that a promoter had previously stated that the Usyk-Fury fight would happen as scheduled. However, with Porter's comments causing a stir in the boxing world, it remains to be seen whether these high-profile matches will indeed take place. For now, boxing fans around the world can only wait in anticipation and hope that Porter's predictions prove incorrect.
