Lewis predicts Fury's victory over Usyk

Lennox Lewis

Boxing legend Lennox Lewis has predicted that the fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk will be won by Fury. 

The winner of Saturday's superfight in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, will become the first boxer in history to hold all four major world titles. Lewis was the undisputed champion 25 years ago, when he won three world titles. 

"Tyson Fury can win on points", said Lewis on Thursday for "BBC Sport". "He's bigger and with longer arms, great movement. "Both have very good moves, both want to win and it will be an incredible match," Lewis said. 

British Fury is 35 years old and has a record of 34 wins and one draw. 

Meanwhile, Ukrainian Usyk has won all 21 professional bouts and holds the WBA, IBF and WBO titles.
