Usyk's victory over Fury was not a surprise for Bivol

Dmitry Bivol, WBA light heavyweight champion of the world, commented on the victory of Oleksandr Usyk in the fight with Tyson Fury.

"I didn't see the full fight, because I didn't want to be distracted from the preparation for my fight and waste emotional energy. But of course I will watch it from start to finish in a couple weeks. I expected Usyk to beat Fury. It didn't come as a surprise to me."

The fight between Usyk and Fury took place on May 18 in Riyadh and ended with the victory of the Ukrainian boxer by a split decision of the judges.
