Oleksander Usyk wants the much-anticipated fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury to end with them both lay flat on the canvas.

This came ahead of his own awaited fight against Tony Bellew on Saturday in a bid to defend his four titles and undisputed reign in the cruiserweight division.

After, he is expected to brace the heavyweight division like his opponent Bellew did in his infamous rivalry with David Haye.

Usyk is reportedly after a very different heavyweight opponent, however, in the form of Anthony Joshua. 

Wilder and Fury go toe-to-toe on December 1 at the Staples Centre in Los Angles in what is said to be the decider to have the chance to fight against the undefeated Joshua.

Both have expressed a deep intent to fight the British champion.

Usyk, though, wanting a fight against the champion himself, isn’t hoping for a winner.

He told Seconds Out: “I wish they both punch each other at the same time and fall down together.”

Admittedly, Usyk is looking forward to what should be an historic occasion.

“Anyway, its going to be a spectacular fight and I’m keen to watch it.”

He continued to compare the fighters to Joshua.

“I like Joshua better because he doesn’t speak that much.

“I actually don’t like boxers too much.”

Undoubtedly, Usyk has risen through the boxing ranks to now establish himself as one of the best boxers across all the divisions.

The undisputed champion has also become one of the most feared men in the entire sport.

But not to Bellew. A man, who it would seem, does not understand the word fear.

Whilst Bellew still believes in the ability of the Ukrainian, he does not anticipate a loss on what may turn out to be the Evertonian's last fight of his career.
