British professional boxer Tyson Fury says Oleksandr Usyk is too small to compete with him in their undisputed heavyweight world title fight.

35-year-old Fury is the WBC champion, while Ukraine’s Usyk holds the WBA, WBO and IBF belts.

Fury says former cruiserweight champion Usyk will be “found wanting” in their unification bout on May 18 in Saudi Arabia.
