By Tim Smith - 05/14/2024 - No comments

Former WBO junior welterweight champ Chris Algieri is stepping into the ring of live viewer chat. He’s co-hosting with Kevin Iole, the award-winning combat sports journalist, and Dan Canobbio, the podcaster everyone seems to love. They’re doing this during the live stream of the World Heavyweight Championship fight on PPV.COM this Saturday, May 18, starting at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT.

The main event? The undefeated Tyson Fury squaring off against the equally undefeated Oleksandr Usyk. First time since Tyson-Spinks in ’88 that we’ve seen two undefeated heavyweight champs go at it for all the marbles. Whoever wins this one walks away as the first undisputed champ since Lennox Lewis.

This fight’s streaming from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in crystal-clear HD, available to folks in the U.S. and Canada for $69.99. No subscription needed, just the cash.

Now, let’s get to Algieri’s breakdown of the fight:

CHRIS ALGIERI’S FURY vs. USYK PREVIEW ANALYSIS

“This fight’s got historical weight, no question. We haven’t seen an undisputed heavyweight champ since Lennox Lewis took down Evander Holyfield back in 2000. The heavyweight champ has always been seen as the toughest guy around.

“For Fury, winning this fight would cement him as one of the greatest heavyweights of the modern era. The guy’s a beast – 6’9” and 280 lbs with the agility of a cat, a lion’s heart, and an unmatched competitive spirit. You put all that together, you’ve got an all-time great.

“If Usyk wins, he’s not just the best cruiserweight ever but also one of the best heavyweights of our time. He’s got an Olympic gold medal, unified titles in cruiserweight and heavyweight, and an undefeated record.

“These two guys couldn’t be more different – in appearance, in style, in how they live. But they share one thing: they’re undefeated and ready to make history.”
