AI predicts Tyson Fury will beat Oleksandr Usyk on points in undisputed heavyweight title fight


ChatGPT has predicted Tyson Fury will defeat Oleksandr Uysk via points in their undisputed heavyweight title fight in Saudi Arabia.

After analysing the strengths and weaknesses of both fighters, the AI model settled on the prediction that Fury will go the full 12 rounds with his Ukrainian foe and clinch all four of the major heavyweight titles, as well as the Ring Magazine belt.

Tyson Fury

  • Physical Attributes: Fury is significantly taller (6’9″) with a longer reach (85″) than Usyk (6’3″, 78″ reach). This can be a crucial factor in keeping Usyk at bay with jabs and maintaining distance.
  • Style: Fury is known for his unorthodox style, impressive footwork, and defensive skills. He can switch stances, making him unpredictable.
  • Experience and Power: Fury has demonstrated his ability to adapt to different opponents, as seen in his fights against Deontay Wilder. He combines power with technical prowess, which makes him a formidable opponent.

Oleksandr Usyk

  • Technical Skills: Usyk is a master technician with exceptional footwork, speed, and ring IQ. His movement and ability to control the pace of the fight are key elements of his success.
  • Experience at Heavyweight: While Usyk has less experience in the heavyweight division compared to Fury, his victories against Derek Chisora and Anthony Joshua showcase his ability to handle larger opponents.
  • Stamina and Adaptability: Usyk’s conditioning and ability to maintain a high work rate throughout the fight are significant advantages. He’s known for his endurance and strategic mid-fight adjustments.

Potential Outcomes

  1. Fury’s Advantages:
    • Reach and Size: Fury could utilize his height and reach to keep Usyk at a distance, using his jab effectively to control the fight.
    • Power: If Fury can land heavy shots, especially early in the fight, he could disrupt Usyk’s rhythm and possibly secure a knockout.
  2. Usyk’s Advantages:
    • Speed and Agility: Usyk’s superior footwork and speed could enable him to navigate Fury’s reach and land effective combinations.
    • Technique and Endurance: Usyk could outlast Fury, using his technical skills to accumulate points and potentially win by decision.

Prediction

Given the strengths and weaknesses of both fighters, this matchup could go either way. However, considering Fury’s physical advantages and his ability to adapt to different styles, he might have a slight edge.

Fury’s reach and size, combined with his boxing IQ and experience in the heavyweight division, could give him the tools to outpoint or potentially stop Usyk. On the other hand, if Usyk can effectively neutralise Fury’s reach and impose his own game plan, he has a solid chance of winning by decision.

Final Prediction: Tyson Fury wins by decision, despite the technical skills and stamina of Usyk. This fight promises to be a highly competitive and tactical bout, showcasing the best of heavyweight boxing.
