The legendary former four-division world champion Roy Jones has made a prediction for the rematch between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk, set to take place in December.

"I really don't think Fury can win the rematch. It could happen, but for me, two things became clear in this fight. Usyk realized he can hurt Fury. He knew it before the fight, but now he has understood that he can cause damage to Fury. Now the smaller guy knows he can inflict harm on the bigger one.

Usyk is the favorite in the rematch, and here's the thing: Tyson Fury is a very smart guy and really good at adjusting, but in my humble opinion, Usyk will beat him again.

However, now that Usyk knows he can defeat Fury, he might underestimate him in the rematch. But we all know Fury has been knocked down seven times in his career and has hit the canvas," Jones told Boxing Social.

Usyk defeated Fury by a split decision on May 19, becoming the first undisputed heavyweight champion in 25 years.

It is worth noting that the head of Saudi Arabia's General Entertainment Authority, Turki Al-Sheikh, announced on his X page that the rematch between the fighters will take place in Riyadh on December 21.
