And former WBO cruiserweight champion Johnny Nelson thinks Fury, 35, will use all the tricks in the trade.

He told Boxing News 24/7: “I can see Fury, if he’s getting outboxed and is losing the fight, reverting to type and him fighting – not boxing – but fighting.

“It’s what he knows, he’s a fighting man.

“I see a close fight, with Fury very possibly using the dark arts in there.

“He did it in the [Francis] Ngannou fight, and if he finds himself under pressure, he will revert to type I think.”

Tony Bellew has claimed Usyk is a better pound-for-pound boxer.

But Nelson thinks Fury’s sheer size could cause problems for the Ukrainian technician, 37.

The pundit, 57, added: “I do agree with Tony.

“But the thing is, Fury is so much bigger, so Usyk has to deal with what he’s facing.

“You can’t put that drama on it, saying what if they were both the same size when they’re not.

“Fury is so much bigger and Usyk will have to deal with that.”

Fury has shed the pounds in the build-up to the fight – perhaps looking to combat his rival’s speed.
