TYSON FURY has battered Oleksandr Usyk in a shock poll with fans comprehensively backing the Gypsy King.

Ukrainian Usyk displayed every ounce of his masterful southpaw style when he outclassed Anthony Joshua in late September.

And Fury put on a similarly stunning display in his trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder, which he won by knockout in round 11.

A debate has since emerged on who would win between the two unbeaten heavyweight champions.

But according to SunSport readers, there is no doubt, with 91.1 per cent in favour of Fury.

The mere 8.9 per cent siding with Usyk is surprising, such was the quality of his win over AJ.

But Fury’s ability to get off the deck twice in one round to later KO Wilder is evidence of why he is the division’s No1.

Despite the landslide vote, the wait for an undisputed king will go on further.

Joshua, 31, has invoked his right to an immediate rematch with Usyk, 34, meaning Fury, 33, will fight the winner between Dillian Whyte, 33, and Otto Wallin, 30.

But his dad John explosively urged him to retire if he cannot unify with Usyk, fearing contenders like Whyte will not be able to motivate him.

John, 57, said on talkSPORT: “Would Dillian Whyte deal with Deontay Wilder? No.

“So why would I want to put him in there with my son and get him knocked out?

“At the end of the day, he just got knocked out by a 42-year-old [Alexander Povetkin].

“Tyson can’t get up for them kind of fights. He wouldn’t be able to raise his game because it’s not big enough.

“And he goes in there with a lacklustre attitude and you don’t see the best Tyson Fury. You only see the best of Tyson when he’s against the best.

“A challenge like he had and he’s in a great fight. For me, I’ve told him, ‘Usyk or don’t bother.’”
