Despite potentially losing his titles in the fight, Fury appeared confident, telling iFL TV: ‘I don’t think it’s a tough fight. I don’t think it’s nearly as tough as old Del Boy.

“He will not stand up to the blows that Derek did to me. When I see the fight between him and Derek, whether people want to admit it or not, it was a 50/50 fight.

“It might have been 55/45, but it wasn’t a landslide. It wasn’t like he didn’t win a round, like he didn’t beat me.

The 34-year-old went on to explain how he felt invincible, adding: ‘There is no man born that can beat me and I will stand and prove it against anyone.

“I’ve seen people like Usyk many times before, smaller man come up a weight to fight the heavyweight champion and 99 percent of the time they get roughed up.

Usyk moved up the weight classes after becoming undisputed cruiserweight with defeats over Tony Bellow and Mairis Briedis.

Fury continued: “You can never underestimate anybody, but where I’m at in my life at the moment, I’d like to take him out pretty quickly.

“I’d like to get him in in February, make an example of him and then give him a rematch at Wembley.”
