"Nothing else to do": boxing legend and Putin fan speaks out about the disruption of the Usyk-Fury fight
Former world light heavyweight champion Roy Jones Jr. expressed confidence that the fight between Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) and Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) is not of great interest today. The fan of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is not disappointed with the disruption of the fight for the title of absolute world champion, as two technicians were to meet in the ring.
Jones said this in an interview with Boxing Social. He suggested that Usyk and Fury should first fight all the strongest heavyweights to date, and then perhaps determine the best in a battle with each other.
"I don't think the world necessarily wants to see this fight right now. We have two boxers who are heavyweight champions. Let these two boxers remain champions, let them fight everyone else first. When there is no one else to fight, then they fight each other because they have nothing else to do. But right now Usyk and Wilder is a good fight... Joshua and Fury is a great fight right now. These are dynamic fights at the moment. The fight between Usyk and Fury will not be exciting. These are two boxers. Two technicians," Jones said.
Recall: The World Boxing Association (WBA) has obliged Usyk to sign a contract for a fight with the British Daniel Dubois (19-1, 18 KOs). If he wins, the Ukrainian can fight Fury for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion in November or December.
The Ukrainian's promoter Oleksandr Krasiuk made an unexpected statement about Fury. Our champion himself said that his fight against the Briton will definitely take place.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, the famous Russian heavyweight Alexander Povetkin made a prediction for the Usyk-Fury fight and named the only reason why he would support the Ukrainian.
