Russians get furious after Usyk's pro-Ukrainian decision to fight Fury
Russian fans have been outraged by the decision of WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) to accept the offer of WBC titleholder Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) to split the fee for the fight for the world heavyweight title. Under the terms of the contract, the income will be divided 70% to 30% in favour of the British, but Usyk demanded that a pro-Ukrainian clause be included in the agreement.
According to Alexander's condition, Tyson will have to donate £1 million to Ukraine.
"Why won't Usyk give all his fee to Ukraine? ", Russian sports fans began to write, but they were immediately silenced by other commentators.
"He's already given a lot of the money he has, and he'll give this money anyway", "Did Usyk tell you what he's going to spend his fee on? Tell all of us", "Who told you that he won't give it back? What's the hypocrisy? Why do you immediately insult a person?" - some users defended Usyk.
Users noted that Usyk is using the fight with Fury to once again draw attention to the war in Ukraine.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, on the night of March 11, it became known that Usyk and Fury had finally agreed to fight. WBA President Gilberto Mendoza received confirmation of this from the teams of both boxers. The fight is scheduled for April 29.
