"This is such a shame..." Former world champion makes sharp statement about Usyk-Fury fight
Former world middleweight champion Carl Froch of the United Kingdom expressed his dissatisfaction with the fact that Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) and his compatriot Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) could not agree on a historic heavyweight fight. The former boxer stressed that fans, for whom sport exists, are looking forward to such grand battles.
Froch said this on his YouTube show Froch on Fighting. The Briton noted that if both opponents want to take part in the fight, it will undoubtedly take place, but if the fight is cancelled for any reason, it will be a real shame for boxing and the whole sport.
"I'm sure Fury wants this fight. He's confident that he'll get in the ring and beat anyone. Usyk is a dangerous, special fighter with great technique, but he's not big enough. I don't know why this fight hasn't been announced yet. When fights like this don't happen, it's a big disappointment for the fans. I hope it will take place soon. Fury vs Usyk - this fight has to happen. It's a unification fight, Usyk took all the belts from Anthony Joshua, beating him twice, and Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight in the world for me. It would be such a shame if this fight doesn't happen, so I hope it does," Froch said.
Earlier, Tyson refused to fight the Ukrainian in Saudi Arabia. The Briton also did not accept a lucrative offer to split the fee. In addition, a computer game showed how the Usyk-Fury fight would end online. The Ukrainian hinted at a fight against the Briton on social media, after which Russians began to wish our boxer defeat.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Oleksandr Usyk assessed the fight with Fury and compared him to Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs). He also noted that the Gypsy King's physical attributes do not indicate that he is stronger. The Ukrainian parodied Tyson and called him the "Big Belly" that he will beat.
