Usyk and Fury met in London

The owner of the World Boxing Union (WBC) belt, Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs), unexpectedly criticized Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) for wearing earrings in his ear. The Gypsy King, as the Briton is called, noted that this is what will lead to his victory.

Fury said this during a meeting with Usyk as part of The Gloves Are Off program on TNT Sports. "I know he can't beat me. A man who wears earrings in his ear can never beat Tyson Fury. Never. Not a chance. No one who wears earrings can beat me," the Briton said categorically.

In response, the Ukrainian explained to him that such jewelry was worn by the Cossacks: "These were the people who defended my country from our enemies for many years. It's just a proof of my Cossack ancestry. They never lost to anyone. There is no beauty or fashion in this."

However, Tyson was not satisfied with this answer. "Listen, in Ukraine, it means he's a good fighter, but where I come from, it means he's a girl with an earring," Fury added.
