Nelson praised Usik and Fury's fight

he World Boxing Council (WBC) champion Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) is likely to refuse to fight Oleksandr Usik (21-0, 14 KOs). If the Gypsy King, as the Manchester native is called, makes such a decision, it will be a big problem for the whole sport.

This opinion was expressed by former British heavyweight world champion Johnny Nelson in an interview with the Pro Boxing Fans YouTube channel. In particular, the former boxer referred to the words of Tyson's father John Fury, who spoke about the decline in his son's career, as well as his difficulties in preparing for the fight with Usik.

"You know that John Fury is a man with a big ego. He doesn't want to look like a fool, so he tells the truth. If Fury doesn't come out for the fight on February 17, we're going to have problems. Because if his father is saying this now, then there is a feeling that the fight may be postponed and Tyson's team may need more time to prepare. I wouldn't be surprised if they want to move forward a little bit in that direction," Nelson said.
