Bellew speaks about the disruption of the Usyk-Fury fight

Former world heavyweight champion Tony Bellew expressed confidence that the injury of Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 243 KOs), which disrupted his fight with Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs), was not fake. The British boxer noted that he does not believe in conspiracy theories and that his compatriot is afraid to fight the Ukrainian.

Belgium said this in an interview with talkSPORT. According to him, the fight, which will now take place on May 18, will not only be about the title of absolute world heavyweight champion but also about huge money, which makes any talk that Fury could have faked or imitated his cut untenable.

"Some ridiculous stories about him cutting his face, etc... Stop it. This is a guy who is reportedly going to be fighting for something between £50 and £70 million and you think he's going to cut himself to make it all fall through? Don't be ridiculous. I always thought that he didn't want to face Oleksandr Usyk, but when you have that kind of money dangling in front of you, you're not afraid of anyone. No fighter is afraid of another fighter," Bellew said.

The fight was originally supposed to take place on February 17, but the Gypsy King was cut open during a sparring session two weeks before the show. Tyson apologized for his injury.
