WBA, WBO, IBO and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) gave a press conference before his fight against Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs). While talking to journalists, the Ukrainian admitted that the WBC titleholder is actually afraid of him.

"Whether he wants to fight or not, I don't know. But the fact that he is afraid is true," rtfight.com quoted the 37-year-old native of Simferopol as saying.

According to Usyk, he put a lot on the line in this fight, but he won't blame Tyson for what happened.

"We just have to take it very seriously because we're on a different level with Tyson Fury. We have to cross out every little detail in order to continue training and get into the ring. And it's weakness to condemn people for any mistakes. I understand the situation perfectly. And even if someone is playing me, they are playing by my rules," said Alexander.

Now Usyk is going to stay at home for a few days to see his wife and newborn daughter, and then return to training.

"Because I have a hot ring waiting for me," Oleksandr said.
