"He will be sued": Fury threatened Usyk, revealing unexpected details of the fight
The owner of the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt, Tyson Fury, has confirmed that his fight against Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) is scheduled for December 23 this year. At the same time, the Gypsy King, as the Briton is called, unexpectedly emphasized that the Ukrainian was set strict conditions for the fight.
Fury said this in an interview with Sky Sports, sharing his expectations for the upcoming historic fight. According to Tyson, Usyk allegedly has no other chance to hold a fight against him but to do so by the end of the year. Otherwise, the Ukrainian will violate the terms of his contract with the show.
"Usyk is a sausage. I expect this fight to take place in December. That's what I was told, so I have no reason not to believe it for sure. Usyk has to fight me in December, he has no choice. He signed a contract, so if he doesn't, he's in breach of contract and he'll be sued. So he really has no choice," Fury said.
Earlier, Anthony Joshua (26-3, 23 KOs) revealed the sensational details of Usyk's fight against Fury for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion. In addition, the Briton gave his forecast for the historic confrontation between the Ukrainian and his compatriot.
In turn, Fury's manager Spencer Brown spoke about the secret conversation between Tyson and Oleksandr. The Ukrainian himself commented on the fight against Fury in an original way, calling his opponent an avatar and questioning one of the terms of the deal.
The International Boxing Federation (IBF) has made its demand for the Usyk-Fury fight to take place. The World Boxing Organization (WBO) responded to the organization of the fight between Oleksandr and Tyson by naming a contender for the winner's titles. And former world champion Andy Ruiz named the main problem of the British rival of the Ukrainian.
