The owner of the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt, Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs), has promised to knock out Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) in a maximum of seven rounds on May 18. The Gypsy King, as the Manchester native is called, admitted that he was not impressed with the Ukrainian's performance in previous heavyweight fights.

Fury said this in an interview with The Stomping Ground YouTube channel. The British lineal champion could not answer the question whether Usyk would be his toughest opponent in his career, and added that he would have no problem shaking hands with the Ukrainian in case of defeat.

"Is Usyk my toughest opponent? I don't know, I've never fought him. Styles make fights. He had only two or three fights in the heavyweight division (actually five - ed.). And to be honest, I wasn't too impressed with him. He does what he has to do - he wins and gets paid. He finishes his work and goes home. Is he strong enough to beat the Gypsy King? I don't think so, but good luck to him. If he does, I'll shake his hand. If not, I'll move on to another opponent. I will destroy him in seven rounds," Fury said.

We would like to remind you that Usyk and Fury were supposed to fight on February 17, but due to Tyson's cut, the fight was postponed to May 18. On the eve of the fight, the World Boxing Organization (WBO) made a statement about the rematch between the Ukrainian and the British.

Derek Chisora (34-14, 23 KOs), a former rival of the two boxers, gave his categorical forecast for the fight. In addition, the legendary Vitali Klitschko gave original advice to the Gypsy King.

In turn, promoter Eddie Hearn informed that, according to the organizers of boxing nights in Saudi Arabia, the winner of the Usyk-Fury fight on May 18 will fight the strongest in the confrontation between Anthony Joshua (27-3, 24 KOs) and Francis Ngannou (0-1, 0 KOs).

At the same time, the Ukrainian's team has already decided on a boxer who will replace Tyson if he refuses to enter the ring again. If the Briton does so, he will also face a multimillion-dollar fine.
