"I'm not worried at all." Fury says the only thing that interests him in the fight with Usyk
The British boxer Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) has reiterated that he does not attach any importance to the title of absolute world heavyweight champion, which will be at stake in his fight with Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs). At the same time, the Gypsy King, as the boxer from Manchester is called, aims to defeat our compatriot.
Fury said this in an interview with Boxing Social. The owner of the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt emphasized that the fight with Usyk is just another passing match in which he is only interested in winning, and it doesn't matter how many titles are being played for.
"I don't care about the title of absolute champion at all, it doesn't mean anything to me. I've always said that belts don't mean anything to me. For me, the victory itself matters the most. If I was told that I could collect all the belts but not win, or defeat Usyk for half a belt, I would want to do that. For me, it's just a victory, beating people. That's all it is. The title of absolute champion has never been my dream," Fury said.
Earlier, he announced the date of the fight against Usyk and threatened our boxer with a lawsuit. Before that, Anthony Joshua (26-3, 23 KOs) revealed sensational details of Oleksandr 's fight against Tyson. 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 the Briton 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.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, Oleksandr Usyk called Tyson Fury a "pot-bellied hottie" and sent him his regards. The Ukrainian boxer also spoke about the imminent end of his career. And promoter Oleksandr Krasiuk named a condition under which the fight with Fury could be canceled. In his turn, former world champion in two weight categories Timothy Bradley revealed a detail that would make Tyson helpless in a confrontation with our compatriot.
