The famous promoter made a frank confession

Frank Warren, the promoter of Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs), commenting on his client's fight with Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs), believes that Tyson did everything right, but everything changed after the Ukrainian's accurate punch in the 7th round. After that, Usyk found the strength to turn the tide of the fight.

"By the middle of the fight, Fury was dominating, in my opinion, but Usyk got a second wind, and when he hit Tyson on the nose, it changed the dynamics of the fight. Tyson seemed to lose concentration for a while, then Usyk had a great ninth round. As I saw it, it was a two-part fight. Tyson Fury won the last round, got back in the game and he knows best what he needs. And I'm sure Usyk knows too," boxingscene quoted Warren as saying.

After that, Frank Warren expressed confidence that depriving Oleksandr Usyk of the title of absolute world champion would benefit boxing. Fury's representative noted that this would allow for many good fights to take place, and then to reassemble the four belts into one.
