The promoter of the Ukrainian heavyweight made a frank confession

The promoter of WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) believes that if the May 18 fight against WBC champion Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) is disrupted, the fight for the absolute title with the Briton will no longer take place. According to Oleksandr Krasiuk, no one will postpone the fight a second time.

"If the fight does not take place on May 18, I think it will not happen. I already said this before their fight on April 29 last year was canceled. Then I said that if the fight doesn't take place by May 29, it will never happen because of the problem with the IBF. The Turks Al Al-Sheikh and the guys from Saudi Arabia extended this period, but it is limited. Therefore, May 18 is the deadline for the fight for the title of absolute champion," Krasiuk said in an interview with Boxing News YouTube channel, as translated by fightnews.

As reported by OBOZ.UA. Fury underwent an autopsy on February 2 in preparation for his fight against Usyk. The fight, originally scheduled for February 17, was officially postponed.

Former world super middleweight champion Carl Froch said that the British fighter's injury looks suspicious.
