Warren spoke about Usyk

British promoter Frank Warren expressed confidence that depriving Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs) of the title of absolute world champion would benefit boxing. The representative of Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs) noted that this will allow him to have many good fights and then reassemble four belts into one.

Warren said this in an interview with Sky Sports. According to the Briton, in the fight against his client, Usyk made boxing history, but this is only the beginning of new great events in the sport. He added that he is looking forward to what will happen in the future.

"Usyk did what no one else has done. He unified the four belts. Four belts at stake is just the beginning. I am absolutely sure that after this, this collection will fall apart. But then they will be put back together again. We are in such a good position in terms of sports. There are so many good things happening that you just can't imagine how it's going to end because there are so many good fights to come," Warren said.

Usyk will be deprived of the International Boxing Federation (IBF) belt, which will be fought for by Filip Hrgovic (17-0, 14 KOs) and Daniel Dubois (20-2, 19 KOs) on June 1. As a result, the Ukrainian will no longer be the absolute world heavyweight champion. This decision angered the British Tony Bellew.

Usyk defeated Fury by split decision – 115:112, 113:114, 114:113. After the fight, the Briton called the war in Ukraine one of the reasons for his defeat. Tyson also expressed his desire to visit Ukraine.

World lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (18-3, 12 KOs) reacted to his compatriot's victory in three words. In Russia, the Ukrainian's triumph was called a victory for "the entire Slavic people."
