Unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) admitted that he was ready to fight Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) during a duel of the eyes at a press conference in London where the date of the fight was announced.

"Yes, it's true. I was ready to fight. Tyson is No. 1 for press conferences. He talks a lot, and it's impossible to talk him out of it. I tried, but it's not realistic for me. He's No. 1 in babbling. It's good for the show. I respect him. But when Tyson Fury started touching me, I told him: "Hey, easy! I'm ready to fight! I'm ready to fight every night, anytime!" For me, a press conference is life, not a show. If you push me, I'm not just going to stand there. Don't touch me, this is my territory! We'll see in the ring," Usyk said.
