Warren speaks about Fury's fight with Usyk

Promoter Frank Warren has expressed confidence that the International Boxing Federation (IBF) will take its championship belt away from the winner of the fight between Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) and Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs), who currently holds the title. The British representative noted that this will happen despite the mandatory rematch of the heavyweights.

Warren said this in an interview with the Seconds Out YouTube channel, boxing-social.com reports. The promoter emphasized that given the grand boxing series in Riyadh, the organizers are unlikely to pay attention to the order of the fight sanctioning bodies.

"The IBF has its own opinion and they are entitled to it. If Usyk-Fury turns out to be a really great fight and it deserves a rematch, then that's exactly what will happen. With the season in Riyadh and the money involved, the governing bodies will have to be a little more reasonable. Or they will be completely ignored," Warren said. Thus, Usyk will either lose the IBF championship belt because of the defeat, or he will be forced to resign.
