The unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) continues his verbal duel with the British boxer Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs). The boxers are scheduled to fight this winter, but in the meantime, they continue to promote the historic fight, which will put four titles on the line for the first time in history.
Usyk said this in an interview on his YouTube channel Usyk17. The Ukrainian boxer also thanked his fans and critics for closely following his career, which, according to Oleksandr, he has already begun to prepare for the end of.
"Do I have anything to say to Fury? No, I don't want to say anything. I love him very much, this pot-bellied handsome man. As for the fans... I would like to thank you for your support, for following what I do. Thank you for supporting, criticizing, loving, hating. Thank you. You are incredible! And by the way, take care of yourself," Usyk said.
On September 29, the Ukrainian and the Briton signed a contract for the most anticipated fight of recent years. Usyk commented on the upcoming fight against Fury, calling his opponent an avatar and questioning one of the terms of the deal. In turn, Tyson himself spoke about the Ukrainian with disgrace and said it would be easy fight with him.
In addition, Usyk's promoter Oleksandr Krasiuk named a condition under which the fight with Fury could be canceled. The Ukrainian's ex-trainer Serhiy Vatamaniuk urged to take the Gypsy King seriously.
The media found out that the fight would take place before the New Year or in January. The legendary Mike Tyson recently announced his forecast for the fight of the year. The International Boxing Federation (IBF) has demanded that Usyk and Fury fight.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, the World Boxing Organization (WBO) reacted to the organization of the fight between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury by naming a contender for the winner's title. Former world champion Andy Ruiz named the main problem of the British.
