Butaev criticized Fury

Former welterweight world champion Rajab Butayev (14-1-0-1, 11 KOs) criticized British boxer Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) for his fight against Francis Ngannou (0-1, 0 KOs). The 29-year-old Russian accused the Gypsy King of simply not preparing for the fight and disgracing boxing.

Butayev said this in a commentary to the propaganda TV channel Match TV. The 2004 Russian champion added that Fury had convinced fans and experts that a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter with no boxing experience could beat a professional world champion.

"It was very sad. It was hard to watch. It's a shame for boxing. It is clear that Fury did not prepare for this fight. And others think that an MMA fighter came out and beat the best boxer in the world. It's a shame because of that. We understand that with the same preparation Fury had for Wilder, Tyson would have dealt with Ngannou in one round. That's my opinion," Butaev said.

We would like to remind you that the Gypsy King defeated Ngannou by a split decision. The Cameroonian knocked Tyson down in the third round, the seventh time in his career that the Briton has been knocked down. The Briton has already agreed to a rematch with the Cameroonian.
