"What I said to Klitschko": Fury dismissive of Usyk
The owner of the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt, Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs), spoke rudely about Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs), with whom he is to fight for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion. The Gypsy King, as the Manchester native is called, was enraged by the Ukrainian's desire to attend the British fight against Francis Ngannou on October 28.
Fury said this in an interview with the Daily Mail tabloid. Tyson also emphasized that he is not interested in the Ukrainian boxer's belts and the title of absolute world champion, and the only desire that motivates him to confront Usyk is to defeat him in the ring.
"Go to hell, Usyk! October 28 is not about him. It's Tyson Fury's show. It's about me and Francis Ngannou. All this talk about the title of absolute world champion and all this nonsense has never interested me. It's similar to what I said to Wladimir Klitschko. When I was not a champion, he said: "I know you want my belts". I said I don't give a damn about them, I want to break your face. It's the same with Usyk. For me, the main thing is to break this bastard's face," Fury said.
Earlier, he announced the date of the fight against Usyk and threatened our boxer with a lawsuit. Before that, Anthony Joshua (26-3, 23 KOs) revealed sensational details of Oleksandr 's fight against Tyson. In addition, the Briton gave his forecast for the historic confrontation between the Ukrainian and his compatriot.
In turn, Fury's manager Spencer Brown told about the secret conversation between Tyson and Oleksandr. The Ukrainian himself commented on the fight against the Briton in an original way, calling his opponent an avatar and questioning one of the terms of the deal.
The International Boxing Federation (IBF) has made its demand for the Usyk-Fury fight to take place. The World Boxing Organization (WBO) responded to the organization of the fight between Oleksandr and Tyson by naming a contender for the winner's titles. And former world champion Andy Ruiz named the main problem of the British rival of the Ukrainian.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, Oleksandr Usyk called Tyson Fury a "pot-bellied hottie" and sent him his regards. The Ukrainian boxer also spoke about the imminent end of his career. And promoter Oleksandr Krasiuk named a condition under which the fight with Fury could be canceled. In his turn, former world champion in two weight categories Timothy Bradley revealed a detail that would make Tyson helpless in a confrontation with our compatriot.
