Fury seriously evaluates Usyk

The owner of the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt, Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs), called Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) an absolute killer. The Gypsy King, as the Manchester native is called, recalled the Ukrainian's two victories over Anthony Joshua (28-3, 25 KOs) and called the fight against our compatriot the main fight of the year.

Fury said this in an interview with The Stomping Ground YouTube channel. The British boxer emphasized that he could not look behind Usyk's back and make plans for a possible fight with Joshua, confirming that he would have two fights with the Ukrainian champion.

"Usyk and I are the biggest fight of the century. There is no bigger fight. Because we are both undefeated. After I beat Usyk in the fight for the title of absolute world champion, I will meet him again. And I understand that one of the belts will be off the table. Usyk is a real killer. He is a bad person, Usyk. Let's not forget that he beat Joshua twice. He took him down the stairs. So how can I underestimate Usyk?" said Fury.
