The owner of the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt, Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs), has once again promised to beat Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) in a fight for the title of absolute world champion. The Gypsy King, as the Manchester native is called, traditionally cited his size as an argument, noting that weight categories were invented for a reason.

Fury said this during a press conference on April 10, the Sky Sports website reports. The British champion, who considers himself the best heavyweight on the planet, noted that he respects his opponent, and that the confrontation itself is only part of the big sports business.

"There is nothing personal here, only business. There is a lot at stake. We have no hatred for each other. I respect him as a man and as a fighter. Everyone should respect him. He is the absolute heavyweight champion, the unified heavyweight champion. But I am the best. I'm sure I'll beat this guy. There's a reason we have weight categories. You can beat average-sized heavyweights, but you can't beat the elite guys in the division. These are facts," Fury said.

Earlier, the head of the WBC Mauricio Sulaiman came up with the idea of approving six judges at once, rather than three, to score the fight between Usyk and Fury. He predicted a catastrophe in the fight if his proposal was not supported, and also announced a radical decision about the fight.

Before that, Tyson mentioned the war in Ukraine. In turn, Oleksandr told what he would do if the Briton refused to enter the ring on May 18.

Earlier, two "moles" were found in Fury's team, and it also became known that the former Russian champion will return to the boxing event in Saudi Arabia. Also, British bookmakers changed their quotes for the fight and stopped considering their compatriot a favorite.

In turn, the former world champion Carl Froch in the second middleweight division questioned the holding of the Usyk-Fury fight. It became known what advice Volodymyr Klychko gave to Oleksandr. Also, the USSR champion Yuri Arbachakov expressed confidence that the Ukrainian would have to take risks in the fight.

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, promoter Oleksandr Krasiuk spoke about the problem with holding the fight between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury on May 18. The Ukrainian boxer himself named the main strength of the opponent.
