"He can beat with one hand": Fury's team made a bold statement about the fight with Usyk
John Fury, the father of British heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs), expressed confidence that his son would easily deal with Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs). At the same time, the organisation of the fight between the Gypsy King, as the Manchester native is called, and our compatriot will depend on the financial component.
Fury Sr. said this in an interview with the Stamina For Sale YouTube channel. According to him, Tyson is currently the best heavyweight on the planet. That is why Fury has the right to dictate his terms in order to earn the maximum fee for the fight with Usyk.
"Tyson can beat Usyk with one hand. At any moment, I can say that the Gypsy King, Tyson Fury, is the best heavyweight in the world, and by a long shot. So far, there is no one else in the division who is his equal. No one has even come close to Tyson. He stands alone. So why should he miss his chance? He wants the money. Tyson wants everybody to get paid, but he wants to get paid more than everybody else because he deserves it. And I tell him to get as much money as he can," said John Fury.
Recall that Usyk and Fury were supposed to fight on April 29, but failed to sign a contract for the fight. The Ukrainian and the Briton are expected to fight in Saudi Arabia in the winter.
Earlier, Usyk's manager Egis Klimas told when the Ukrainian boxer will fight next. In addition, it became known who Fury will fight instead of the Ukrainian.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Oleksandr Usyk's next fight caused a real stir in Poland. The day before, the boxer came to support the Ukrainian military and came under fire from the occupiers. In addition, the Armed Forces of Ukraine showed how our champion was shooting from a mortar.
