Stepchuk talks about the conflict with Fury Sr.

Stanislav Stepchuk, a member of Oleksandr Usyk's (21-0, 14 KOs) team, called John Fury crazy for hitting him in the head. The 30-year-old Ukrainian, commenting on the incident, said that he wanted to hit Tyson Fury's father (34-0-1, 24 KOs) in response, but it would have looked ugly.

Stepchuk, who used to box, told the Seconds Out YouTube channel. His journalist called the incident the first undercard of the Usyk-Fury fight, making the Ukrainian laugh. Stanislav advised Fury Sr. not to watch the May 18 fight because it could affect his health.

"I was just supporting our team. We just shouted 'Usyk, Usyk', I didn't touch him. He just couldn't take it. Yes, I wanted to hit him back, but because of the age difference, it was awkward. I would not advise him to watch the fight with such emotions. It would be better if he watched it with his eyes closed. Because his heart might not be able to withstand it," Stepchuk said.
