The owner of the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) expressed confidence that the fight with Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) will be marked by fair judging. The Gypsy King added that the teams of both boxers are making every effort to ensure that the referee's decisions do not cause controversy.

Fury said this in an interview with the BoxNation YouTube channel. The British champion mentioned the war in Ukraine, suggesting that the referees may subconsciously be on Usyk's side. Tyson also added that he has nothing against our compatriot, who has already proven his high level.

"We don't want controversy around the fight, we don't want a bad decision. His country is at war, and judges can be on the side of a person who is depressed by war. We don't want any controversy, talks about whether there was a punch below the belt or not, and so on. We want a clear decision. If I lose, give me this defeat. If he loses, give it to him. But I don't need any favors," Fury said.

Before that, Tyson promised to beat Usyk easily. Oleksandr told what he would do if the Briton refused to enter the ring on May 18.

In addition, the WBC announced its intention to change the boxing rules for the sake of the fight between Usyk and Fury. And British fans suddenly began to give up on the Ukrainian's chances of winning.
