The owner of the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt, Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs), demanded that Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) refuse a large fee for the right to hold a fight for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion. The Gypsy King, as the Manchester native is known, added that he is not particularly interested in historical heritage.

Fury said this in an interview with the Fight Hub YouTube channel, Boxing Social reports. The British boxer emphasized that he is now fully focused on his fight with former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) champion Francis Ngannou, which will take place on October 26.

"Have I ever said that I want an absolute championship? Have you ever heard that that was my priority? It was always some other little fucking dream. Now I'm dealing with Ngannou. If the other little sausage wants to fight for the title of absolute, and if he's willing to take a small percentage, then we can make it happen. If he asks for a lot, I'll say no thanks. Usyk and his team are c***ers. They were offered a fight at Wembley, and we moved on. That's all," Fury said.

Earlier, Tyson said he was refusing to fight Usyk. Prior to that, insider Mike Coppinger said that promoters were optimistic about the chances of organizing a fight between the Ukrainian and the Briton.

In addition, Fury called Usyk a f raud after his victory over Daniel Dubois (19-2, 29 KOs). The Gypsy King also ridiculed the Ukrainian, who "rolled around the ring" after being hit in the fifth round of the fight on August 26 and set his own conditions for a fight against Alexander.

Tyson's promoter Frank Warren has announced the approximate dates of the Gypsy King's fight with Usyk. Legendary Russian Kostya Tszyu believes the fight will be difficult for Oleksandr, but called him the best heavyweight in the world at the moment.

Another representative of the Russian Federation, Nikolai Valuev, spoke dismissively of the Ukrainian's chances in the fight with Fury. In turn, Usyk's coach Sergey Lapin ridiculed Tyson and his team.
