"Probably forever": Usik's promoter spoke categorically about the fight with Fury
British champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) will soon receive an official offer to fight Ukrainian Oleksandr Usik (2-0-, 13 KOs). The gypsy king, as the Manchester native is called, will be offered an incredibly lucrative contract, which he will have to accept.
The promoter Alexander Krasiuk told about it in an interview with the YouTube channel iFL TV. He noted that if he refuses to fight against Usik, Tyson will have to give up his championship belt of the World Boxing Council (WBC), which the Briton has owned since 2020.
"As far as I know, Tyson's team will get a formal written offer very soon. It's up to them to decide whether to accept or reject it. We've done everything we can to make this fight happen, and now the ball is in his court. Tyson's side. If he accepts it, he's in for a big fight, the biggest fight of his career. If he tries to trade something for himself or change the agreement, it will show that he's not serious. Then he should give up the belt and finish his career. And this time not for one month or one week, as he did recently, but probably forever," said Krasiuk.
Recall that Usik is scheduled to make a mandatory defense on August 26 in a fight against Daniel Dubois (19-1, 18 KOs). Also we know, that in December Saudi Arabia intends to organize Usik-Fury and Anthony Joshua (25-3, 22 KOs) - Deontay Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs) fights in the same fight night. The media has published the boxers' fees for the big show. That said, Anthony has already confirmed his fight against Deontay.
Earlier, Tyson called Usik an ugly coward and expressed his readiness to fight the Ukrainian already in the summer. In addition, he accused the Ukrainian of greed, which led to the disruption of the fight on April 29. And Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn expressed confidence that Fury won't fight until the winter.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, Alexander Usik said that he was going to have a fight with Tyson Fury. Also, the Ukrainian boxer accused his British rival of lying, and then suddenly turned to the Gypsy King. In response, the Gypsy King's team noted that Usik is only interested in money.
