The incident with the former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs), who was seen drunk after his defeat by Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs), caused a serious stir in the boxing community. Analysts and fans began to worry that the British boxer's rematch with the Ukrainian was in jeopardy.

In turn, Russian propagandists from the Sovetsky Sport publication released an article with the headline "Ukrainian again brought Tyson to depression. Fury crawled out of the bar on his knees". They recalled that the Gypsy King had experienced serious psychological problems after his victory over Wladimir Klitschko.

"This new incident raises serious concerns among fans and experts. Fury is known for his psychological problems and his tendency to depression, so his current problems with alcohol could lead to another breakdown. There is nothing wrong with a person who is not prone to depression allowing himself to drink alcohol occasionally. But for Fury, with his history of psychological problems, it's quite different. Fury already faced severe depression in 2016 after his victory over Ukrainian Vladimir Klitschko," the Russian media noted.
