"Usik is a dick!" Tyson Fury made a boorish prank at a press conference. Video
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) insulted WBA, WBO, IBO, and IBF titleholder Alexander Usik (20-0, 13 KOs). It happened at the press conference in Tenerife, Spain.
In a video posted by the YouTube channel Boxing Social, the Briton answered a question about which opponent of today or the past he would choose for himself now. Fury stated that he doesn't care who he fights, but he would choose the easiest one, naming Anthony Joshua.
At that moment, someone in the audience shouted "Usik is an asshole!", eliciting an approving reaction from Tyson: "A real asshole," the British champion said confidently.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, on March 10, Fury delivered a tough ultimatum to Usik's team. The native of Manchester demanded 70% of the fee for the fight and also said that he would add one percent for every 24 hours before signing the contract.
Alexander immediately agreed to the British man's terms, making him a pro-Ukrainian demand.
In response, Tyson came up with a new demand, proposing to our compatriot to exclude the rematch clause from the contract for the bout for the title of the absolute world heavyweight champion and to change the distribution of the fee.
Usik could not bear such humiliation and refused to indulge Tyson's whims by canceling the fight. After that, Fury went berserk, posting a minute-long video that contained a lot of swearing.
Later, Sascha named the fantastic amount of money Fury wanted to earn for the April 29 fight.
