John Fury ran into Usyk's team

John, the father of World Boxing Council (WBC) belt holder Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs), was outraged by the statements made by representatives of Oleksandr Usyk's (21-0, 14 KOs) team, who questioned the veracity of the British boxer's injury, which led to the disruption of the fight on February 17. He called such statements stupid and, in particular, the version that the boxer's wife Paris inflicted the injury.

Fury's father said this in an interview with the Free Bets project, Express.co.uk reports. According to him, his son's dismemberment was exclusively related to sparring, and Tyson himself was in amazing shape 2.5 weeks before the fight with Usyk, which would have allegedly led to the Ukrainian's defeat.

"This is absolute nonsense, it makes no sense, and they are just making fools of themselves. They are embarrassing themselves with these accusations. They thought they were going to see a Tyson who hadn't trained. But I saw the shape Tyson was in. They're worried, they've always been worried. Usyk said he couldn't fight in April because it interfered with his training schedule. Tyson will be ready. Is Usyk ready? To say that Tyson's wife hit him with a frying pan... What idiots," Fury Sr. said.

After Usyk and Fury's fight was postponed to May 18, the main reasons why Tyson cannot refuse to fight the Ukrainian again were named. Oleksandr's team has named a boxer who will replace the Briton if he refuses to enter the ring. In the updated contract for the fight, the opponents were charged a multimillion-dollar fine.

Bookmakers reacted unexpectedly to the postponement of the Usyk-Fury fight by changing one of the quotes on its outcome. It also became known two conditions that the Ukrainian demanded to fulfill, agreeing to postpone his return to the ring on February 17. In addition, the media announced Tyson and Oleksandr's fees for the show.

Mauricio Sulaiman, President of the World Boxing Council (WBC), has come up with an idea to radically change the work of the judges at the Usyk-Fury fight. In addition, the head of the organization suggested using a video replay system during the fight. He also answered the question whether Tyson could be deprived of his championship belt.

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, promoter Oleksandr Krasiuk shared Oleksandr Usyk's plans after he fights Tyson Fury. In addition, it became known that the Briton had returned to training. In his turn, former welterweight champion Steve Cunningham gave an unexpected reason why Usyk will beat Fury.
