"Who is he?" Fury had harsh words for Usyk
World Boxing Council (WBC) super featherweight champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) has made disparaging remarks about Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs). The Gypsy King, as they call the native of Manchester, noted that the victory over our compatriot he is not particularly interested in.
This Fury said in an interview with the documentary At Home With The Furys, which was released on the platform Netflix, writes the portal The Mirror. Tyson added that he is ready to fight Usyk and Anthony Joshua (26-3, 23 KOs) at the same time, which could change during the fight.
"A win over Usyk means nothing to me, who the hell is he? Everybody expects me to beat Usyk, a middleweight who's smaller than me. If he beats me, it'll be like, "Oh my God, he beat a mammoth that nobody could beat!" I'm not going to give anyone the opportunity to achieve that. Hell, no. This would probably be the best fight ever. If Usyk and Joshua fought me together as a team, just keeping switching between rounds. I'd actually beat them both on the same night, that's how easy they are," said Fury.
Note that the promoter of Tyson Frank Warren named the tentative dates of the fight of the Gypsy King with Usyk. Legendary Russian Kostya Tszyu considers the fight difficult for Oleksandr, but called him the best super featherweight in the world at the moment.
And another representative of the Russian Federation Nikolai Valuev spoke disparagingly about the chances of the Ukrainian in the fight with Fury. In turn, Usyk's trainer Sergei Lapin ridiculed Tyson and his team.
As reported OBOZREVATEL, the World Boxing Association (WBA) issued a statement on the scandal in the fight between Oleksandr Usyk and Daniel Dubois. The World Boxing Council (WBC) made a similar move. Also for the first time the fight between the Ukrainian and the British commented in the team of Tyson Fury.
