Oleksandr Usyk says ‘If I’m not fighting Tyson Fury, then I’m not fighting at all’
The WBA, IBF & WBO heavyweight world titles holder, Oleksandr Usyk, who is a unified world champion in both the cruiserweight and heavyweight divisions, was asked about the possibility of him fighting Tyson Fury, and he very much welcomed a showdown.
He told Sky Sports through his promoter and translator Alexander Krassyuk, after defeating Anthony Joshua again that “I’m convinced Tyson Fury is not retired.
“I want to fight Tyson Fury, if I’m not fighting Tyson Fury then I’m not fighting at all.”
Tyson Fury had reacted to Anthony Joshua’s loss to Oleksandr Usyk and confirmed he is no longer retiring from boxing.
He was highly critical of both fighters and delivered a typical Fury response.
On his Instagram story, Fury said: “Both of them were s****. It was one of the worst heavyweight title fights I’ve ever seen. It was bulls***. It was f***ing s****.
“Get your chequebook out. The Gypsy King is here to stay forever.”
The undefeated Fury, who had previously claimed he had hung up his gloves following his win over Dillian Whyte at Wembley in April, has now changed his tune after recently relinquishing the Ring magazine belt.
