“I believe I can fight him [Tyson Fury]”
By way of Brian Webber: Oleksandr Usyk is confident that WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will agree to fight him for the undisputed championship after he is taking good care of Anthony Joshua this Saturday night in their rematch.
3-belt unified champion Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs) doesn’t imagine what some boxing fans are saying that Fury doesn’t want to fight him and will elect to stay retired relatively than face him.
After all, what would possibly lure Fury into taking the fight against Usyk is if he doesn’t look spectacular in beating Joshua.
As an example, if Usyk gets dropped a couple of circumstances and is pressured to rally hard for the win, that may most likely inspire Fury enough to take the fight.
“I’m now not passionate about that the least bit,” mentioned Oleksandr Usyk to Struggle Hub TV when suggested that Anthony Joshua’s group believes he’s going to knock him out.
“I believe we’re going to fight him [next],” mentioned Usyk about Tyson Fury.
“I believe that’s the best fight that can be made inside the heavyweight division on the subject of types and movement,” mentioned Shawn Porter to Struggle Hub TV a couple of war between heavyweight champions Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk.
“I don’t assume that’s a fight that Tyson Fury wishes simply because he’s acutely aware of there are each and every different fights that he will have where he’ll have further eyes and money than Usyk,” Porter mentioned.
“I’m now not mad at him. At this stage, he’s completed the entire thing that he will have to do as a way to command the money that he wishes and the eyes and the attention that he wishes.
“He mentioned something about fighting Chisora. That’s now not [a big clash], alternatively he can advertise a fight and doing it inside the O2 and all that kind of stuff. Other people want to see Tyson Fury. They want to see him against a character.
“I’m now not saying that Chisora is on the degree of Usyk, alternatively on the subject of being a broker and having a fun promotion. You get a show. I’m now not going to call it a very easy night, alternatively you get the night that you want. It’s how that business goes for Tyson Fury at this stage,” mentioned Porter.
