Fury: If Usyk really wants a fight, we’ll do it next

Tyson is ready to enter the ring against the Ukrainian after the fight with Chisora

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury commented on his possible unification fight against the WBA/WBO/IBF/IBO champion Oleksandr Usyk.

“After I beat Dillian Whyte in April, I was really about to retire and I swear to God I couldn’t be more confident about anything in my entire life. I’ve been out of the ring for a few months, I’ve been writing my third book and I’m also composing a song for the World Championship so I’ve been very busy. But without boxing, I just felt like I didn’t have a purpose in life anymore.”

“If Usyk can be persuaded and they really want a fight, then we will have that fight next. If the fight with Usyk takes place, it is more than likely that it will be in Saudi Arabia. After that, we will return to the UK.”

Usyk challenged Fury after defeating Anthony Joshua. Soon, the Ukrainian said that it was impossible to fight Tyson this year. Promoter Alexander Krasyuk said that the working date of the Usyk-Fury fight is February 18th.

Promoter Frank Warren has said that the Ukrainian will be Fury’s next opponent after the Brit’s fight with Derek Chisora, which is scheduled for December 3. Tyson himself said that in 2023 he will have three fights, one of them with Usyk.

The position of the IBF, which believes that the fight of the Ukrainian with the mandatory challenger Filip Hrgovic, is more priority than the sanctioning of the unification fight between Usyk and Fury, can hinder the organization of the Usyk-Fury fight.
