The promoter of the Ukrainian boxer spoke about the progress of negotiations on organizing the fight for the title of absolute champion.
Tyson Fury initially took a principled position in the fight against Alexander Usyk. This was said by the promoter of the Ukrainian boxer Alexander Krasyuk.
According to him, from the very beginning it was like no negotiation, because only the owner of the WBA, WBO and IBF titles gave the concession.
Due to the lack of compromises on the part of the British, further discussion of the contract simply lost its meaning.
“Disputes about the distribution of the rematch fee gave a spark, and at some point everything flared up. We kept trying to find a way out of all the situations, but suddenly gave up.
We tried to find a compromise on each outstanding issue. But the problem is that Tyson absolutely refuses to make any concessions.
Usyk has been in the camp for three months, because at first we thought of fixing this fight in February. But Fury wasn’t even prepared for this.
Usyk agreed to everything. Agreed to fight for 30%. But how much can you make concessions? Usyk agreed to 30%, meaning that the same distribution of the prize fund would continue in favor of the winner of the first fight. We speak frankly. In England, you can be easily robbed by the judges. We’ve had it.
My first suggestion is to distribute the money equally in the first match and in the second. This will keep both fighters motivated. Do you remember what happened to Tyson after the fight with Wladimir Klitschko?” Krasyuk said in a commentary on iFL TV.
Earlier, Krasyuk also denied information that Usyk could receive the biggest payday of his career for the fight with Fury.
