Fury: If Usyk beats me, then I wish everyone good luck and go to bed

The Gypsy King will not be particularly upset about the possible defeat

WBC heavyweight title holder Tyson Fury believes that his possible defeat in the upcoming fight for the absolute heavyweight title with the WBO/WBA/IBF/IBO heavyweight world champion Alexander Usik won’t be a disaster.

“After winning the undisputed title, I will not change and will remain the same guy. I have a million dollars in the bank, a wonderful wife, a bunch of wonderful children. I have dogs, expensive cars, jewelry, clothes. I have fame, fortune, people are inspired by me and I saved many from suicide.”

“I wrote three books, worked for WWE, sang with Robbie Williams, wrote the song Sweet Caroline. I have made popular documentaries for ITV and Netflix. “I am a two-time undefeated heavyweight champion of the world and have won 23 titles throughout my career.”

“If I get there and they kick me out two minutes later, it’s like, ‘Okay. Thank you very much and good night. God bless you. See you in October.”

The unification fight between Usik and Fury will take place on May 18. The list of other fights that will take place as part of the boxing evening in Saudi Arabia is also known. Among them is the fight between Ukrainian Daniel Lapin and Portuguese Octavio Pudivitra for the WBA Continental light heavyweight title.

The event will be hosted by Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The WBC proposes to reform the judges for the reporting fight, increasing their number to 5-6 people. Penalties for boxers who refuse to fight are $10 million.

WBC President Mauricio Suleiman announced that an agreement had been concluded between the boxers for a re-fight. The WBO is also ready to sanction the second fight. It was reported that the fate of a possible rematch depends on the holding of the first fight. Fury said that the contract has a mandatory rematch clause, and a re-fight with Usyk could take place in October.

Suleiman also presented a special WBC belt for which Usyk and Fury will fight. Its design uses the colors of the Ukrainian and British flags. Pope Francis has already blessed the World Boxing Council belt that will be on the line in the title fight.
