Krasyuk: I see no reason for the rematch between Usik and Fury not to take place

The Ukrainian team is ready to hold a second confrontation with the Gypsy King

Alexander Krasyukpromoter of the WBO/WBA/IBF/IBO/WBC heavyweight champion Alexandra Usikacommented on the possible second fight of the Ukrainian with the former WBC title holder Tyson Fury.

“We are people of our word. It’s not about paperwork – if we shake hands and promise something, we do it. I see no reason for a rematch not to take place.”

On the night of May 19, Usik inflicted the first defeat of Fury in his professional career in a fight that took place at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia). The victory was awarded to the Ukrainian by a split decision: 115-112, 113-114 and 114-113.

Usik became the first absolute world heavyweight champion in the era of four belts. In the heavyweight division, the last time Lennox Lewis held absolute status was in 1999, but then three titles were enough for this title.

It was reported that an agreement had been reached between Usyk and Fury for a re-fight. The Chairman of the General Authority of Entertainment of Saudi Arabia, Turki Al al-Sheikh, stated that the rematch between Alexander and Tyson is scheduled for October 12-13 in Riyadh.
