Immediately after defeating Anthony in a rematch, Usyk challenged WBC champion Tyson Fury to a fight. Later, the Ukrainian said that the duel with Fury in December is impossible.
In turn, Fury said that he was ready to fight Joshua next. The Briton said he was not going to wait until next year to fight Usyk.
Egis Klimas, Oleksandr Usyk’s manager, said Fury was solely responsible for the disruption of the fight for the undisputed world heavyweight title.
