Fury: I watched the fight with Usyk many times, and every time I get the same answer – I won

Tyson believes he was more active in the ring

British, former WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KO) commented on the fight for the title of absolute world champion against the Ukrainian boxer, the current holder of the WBO/WBA/IBF/IBO/WBC heavyweight belts Alexandra Usika (22-0, 14 KOs).

“I watched the fight many times, and every time I get the same answer – I won. Usyk knows that he did not defeat me. I boxed and out-boxed him most of the rounds.”

“It actually turned out to be easier than I thought. People said he was hard to hit, but I was hitting him with combinations and laughing at him.”

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 “Gypsy King” has officially activated the rematch option. The second fight between Usik and Fury will take place on December 21, 2024 in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia).
