Alexander defeated Tyson by split decision in the fight for the title of undisputed heavyweight champion

Egis Klimasmanager of the undisputed world heavyweight champion Alexandra Usikaexpressed bewilderment at the judging when counting points in the unification fight between the Ukrainian and the ex-WBC champion Tyson Fury.

“I’ve been suffering a lot from refereeing lately, so it doesn’t surprise me anymore. I don’t even have words about the judges. I sat in the place where the judge sits. I have no idea how they calculated it. Shame on the judges. Bad refereeing.”

“Usyk can’t do anything about it. One time the judges work well, the next they look terrible. It’s like a lottery. You will win it if you get a good judge. I don’t want the judge to be on my side. I want him to be honest.”

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.
