There may be some friction in the negotiations regarding the terms of the contract between the team of Ukrainian and British heavyweight Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) and Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs). Otherwise, why then the first one today wrote (according to reporter Michael Benson with a screen) a post in
Twitter about the adversary’s greed for money?
It is also possible that this is just the promotion of a potential superfight. Here is what they wrote in Usyk’s account on his behalf (it is unlikely that he himself, because it is not in his style).
“Fury, you talk about greatness in boxing. At the same time, you say, “Give me a lot of money,” the message says. “Greatness in boxing is not about money, greatness comes from winning.”
Further, Alexander’s microblog continues: “You say that I am avoiding you, although I have never avoided you and even came to you. I am ready to box with you even without prize money!”
in Usyk’s profile no.
“You are next!” Usyk recorded a new video for Fury
Of course, no one will ever at this level, especially in a duel for all the major titles – WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO – box for free, and all this is just for the sake of a red word and promotion. Although, if tonight they both said – men, after 3 hours they won’t give money to the ring, just “for greatness”, then Usyk, most likely, would have run there already on the run.
According to the co-promoter of the British, the head of Top Rank Bob Arum, about the place of the fight, Usyk accepted the offer of the Saudis, it’s up to Fury.
Tyson’s second co-promoter Frank Warren says that Usyk’s fight will definitely not take place in early March.
