Conor McGregor reacts to Fury and Usik fight

Former UFC double champion, Conor McGregor, shared his opinion on the fight between Tyson Fury and Alexander Usik, in which the Ukrainian won and became the first absolute heavyweight boxing champion of the world in 24 years.

According to the Irishman, he will be looking forward to Oleksandr Usik’s next fight, regardless of whether his opponent is Tyson Fury or Anthony Joshua.

“Usik is unbelievable!” wrote McGregor on social media. “He has resounding victories over Fury and AJ. Whichever one of them becomes his next opponent – I’m all for it. If Fury wants to try again, AJ has had two attempts, so why not? If not, a third fight between Usik and A.J. would go down a treat, and then, regardless of the outcome, let Tyson fight A.J.”

“I want to thank the organizers and everyone involved for making such a heavyweight event a reality! Thank the fight gods and our Lord that I live in a time like this!”

The heavyweight unification fight, in which Tyson Fury put the WBC title on the line and Alexander Usik the IBF, WBA and WBO championship belts, went the whole distance and ended with the Ukrainian winning by split decision with scores 115-112, 114-113 and 113-114.

“Gypsy King” has already stated that he will exercise his right to an immediate rematch, which is tentatively scheduled for October this year.
