WBC champion British heavyweight Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs), following the owner of all other division belts, Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs), joined the promotion of the upcoming megafight – they will soon play out the title of division absolute in a head-to-head fight.
“This is a message for middleweight Usyk,” Fury captioned his video message. Rabbit, I’m coming for you. Run, rabbit, run! Do you know who I am? I am the Gypsy King. Soon there will be only one king in the division!”
“This is Tyson Fury, WBC heavyweight champion. Usyk, this homeless man, with his pitiful appeals called the Gypsy King to battle. Rabbit! I’m coming for you rabbit! Do you understand, rabbit? – the British big man accepted the challenge.
Observers suggest that the start of the promotion of the fight from Fury means only one thing – the parties have finally agreed on the distribution of the prize fund.
Earlier, the British team said: Usyk wants 50 to 50, but this is not fair for the fight with Fury at Wembley. The coach of ex-WBC champion Deontay Wilder thinks about the same: 50 to 50 for the Usyk-Fury fight at Wembley? No, it’s not real.
