Fury turned to Usyk: “Hare to run, small sausage!”


WBC heavyweight belt holder Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) seems to have found a new epithet for a potential superfight opponent Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs). “Bomzhara”, “middleweight” and “rabbit” no longer shake the public, so the Briton took advantage of his father’s discovery yesterday and called the Ukrainian a sausage product.

“Hare to run, you little sausage!” Tyson said and urged him to sign a contract for the fight.

The Briton described the upcoming (hopefully) battle as the “fight of the century”, comparing its magnitude to the first fight between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier.

According to Fury, he no longer participates in all the negotiation ups and downs in order to clarify this or that clause in the contract – he hesitated.

What Usyk needs to defeat Fury: the opinion of the legend

“I’m not really into it. Frank Warren and my lawyer are paid for this, so they’ll work out a deal. And I don’t participate, because all these back and forth piss me off, “he said this”, “and this one said that”, blah blah blah, ”Tyson said in a fresh interview with iFL TV.

As always, Fury manages to contradict himself in one minute. He says – wah, cool, this will be the first champion with four belts, a unique achievement, history, legacy! Then, responding to the clarification of the perplexed interviewer: “So you said that you are not interested in titles”, say – “yes, I am not very interested in becoming an absolute”, and then in the same vein.

Former unified heavyweight champion and former heavyweight champion British David Haye believes that “Usyk is like Holyfield.”
