How will the talks on Usyk-Fury fight go? Bob Arum’s opinion


Ukrainian WBA Super, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) along with manager Egis Klimas and promoter Oleksandr Krasyuk (K2 Promotions) arrived in London (England), where tonight there will be a fight for the WBC belt missing from the complete collection. Local favorite-champion Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) will fight with an old acquaintance – compatriot Derek Chisora ​​(33-12, 23 KOs).

Tyson Fury – Derek Chisora: forecast and bets for the fight on December 3

Fury’s co-promoter Bob Arum (Top Rank)
suggeststhat the parties will quickly shake hands: “How else? We are all friends here. I am friends with Usyk, and with his promoter, and with his manager. So we will definitely discuss everything. I don’t think the negotiations will be difficult. On the contrary, I expect that we will quickly agree on everything. But first, the only obstacle that needs to be removed is Chisora.”

Arum agrees that “everyone wants to see Usyk and Fury fight. And if Chisora ​​doesn’t blow it, then we’ll arrange it. Fury is king. He’s at the very top of the division. He has been at the top for a long time and I hope he has many more years of career ahead of him. You know … Alas, but a sports life is short-lived. I hope Fury continues to entertain us with his fights and antics for a few more years.”

Arum likes to compare Fury to the legendary Muhammad Ali: “They are both extroverts. Ali was just incredibly open. But there are also many differences between them. Fury still specializes more in the ability to put on a show. And Ali had an incredible influence on the rest of the world. I don’t think it’s fair to compare them. But I argue that these two are the greatest masters in the ability to present themselves and spin the duel.

Have you heard how much Fury and Chisora ​​will earn? The British media has the answer. And the promoter of the Ukrainian shared his thoughts on what will happen next if the Usyk-Fury fight does not take place.
