“I will cut down the Mustache in 6 rounds! We argued.” Tyson Fury interview


The WBC world champion in the heavyweight division (over 101.6 kg) Briton Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) gave
interview for an American reporter after the end of the show from WWE.

In a conversation with a journalist, Tyson commented on a possible fight for the title of absolute world champion against the unified champion from Ukraine Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs). The British champion also spoke about a possible fight between former US champion Deontay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) and former unified British champion Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs).

– Technically, you finished your career, everyone knows that. But you shout: “Usyk!”, say that he is hiding from you. Why is this fighter who just defeated Anthony Joshua in a rematch hiding from you?

“Because he called me after the fight, right?

– Called.

Everyone has seen or heard it. So I gave my answer, said: “Come on, do the fight in December!” Oh no, he doesn’t want to fight in December because he got injured in the last spar with Joshua. It is what it is. He’s scared and running away, in my opinion. He knows what will happen to him if he suddenly decides to enter the ring. He will be destroyed!

– You are an agile and fast fighter, especially for your size, and everyone understands that he is a smaller fighter. Yes, he is also agile, but what weapon do you have to beat Usyk?

– Each of my guns is for Usyk. Usyk is a smaller fighter, but he gained mass. So how much is he there, 100 kg? There is not a single heavyweight in the world who is more agile and faster than me. If he dries down to 90kg, he can and will have agility and speed against me, but the sudden increase in mass and size will destroy him and erase him. This fight will be like a double-decker bus against a food truck. I will push him around the ring for 4-5 rounds. Me and (coach) Sugar (Hill), we’re both convinced of that. If he goes six rounds with me, it’s going to be a shit show. I’ll definitely cut it down within six, and Sugar thinks I’ll cut it down within four. So we argued.

You beat Wilder twice, some say thrice, Joshua lost twice – those two might be superfighting in the future. From what we’ve seen, who do you think will win this fight?

“I always said who would win in a fight like this. This is Wilder. As soon as he hits him – it’s a one-slap knockout – “see you later, bye.”

– Did you have any conversations about the fight with Usyk, with you personally?

– No, it was not.

Is this situation the same as you had with Wilder? You two ended up having to talk. Is this something you might do in the future?

– Not. He wants to fight me, I want to fight him. I want an easy win over a handsome man. Why shouldn’t I fight? Still, they rave about this “great” fighter. He only had three heavyweight fights: journeyman Chisora, who I beat, and two fights against bodybuilder AJ, who everyone knows can’t box. So how can this guy be a legendary heavyweight boxer? Sorry, he fought Witherspoon who had one fight in 5 years and he gave him a tough fight. So where is that great heavyweight resume? I will destroy this fool. He’s just another European bum, like I always say. These European fighters are mostly clumsy.

They put him on the cover of The Ring magazine…

– By the way, I gave this belt, and they were able to fight for it. Do you know why? Because I will become a three-time champion of The Ring magazine. That’s how sure I am that I’m going to blow Usyk.

– Do you agree with the opinion of people that you need to beat Usyk to prove that you are the king of this era of boxing?

“No, I shouldn’t hit anyone because there was a three-headed dog earlier. It was me, Wilder and Joshua. Wilder fell, Joshua fell. The one-headed dog is left, and that’s me.

– In the boxing or WWE ring, we are looking forward to seeing you, Gypsy King.

– Thanks a lot. All the best. May God bless you.
