It’s been like this since the days of Ali – Fury’s promoter on why the fight with Usyk won’t take place at Wembley


Promoter Frank Warrenqueensberry promotions) explained why he could not satisfy the wishes of his WBC heavyweight champion fighter Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) and arrange for him to fight with the holder of all other division belts Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) in London on Wembley stadium.

“For us, it’s like Olympic Games. Like a final football world cup– ornate
started Warren, but then got down to business. Remember the legendary Muhammad Ali. He fought all over the world – in Zaire, the Philippines and Jamaica. And all why? And all because it was there that they offered the best financial conditions. And we will do the same.”

Warren hopes that British boxing fans will understand his decision: “Athletes, boxers have a short career. And very dangerous. And we’re not just talking about another title defense, but a historic fight with four titles on the line. These happen very rarely – one fight in a whole generation. Therefore, fighters will want to be guaranteed maximum fees for this fight. And we will accept the offer that will be the most profitable. Here are the things. Believe me, I myself would really like to do this fight at Wembley … “

It looks like Usyk and Fury will determine the absolute in early March in Saudi Arabia. The coach of former WBC champion Deontay Wilder commented on this fight: “He always finds a way to win.” A little earlier, Warren said that the WBC, IBF, WBO and WBA approved the fight – it will take place.
