Not Usyk? Fury’s brother suddenly names another potential rival


Every day there is less and less chance that the reigning heavyweight champions Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) and Briton Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) will be able to agree on the distribution of the prize fund, which will suit both sides, and will hold the first fight in the era of four belts for the title of absolute heavyweight.

Observers agree that everything will be decided in the next 48 hours. It is expected that if by Friday evening the parties do not agree, then each will go his own way.

And if Usyk has to make a number of mandatory defenses (Daniel Dubois from the WBA, Filip Hrgovic from the IBF and Joe Joysot from the WBO), then Fury can afford to choose an opponent at his discretion. The favorite is still considered the ex-UFC champion Cameroonian Francis Ngannou.

Champ’s brother Shane John Fury all of a sudden
threw another name: “I reason like this. If it doesn’t work out to agree on a fight for the absolute, then Tyson still needs to enter the ring. I think Andy Ruiz would be a good opponent. This is a famous fighter. And he’s in good shape now. So I think the fans will love this fight.”

Team Fury booked Wembley Stadium on 29 April.

It was previously rumored that Ruiz suddenly left Al Haymon, in the plans of Wilder and Fury. A little later, Andy dotted the i’s.
