Frank commented on his night of boxing, Fury’s victory over Chisora, expressed his opinion on the Ukrainian unified champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) and spoke about the next mandatory challenger for Usyk.

Tyson Fury just defeated Derek Chisora. Frank, what’s your immediate reaction?

— I think it was a good entertaining evening. As people thought. I think it worked out extremely well. We have 59700 people bought tickets for the fight. Tyson did what I knew he would do before the fight.

There was no option for Derek Chisora ​​to outbox Tyson. He came out throwing bombs and trying to knock him out. As a result, Chisora ​​received a decent beating. Tyson passed him, and now he is in position when we have fights with Usyk and Joe Joyce next year. So he’s in a great position. I’m happy for him and for the fact that he spent the rounds defending the title.

– When Usyk was there, he was just unperturbed. The man is a bit of a sleepwalker, isn’t he?

– He is Ukrainian. He did everything because he is an amateur gold medalist, he did everything in the cruiserweight, he did everything that was asked of him as a heavyweight. He will be unperturbed, especially now, because of what is happening in Ukraine. He was in the army. He will not be outraged. He is a fighter, just like Tyson. Nothing will anger Tyson.

– Is the fight for the absolute champion next? This is the fight you want and this is the fight we want. This is what everyone wants.

“We all know that. And this is the fight we want. This won’t be a problem.

“Bob Arum said there would be no problem with Filip Hrgovic. I saw that the WBA sent them a letter that they would not allow it. Just tell me your thoughts.

“That’s what they did. And actually look at what happened over the years of Joshua’s career. All the sanctioning bodies decided that there would be a rotation. IBF will be in June. And the only thing that should be is the protection of the WBA. And the official WBA contender is Daniel Dubois.
