The opponent is not Usyk. Fury announces fight in two months


As Ukrainian WBA/WBO/IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) made it clear that he would not enter the ring again this year, Briton Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) , who owns the WBC title, along with his promoter Frank Warren, took care of finding another opponent to box before the end of this year.

Recall that Fury’s previous fight was in April, knocking out compatriot Dillian Whyte.

Tyson claims that he already knows who he will fight next, and promises to tell the public about everything in the coming week.

– Will you fight in 2022?

“I’ll fight in a couple of months here in Britain.

— Wow, by the end of the year?

– Yes exactly.

– Is it Usyk or someone else?

Usyk is not ready because he does not want to fight.

“So who will it be?”

– I dont know. Who will be available. Whom Frank Warren finds for me is who I will defend my WBC title against. They are all stupid anyway. I left but now I’m back. And no one can beat me. Someday I’ll beat Joshua and Usyk together.

“Is there a chance it’s Francis Ngannou?”

– No chance. I think he left with an injury.

If you could choose who would be next?

– Anyone. I’d pick middleweight because it’s the easiest fight to be honest. And to say that I am very interested in the fight for the absolute champion? He never was and never will be. However, if it’s a bloated middleweight, who people think is a great boxer, which I don’t, then it’s a money fight and it’s the fight people want to see now. Unfortunately, the guy does not want to fight and openly stated this. He won’t fight me this year. He wants to fight next year. Therefore, there is nothing I can do. Big Mac will be back soon. I’ll start training camp soon, I’ll get an opponent and we’ll put on an epic night like tonight. These events are truly special. Not many people in Britain can sell a stadium.

– Will you fight at Wembley?

– I dont know. I think there will be an announcement next week.

“So there is something?”

Yes, I know who I’m going to fight.

“You know, but you are misleading us.

— I know who it is. This will be announced early next week.

Is that Usyk?

– Not.

Is this guy from Germany?

“Look, I don’t know, I can’t say. Because there is no point then in a press conference next week.
