Tyson Fury: “The big test is not Usyk, but the organization of the fight”


Briton Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) gave an interview for the TV channel
BT Sports.

In a conversation with a journalist, Tyson told how he was doing, commented on the organization of his fight against the unified champion from Ukraine Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs), spoke about a possible fight against former UFC champion Cameroonian Francis Ngannou, and also spoke about his brother’s fight Tommy Fury (8-0, 4 KOs) vs. US YouTuber boxer Jake Paul (6-0, 4 KOs).

Tyson, how are you? Look good.

– Yes. Very good. I just enjoy life. In January I went for a week in Tenerife. I’m back and just enjoying life.

— I know you are happy when you are in the hall. No fight date yet, but are you training?

“I use training to control my mental health and everything else. Yes, I train every day.

— Usyk… I know that you don’t want to talk much about it until the fight is finalized. They say they want a fight, you want a fight…

– Yes. Look, from what I’ve seen over the past year or so, both teams seem to want this. But it’s not about teams. We’re just waiting for a big offer from abroad. If it doesn’t arrive, we’re considering doing it here at Wembley.

“I was talking to his promoter the other day, and Usyk really wants to do it at Wembley, in front of a packed arena.

— Yes, that would be great. Wembley is like my second home, and any British stadium, let’s put it this way.

When will the Usyk-Fury fight take place? The promoter of the British called the final date

You’ve been having some fun through social media. We have Belly against Rabbit, I believe, such a promotion is going on.

What is Big Belly doing? He eats them [смеются]. And everything else that goes with it from all angles, from their management team and everyone else, love them all.

“It’s also funny that it’s the year of the rabbit.

– Yes. Look, I’m looking forward to the challenge. It will be a big test and I accept it. But an even greater test is to finalize the fight. So let’s see what happens in the next month or a couple of weeks.

I know you used to say you don’t worry about belts, but it would be nice to own all of them.

– If this happens, it will be monumental. Like the fight of the century. If you are interested in legacies and such things, this will be it. Because this is the first champion with four belts in the history of the heavyweight division. Yes, pretty good.

— You mentioned Francis Ngannou’s name earlier. Still interested in it?

“Interested, but once again, these people say they want to fight me, put this desire on paper, but there is nothing behind it. Because if it were, they would come, ask how much money you want, secure the deal and go ahead and fight.

— Your brother vs. Jake Paul, what do you think about this fight?

“I think the fight is fantastic. This should be a big fight because he’ll be on BT and ESPN’s Top Rank PPV. They’ve been talking about this fight for a long time. So I’m looking forward to seeing it. This is true if it really takes place, and the start has already been given. It will definitely happen in Saudi Arabia.

Tommy told me that if he didn’t win, he would never look at boxing again, which he didn’t deserve. I already said this to someone in an interview. Tommy has more to lose than Jake if he loses. Tommy is a professional boxer, he’s in his own country, and people don’t really expect this guy to beat Tommy. I think there’s more pressure on Tommy because if he loses, it’s game over. But if Paul loses, then in any case, no one expected that it would be different with the YouTube boxer. But if he wins, then Tommy Fury has always been dog shit and all that. I think there’s a lot more pressure on Tommy.

How do you see this fight going?

– I see how Tommy knocks him out in the fifth or sixth round. I don’t think he will put him down in the beginning because Jake can box a little and he gets better every month. Tommy has to get to him. If he can’t do it, then Jake must. I would like to say “knockout”, but you know what I meant anyway.
