Usyk-Fury talks. Tyson suddenly started talking about a rematch


Promoter Frank Warrenqueensberry promotions) suggests that it would be nice to include an immediate revenge clause in the contract for the fight for the title of absolute heavyweight champion between Briton Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) and Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs).

“I’m not 100% sure about this matter,”
reasoning Warren. – In the sense that we have not yet discussed this point. But, perhaps, this moment is still better to register. After all, anything can happen in a fight. For example, headbutting, cutting and stopping the fight without declaring a winner. This is boxing. Anything can happen here.”

Warren is well aware that in a rematch it will not be possible to keep all four division belts at stake, since the unified champion Usyk has 3 mandatory contenders – Britons Joe Joyce (WBO) and Daniel Dubois (WBA), as well as Croat Filip Hrgovich (IBF).

“In the Usyk vs Fury fight, the title of absolute champion will be at stake – all four division belts. And all this will go to the winner. But in the event of a revenge, I don’t think that the same 4 belts will be at stake. As for me, the organizations will attack the fights with their mandatory contenders, ”the experienced Warren argues very sensibly.

The question is when will this fight take place. Fury’s co-promoter Bob Arum (Top Rank) stated that “This issue has already been resolved.” But he had previously said that Usyk and Fury agreed on everything. But the promoter of the Ukrainian, it seems, is not sure. His statement sounded too ultimatum: “If it does not take place before March 4, then it will never take place.”
