Usyk was offered huge money for the fight, but he refused – Fury


British WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) explained why he decided not to wait for the fight for the title of absolute champion against Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk next year, but to enter the ring on December 3 against compatriot Derek Chisory.

It turns out that Tyson prefers to live for today and not look far into the unknown.

“I think they want to fight me on the condition that I win (over Chisora), which is not yet guaranteed,” Fury said. – Usyk was offered huge money for the fight on December 3, but for some reason they did not want to accept the offer. It’s not my business anymore. I can’t live for someone else, just as I can’t just sit and wait. I’m 34 now, not 22. I have to act fast, not idle.”

“People ask me: “Why didn’t you want to wait until next year to fight Usyk?” Yes, because in this life there are no guarantees, especially for the next year, the Briton emphasized. Nobody knows what will happen tomorrow, let alone next year. So I decided to strike while the iron is hot and do what’s best for me and my career, not for anyone else. I want to stay active. Frank Warren offered me a big show and we’ll put on a great show again.”
