Usyk’s manager: “He can’t beat Fury…”


The manager of the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) believes that WBC belt holder Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) allegedly does not want to quickly agree on a unification fight, because he is not sure of his victory. This opinion was expressed by Egis Klimas

The functionary specified that the Briton “is not afraid to fight, because he is a fighter.”

“You can’t say he’s scared. He is not afraid. He is not interested, because he understands that he can lose,” said Klimas and gave a prediction: “Usyk will not be able to beat Fury, but he will be able to defeat him. Fury is a giant and I don’t think anyone can beat him. But Usyk can beat him.”

Fury to announce opponent by Monday

Recall, just in case, that it was Fury who offered Usyk to fight at the beginning of winter in early autumn, but he refused due to an injury and a desire to rest.

In response to the question whether they are interested in the team in the Usyk-Wilder variant, the manager stressed that at the moment Usyk is only interested in unification with Tyson.

And then Deontay was already dreaming: he says, “we will fight for the title of the absolute world champion.”
