interview Michelle Joe Phelps, in which he shared an insider on why the fight for the title of the absolute world champion between the holder of three belts Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) and the WBC champion Briton Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) will not take place in Saudi Arabia, despite the original plans.
– Since you got close to Prince Khalid, tell us what happened with the proposal to Tyson Fury and Alexander Usik. Can you give us some insight?
– Yes. They wanted more money and my boss said, “Don’t worry about it. Go earn it at Wembley! See you later. Have a nice trip.” That’s all.
Was it just one of the parties?
“They wanted more money and my boss said, ‘No! Go ahead, earn the money I’m offering at Wembley.’ That’s it. This is a simple fact.
Were there two sides, or is one side larger than the other?
– Let’s do it. If Usyk signs up for a fight, it’s not worth it. If Tyson signs up for a fight, it’s not worth it. There was a proposal for them to discuss how it is and what it will be. I say let’s put all the money in our pocket. The winner will take 60% and the loser will take 40%. This is my idea. What else can I say? Let’s just say, will the prince come back with his proposal? We do not know. At the moment the fight should happen at Wembley.
– In April?
– I don’t know. I’m not Fury’s manager.
