Who if not Usyk. Tyson Fury named 3 names


WBC world heavyweight champion (over 101.6 kg), British representative Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) gave
interview for a local news portal in the presence of his father, John Fury.

Tyson responded to his comment that his fight for the title of absolute world champion against the unified champion from Ukraine Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) will be more than the fight against ex-champion from Britain Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KO). Fury also named the names of the people with whom he will fight if the fight with Usyk does not take place.

– You told me yesterday that you are against Usyk – the fight is much bigger than you are against Joshua. They said that you would earn twice as much with Usyk. Your father disagrees.

— [обращается к отцу] How do you disagree? If this fight is in Britain, then there is a certain amount of money that we can make with Joshua. But if Usyk and I go to Saudi Arabia and fight there, then I heard that they will pay big dollars.

– In my opinion, you against Joshua in Saudi Arabia is a bigger fight than Usyk with you in Saudi Arabia.

– Wait a minute, I was clearly told that the Saudis are only interested in a duel for the absolute champion. And Joshua can’t put anything on the line. He has no belts. There is nothing. He has nothing to offer. So the Saudis are only interested in fighting for the absolute champion.

I was offered a fight with a sausage (Joshua) in December. The fight did not take place, and we offer them again. And since I propose, it will no longer be 40%. Now it has dropped to 20%. Because every time they say no, they get a smaller percentage. And the longer it will be, the more years will pass, the lower this percentage will be. It will drop to 10, 8, 5, 3, half a percent.

  • Usyk has to fight Dubois first? The director of the Ukrainian team answers

I wanted to hear your reaction to the Daniel Dubois situation.

— What did he do?

– He became the mandatory challenger to Oleksandr Usyk.

“Shit, I didn’t know about that.” Great fight.

– Frank Warren said that if you don’t fight Usyk, then this is the way. He was made the mandatory challenger to Oleksandr Usyk.

– The flag is in their hands. Once sanctioned, then let them fight. Everyone is like that – here, this is the way to organize a fight for the title of absolute champion. I don’t care about the absolute champion. Look, I know unification fights are more important than mandatory defenses.

– Right.

“So this is it. If our fight with Usyk can’t take place for reasons x, y, z, then I’m sure they will have to fight Hrgovic, Daniel Dubois and Joe Joyce. And at this time I will fight with Dave Allen, David Price, and I also do not mind a trilogy with John McDermott [смех Джона Фьюри]. Just for balance.

Some people think they will beat you.

“So there it is. Listen, this will be the order. Usyk has Daniel Dubois first, then Filip Hrgovic, I think, and then Joe Joyce. He has three mandatory contenders to deal with before he can think of anything else if this undisputed title fight doesn’t happen. At the same time, I have no mandatory challengers and obligations, and I will fight Dave Allen, Dave the “White Unicorn”. I’m going to fight David Price, bring him back from retirement for a fight of envy that never happened. And a big John McDermott. If he’s watching – an Essex legend, I don’t mind a trilogy with you either.
