Tyson Fury hurled insults at Oleksandr Usyk as the Ukrainian stared him down on the edge of the apron after The Gypsy King’s dominant victory over Derek Chisora tonight. Fury stopped Del Boy in the tenth round after hurting him multiple times throughout the fight and now turns his attention to the undisputed fight against his fierce rival.
“Usyk, you little b**** you’re next. Me and you Usyk, you’re next sucker. You little rabbit you’re getting it next. P****. Fifteen-stone little midget beat a bodybuilder well I’m not a bodybuilder,” said Fury.
“I’ve already done one Ukrainian Klitschko and I’ll do you too gappy teeth. You ugly little man. Let’s get it on. You may laugh, but I will end you, you little sucker. What are you going to do? You’re going to do nothing.”
Usyk standing motionless, never took his eyes off Fury as he smirked at every expletive sentence. The perfect promo for a fight that is so important to world boxing.
Usyk vs Fury is being targeted for a date between February 18 and March 4 in the Middle East according to The Cat’s promoter Alexander Krassyuk. Fury had offered Usyk a date in December.
However, the unified heavyweight champion ruled himself out of competition until early 2023 to allow himself time to recover from his rematch with Anthony Joshua in August. Both men will be hoping they can stage the four-belt shoot-out next but that is providing all of the major sanctioning bodies comply – which as we have seen time and time again is easier said than done.
