Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk Set the Stage for Undisputed Bout

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury (34-0-1, 24KO) was as animated as ever in the official press conference for the undisputed showdown with unified champion Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14KO).

Boxing fans were a little worried when the original fight date of December 23 was called off, after The Gypsy King laid an egg against Francis Ngannou on October 28. With the fight now scheduled to take place on February 17, boxing fans got the first look at the two fighters in an intense face-off.

Fury did most of the talking with the typical name-calling. For the most part, Usyk wasn’t doing a lot of talking, which was to be expected.


Things got spicy when the WBC champion claimed the Ukrainian quit from a body shot against Daniel Dubois on August 26.

“I did think so, yes. I think he got hit in the body by a good body shot, and he didn’t want to get up for five minutes.”

“I absolutely don’t care what Tyson thinks of that.”

“Here’s a question for you then, did you get hit low or not? Did he get hit low? I’ve watched boxing all my life; I didn’t think it was a low blow, it was on the belt – crawling around the floor like a little bitch, crying to the referee.”

Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, remembers that night very well as the entire team screamed foul, believing their man was cheated that night.

This exchange saw both men talking over each other, and the intensity was matched by their nose-to-nose face-off, resulting in security separating the two champions.
