Tyson Fury Apparently Wants Oleksandr Usyk For Undisputed

The heavyweight division has never been on fire more than now with unified champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13KO) remaining the king after defeating Anthony “AJ” Joshua (24-3, 22KO) in the rematch. After being called out by Usyk, WBC champion Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury (32-0-1, 23KO) swiftly responds.

The rematch almost did not happen due to Russia invading the champions country of Ukraine. Yet, Usyk dealing with emotions, entered the ring and once again boxed beautifully and won via split decision. Some boxing pundits believe he should have won by a unanimous decision victory.


Nonetheless, he sits atop of the division as king. Or does he? The Gypsy King may have a thing, or two to say about that, as he fancies himself as the number heavyweight. During the post-fight interview, Usyk wasted little time claiming it was either Fury or no deal. The unified champ threatened retirement if undisputed with the WBC champion was a no go.


Fury’s status has been unclear for months. One minute he is retired, the next, he is not. The WBC even gave a deadline date for their champion to turn in the belt. Yet, Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, may have explained it best by saying the WBC had no power in the situation.

Boxing fans brief minutes of sadness, thinking once again of the Charlie Brown moment having the rug pulled from underneath, can rejoice in knowing that Fury took to social media and said what everyone already knew but were glad to hear.

“Get your fucking checkbook out cause the Gyspy King is here to stay forever.”
