Krasyuk: "In AJ's place, I would take compensation"

Alexander Krasyuk, promoter Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs), claims that for Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) temporarily refusing (in exchange for a generous fee) an immediate revenge with his protégé may turn out to be a wise financial decision. According to Krasyuk, AJ would have made a lot of money without entering the ring at all, and then he would have had a chance to box for four belts with the winner of the unification bout Usyk - Tyson Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs).

“Think about it theoretically... What are his options now? If this is true, with that £15 million, will he make more money for the Usyk fight? I don't know, maybe something like that, but will it be a risky duel for him? Definitely yes!" - the promoter of the WBA, WBO and IBF world heavyweight champion explained his position in an interview with Boxing Social.

“If Joshua loses to Usyk for the second time, his future will be in question. If he takes "compensation", then I think that he is guaranteed a fight with the best of the Fury-Usyk pair, he will be able to fight for the absolute championship, which in my opinion will be a big advantage for him. If I were AJ, I would seriously think about it, ”Krasyuk added, and when asked about Usyka’s reaction to the idea of ​​fighting Fury, he replied:“ He said: OK, let's see what we can do, we'll try!
