Usyk: Fury is afraid of me
Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs) in an interview with IFL TV commented on recent statements Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs), who spoke disparagingly about the Ukrainian and claimed that he would like to receive $ 500 million in fees for the fight with the winner of the August Usyk-Joshua fight.
“Tyson says he doesn't want to fight me because I'm not at his level. He's afraid of me!" - said the WBA, WBO and IBF world heavyweight champion.
Commenting on the financial expectations of the Gypsy King, Usyk first laughed out loud, and then added: “He must be joking! 500 million? Who will give him 500 million? I want that too, so what?!”
While Usyk will defend his champion titles in a fight with Anthony Joshua on August 20. A possible unification fight with Fury could allegedly take place in December this year.
