Hrgovic plans to disrupt Usyk-Fury title unification

Mandatory contender promoter for IBF heavyweight title Philip Hrgovic Kalle Sauerland confirmed that the Croatian boxer wants to fight the WBA, WBO, IBO and IBF champion as soon as possible Oleksandr Usyk, thereby preventing him from arranging unification with the owner of the WBC belt Tyson Fury.

“Hrgovic has been waiting for the final eliminator for a year and a half. He defeated Zhang Zhilei in a tough fight and now the IBF has declared a mandatory defense.

The IBF announced Fury's fight against Vyacheslav Glazkov for the Monday following Tyson's fight with Klitschko after he beat the man who held the title for ten years. That's what the IBF does. She follows the letter of the law. We expect them to do so. We immediately called for a promotional auction. We are rational people, so you can talk to us.

We follow the rules. We approached the IBF and said we wanted an immediate promotional bid because no one had contacted us. This is a difficult situation, but now we want promotional bidding. I don't handle Usyk's business. He is a great fighter, whom I was very happy to promote in the World Boxing Super Series. I'm taking care of Hrgovic's business and he'll get his chance," Sky Sports quoted Sauerland as saying.

Recall that earlier the IBF appointed Hrgovic as the official contender for the champion title according to their version, which Usyk owns.
