“This has gone too far. After Usyk accepted section 70-30, Fury began to think that he could put a saddle on him and ride it ... He tried to avoid this fight, coming up with new and new conditions, ”Krasyuk said.

According to anonymous sources cited by ESPN, the talks ended in failure because no agreement was reached on "substantial issues other than the distribution of the overall fee."

Usyk's manager Egis Klimas also previously confirmed that Tyson Fury's fight against Oleksandr Usyk would not take place on April 29. "No matter how much Usyk compromised, he was pushed for more." Klimas also added that he hopes Usyk will return to the ring with a mandatory defense in June or July.

In this situation, Oleksandr Usyk reportedly completed his collection. The next possible opponent of the Ukrainian will be one of the mandatory contenders for the championship belt, which he owns. First in line is Daniel Dubois.
