Usik’s manager on the fight with Fury: “We never confirmed that it would be on December 23”
Egis Klimas, manager of the world heavyweight champion (WBA, WBO, IBF) Alexandra Usika, noted that their team did not 100 percent confirm the information that the fight with Fury would take place on December 23.
“We never confirmed 100 percent that the fight date would be December 23rd. There was a lot of speculation, everyone was preparing for December 23rd. The fight with Ngannou was not easy, Tyson received several cuts. They went the full distance and we expected the fight to be postponed. Yes, it wasn’t a surprise...” said the functionary.
Let us remind you that Usik’s confrontation with Fury will take place on February 17 in Saudi Arabia.
