Tyson Fury was in attendance at the Vasyl Lomachenko vs Richard Commey mega event this weekend. Whether he expected it or not, there was also someone else in attendance who has the ability to turn Fury’s career around.
The former undisputed cruiserweight champion and the current unified heavyweight champion, Oleksandr Usyk, was sitting right next to the ring, supporting his teammate Vasyl Lomachenko.
Later, Tyson Fury was asked to share his thoughts on the current heavyweight champion from Ukraine in an interview. ‘The Gypsy King’ seemed jovial in the video and even asked to grab drinks with someone; he made his thoughts on Oleksandr Usyk very clear with one single message.
“Usyk can suck my b***s,” said Tyson Fury.
Both Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury want Anthony Joshua to step aside
After securing a knockout win over Deontay Wilder in October 2021, Tyson Fury conveyed his desire to go after anyone who has the belts next.
Amid talks of a fight with Dillian Whyte on the lines, Tyson Fury now wants Anthony Joshua to step aside and let him fight Oleksandr Usyk.
“I want him to step aside so I can absolutely batter Oleksandr Usyk. If he does he does and if he doesn’t it doesn’t happen. But one thing I will say is get the f*** on with it, either take the money and f**k off or fight the man either way one or the other.
He can talk to my advisor on what is going on with people and step-aside money because I don’t get involved at all,” said Fury.
With Oleksandr Usyk sitting atop Anthony Joshua’s old throne, Fury recently said in an interview that he wants Anthony Joshua to step aside for an undisputed heavyweight championship clash.
On the other hand, when asked if he would be open to Joshua stepping aside, Usyk welcomed the idea as well and said that it would be “one step less” for him.
“Yes, of course, it’s one step less. I could fight for the undisputed heavyweight title,” said Oleksandr Usyk.
