Alex Krassyuk Extends Fight Offer to Fury

Alex Krassyuk, the promoter for super heavyweight world champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs), has disclosed upcoming plans. According to him, Usyk's team is crafting a formal offer for Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KO), the reigning WBC world champion.

Krassyuk anticipates that Fury's team, also known as the "Gypsy King" team, will decide on the proposed fight once they've received the offer. He underscored that they have done everything within their power to arrange this bout.

"According to my knowledge, they will receive a formal written offer very soon, and it will be their decision or Tyson’s decision whether to take it or leave it because we’ve done everything possible to make this fight happen and now the ball is on Tyson’s side. If you take it, then you have a big fight, the biggest fight of your career. If you hesitate or if you try to trade out something or try to swing around, it shows that you’re not serious," he elaborated.

Красюк: «Усик молился, чтобы ему не пришлось стрелять. Однако все мы знали,  что в случае необходимости никто не будет колебаться» | Бокс | XSPORT.uaKrassyuk also issued a stern warning to Fury, suggesting that should he decline the fight with Usyk, it could signal the end of his boxing career.

"In that scenario, you have to relinquish the belt and retire, not for one month or for one week as you used to retire shortly recently but probably forever," Krassyuk was quoted by Boxing News 24.
