Tyson Fury, the reigning WBC super heavyweight champion, recently divulged some insights into the ongoing talks surrounding a potential clash with the current WBA, WBO, IBA, and IBF belt holder, Oleksandr Usyk.
In a recent statement, the British boxer clarified that he has not been personally involved in any negotiations with Usyk's team.
"I no longer take part in solving business issues, because I feel a lot of stress and anxiety about it. So I prefer not to take part in it, because in boxing I realized that fights cannot be arranged immediately, as I want.”
“If the amount suits me, then I agree. But these guys like to drag things out for months and even years. That's why I don't participate in this shit. I pay millions of dollars to my lawyers and promoters for this work - I let them do it," Fightnews quoted Tyson Fury as saying.
The highly anticipated bout to determine the undisputed super heavyweight world champion between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury is rumored to be scheduled for April 29th, although the contract has yet to be formally signed.
According to Alex Krassyuk, the representative of the Ukrainian boxer, the momentous occasion will take place at London's iconic Wembley Stadium. However, journalist Michael Benson, who is privy to inside information, has raised concerns about the likelihood of the fight materializing.
The situation has also garnered the attention of Frank Warren, Fury's promoter, who acknowledged that unresolved issues in the negotiation process may potentially prevent the much-anticipated clash between the two titans from coming to fruition.
Usyk's team has also indicated that should they fail to reach an agreement with Fury's camp, the Ukrainian will instead engage in a match against Daniel Dubois.
