"Treat Tyson as the great champion he is. Stop trying to be the A-side. Usyk is not Tyson's equal. Fall in line and you'll get the fight done. Do not respect Tyson and you won't get the fight, simple as that. Tyson's the A-side and Usyk is not worthy of 50-50, he couldn’t sell the O2 Arena out. So fall in line and you might get the fight,” said John Fury.
