The President of TopRank promotion company, Todd DeBeouf, remains optimistic that Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury can negotiate a fight for all the heavyweight titles.
“Of course, we are all very disappointed. I think there was a problem with the limited amount of time we had to organize the fight. But never say never because everyone wants to see a fight for all the titles. I’m sure Fury and Usyk both understand that the fans want to see this fight.”
“There is motivation, just there were problems with time. It will be fantastic if we can still do this fight later this year,” said Debef.
There is still no information available about Fury's immediate plans, but Usyk will have to conduct mandatory defenses.
