WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) turned to WBC belt holder Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs).
“Fury, you're thinking of greatness in boxing. At the same time you say: Give me a lot of money. Greatness in boxing is not defined by money. Greatness comes from a winning path.
You say I avoid you, when I never did. Actually, I came to get you. I am ready to box with you even without prize money!" Usyk wrote on Twitter.
Earlier, Bob Arum said that Usyk and Fury will receive record fees in the history of boxing.
