Krassyuk Doubts Usyk-Fury Fight Will Happen on May 18th

Alexander Krassyuk, the promoter of Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs), expresses doubts that the fight between Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) and the Ukrainian for the undisputed heavyweight championship (over 90.7 kg) will take place as scheduled on May 18th in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Krassyuk's doubts stem from Fury's actions and the suspicious injury he sustained during sparring:

"Am I sure the fight will happen on May 18th? Absolutely not. I'm not sure about anything when it comes to Tyson Fury. I'll believe it when I hear the first gong," said Krassyuk.

It's worth mentioning that the fight initially scheduled for February 17th between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk was postponed to May 18th.
