Usyk on Fury's Antics: "He's Afraid"

Reacting to Tyson Fury's recent verbal outbursts and confrontational stance during their pre-fight face-off, WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO, and The Ring heavyweight world champion, Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs), offered a straightforward interpretation. 

"I don't pay attention to what he says. A lot of talking. Just a talking head. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah," 

Usyk expressed, indicating indifference to Fury's provocations. When probing about Fury's behavior, Usyk suggested, "Why does Tyson act like that? A person acts like that when one is afraid or not or unsure of something."

The highly anticipated fight for the super heavyweight division's absolute championship between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury is scheduled for February 17 in Saudi Arabia.
