Usyk reveals when he wants to fight Fury

WBA, WBO, IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) said that his team is looking for an opportunity to organize a fight with WBC title holder Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs). The words of the Ukrainian boxer are quoted by the Belfast Telegraph:

"Right now my team is looking to talk to Tyson Fury and he's a really unpredictable person so we can't guarantee when the conversation will happen.

For me, the idea would be to fight maybe in early February or early March, like March 4th, because I am an Orthodox Christian. During Lent before Easter, I do not box, so everything should be before or after Orthodox Easter (April 16).

I want to fight Fury because I need the fourth belt, and I don't want to fight anyone else until I get a fourth belt."
