Oleksandr Usyk, the holder of the WBA, WBO, and IBF heavyweight titles, has voiced his thoughts on a potential fight with Tyson Fury, the WBC title holder. The Ukrainian boxer expressed confidence in his team's ability to satisfy Fury's financial expectations to arrange the bout.
In a light-hearted tone, Usyk noted that their task is to "feed" Fury, who, in his words, is "hungry" and demands a significant sum to participate in the fight. Usyk is confident they will raise the necessary funds for the organization of the match.
These comments came in the wake of unsuccessful discussions between Usyk and Fury regarding a potential fight in April.
"I think our fight with Fury will happen. We need to feed the pot-bellied man and that's all. The pot-bellied man is Tyson Fury. He's just hungry and wants a lot of money. We're raising money now to feed him and then beat him up," Usyk was quoted by TVP Sport.
