Alex Krassyuk, the promoter of Oleksandr Usyk, the WBA, WBO, and IBF world champion, has attributed the failure of the "Fight of the Century" to Tyson Fury's constant demands and excessive greed.
Krassyuk believes that "The Gypsy King's" actions demonstrate a lack of understanding of their repercussions, which may lead to negative consequences for him in the future, potentially leaving him stranded due to his insatiable desire for money.
"Fury once mentioned on Instagram that he never went to school. Unfortunately, he didn't have a chance to learn that greediness leads to poverty. It's a matter of fact. If you're greedy, at some point you're going to lose your money, your income. You will spend money and then you are broke - that's because you are greedy, it's selfishness.”
“If you are selfish, if you think only of yourself, and your ego grows every day, it leads to bad things. It's not just about Tyson, it's about everyone who behaves this way. If you are arrogant, you will be punished. Life will punish you, one hundred percent. If you lie, you will be exposed. If you do bad things, you will get it back. It is [the] very simple laws of life. I think now karma is returning to the big champion, the great "Gypsy King,” Krassyuk told Outbox Entertainment.
It is worth noting that the heavyweight division's unification match has not taken place in over 20 years since the legendary Lennox Lewis became the last absolute heavyweight champion. Many spectators were eager to witness a potential fight between Usyk and Fury, which had the potential to generate enormous profits for the organizers. However, Tyson Fury's insistence on receiving the entirety of the profits resulted in him leaving empty-handed.
