Tyson Fury is currently the WBC heavyweight champ. Although he has the most important belt, he isn't the undisputed champ. This is because the rest of the heavyweight belts belong to Oleksandr Usyk. Overall, Usyk won these titles after winning against Anthony Joshua. Now, however, fans want to see a unification fight so that one of these fighters can grab all of the hardware for themselves. Of course, this is a fight that would do massive numbers, but there seems to be a ton of holdups.
According to TMZ, it seemed like Tyson Fury and Usyk were inching towards a fight on April 29th. However, it seems as though their fight talks have completely fallen apart. This is due to the fact that Usyk wanted special conditions for a rematch. While Fury was prepared to initiate a rematch clause, the specifics were where everything went south. Now, Fury is taking to social media, and it is clear that he is angry. In the video down below, you can see Fury unleash a bevy of insults on Usyk.
Tyson Fury Speaks
"You little slimy f***er," Fury said. "Tried all week to get out of it, begging for a rematch [clause] like a little girl. You got your rematch [clause] and didn't even want to fight at that. You little shithouse p***y. Always know, p***y, that you were never man enough to tangle with the Gypsy King ever in your life, you little s***house. You little 14-stone coward. You little s***bag, you rat little bastard." If anything, this is going to create an amazing rivalry between the two for when they do eventually get in the ring. Although for now, fans will definitely remain disappointed about this latest news.
In recent years, boxing has been plagued by an unwillingness between the best fighters to battle each other. We are seeing that in some of the lower-weight classes as well. It's an unfortunate situation for the fans, and at the end of the day, it hurts the sport as a whole. Hopefully, these two are able to figure it out and give us the show we have been hoping for.
