Oleksandr Usyk: With God’s Help, I Will Finish All This Work, I’ll Be Able To Box Three Tyson Furys

Boxing Scene

IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk is not holding any animosity towards WBC king Tyson Fury.

The two were scheduled to collide on February 17 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Last week, the fight was postponed after Fury suffered a severe cut during a sparring session in training camp.

The contest was quickly pushed back to a new date of May 18.

Despite the delays, Usyk explains that he’s not holding a grudge.

“Why? Because it’s the man who has my fourth belt. It’s the man who helped me become famous a lot. Because we, all people, must love friends, [people who are] not friends, acquaintances, all people. It’s great when you are polite, not dirty,” Usyk said.

Usyk detailed that his training camp was going very well.

“I just looked back at all the work I’ve done – getting up early, jogging, swimming, sparring, the amount of all it, and I thought to myself: ‘Wow, that’s some good work I did.’ Then I thought of how much more training I will do and how much good work I will do,” Usyk said.

“So when, with God’s help, I will finish all this work, I’ll be able to box three Tyson Furys. We can do it simultaneously or one by one on Saturday, Sunday, and then Monday.”

While some observers are not fully convinced by the photos of Fury’s cut, and how the cut was generated, Usyk is just focused on pushing forward.

“What will change if I watch a video and start shouting ‘it’s fake’ or ‘it’s not fake?’ Nothing will change. What happened – happened. Being nervous because of that means only wasting your own energy,” Usyk said.

“Is it serious or not? Does he want to box or not? He says he wants to become an undisputed [champion] but he doesn’t take some of his training seriously enough. In general, I don’t want to judge Tyson Fury, I’m just trying to say that it happens sometimes – what people plan, sometimes, doesn’t correlate with our Lord’s plans.”
