Unified heavyweight title fight all but decided


The planned match between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk to be the first undisputed and unified world heavyweight champion since 2000 It is headed for permanent cancellation. Usyk’s promoter, Alex Krassyuk, He said on Wednesday that the Ukrainian team had closed negotiations because Fury was “putting up a lot of obstacles for the deal to go through.”

Usyk, WBA, WBO and IBF championsaid on social media last week that he accepted Fury’s terms for a scheduled fight at April 29 in Londonwith the a 70-30 purse of fight wins in favor of the WBC title holder.

The WBA has given them until April 1 to officially close the deal, otherwise Usyk will have to make a mandatory title defense. “We felt that after Usyk conceded 70-30, Tyson Fury thought he could put a saddle on Usyk’s neck and ride all he wanted. And that’s not right,” Krassyuk told the broadcaster. British talkSPORT.

“Usyk accepted the 70-30 deal. He was very loyal and was willing to see this fight happen. But if this fight doesn’t happen it’s because of Tyson Fury. It’s about the WBC belt and (Usyk) expanding his collection.” he added. Fury has yet to say this mouth is mine and if the deal for the fight has gone through.

The last undisputed and unified world heavyweight champion was Lennox Lewis in 1999-2000. Krassyuk previously said Usyk could fight British boxer Daniel Dubois, who holds the regular WBA title and is Usyk’s official opponent.
