Tyson Fury‘s co-promoter Frank Warren revealed in an interview with talkSPORT on Tuesday that ‘The Gypsy King’ has instructed him to make a fight with unified champion Oleksandr Usyk next.
Fury, to the surprise of nobody, announced he is no longer retired from the sport following Usyk’s split-decision victory over Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia on Saturday, and now hopes to clash with the Ukrainian himself in a mega fight which would crown the first undisputed heavyweight champion in over two decades.
Usyk himself has expressed his desire to face the thirty-four-year-old Morecambe man in the ring, and stated that it is the only fight he will stay fighting for following his victory at the weekend. The Ukrainian has endured an unfathomably difficult six months following the invasion of his country Ukraine at the hands of the Russian regime in February and provided the country with a much needed lift with another stellar performance on Saturday versus an inspired Joshua.
Fury posted on his Instagram story on Tuesday afternoon saying, “the biggest fight has to be the world’s biggest money…if I’m to put it all on the line versus some foreigner”.
