Tyson Fury : "Usyk Knows He Lost"

Tyson Fury refuses to concede defeat, claiming he outboxed Oleksandr Usyk in their undisputed heavyweight title fight last May. Usyk, the undefeated Ukrainian, secured a split decision victory in Saudi Arabia, becoming boxing's first four-belt heavyweight champion.

Fury, still riled by the outcome, took to his YouTube channel to declare, 

"I've watched the fight back, and I still think I won. Usyk knows he didn't beat me."

He went further, suggesting he underestimated Usyk's skills. "It was actually a lot easier than I thought it'd be," Fury said. 

"My problem was I probably had too much fun. It was like I was in there with a local amateur boxer."

Usyk, a 2012 Olympic gold medalist and former undisputed cruiserweight champion, boasts an unblemished 22-fight professional record. Despite the judges' scores (115-112, 114-113 for Usyk, and 114-113 for Fury), the Englishman remains unconvinced.

A rematch is already set for December 21st, with Fury vowing to reclaim his belts.

 "I've got to get him out of there because I'm not gonna get a decision," he declared. "It's unfortunate... I've got to knock him out."

Rumors swirl about a potential complication – the IBF sanctioning body might strip Usyk of his belt for not fulfilling a mandatory defense. Usyk has requested an "exception" to retain the belt for the rematch.

With lingering controversy and a fiery Fury seeking vengeance, the December fight promises an explosive encounter to determine the undisputed heavyweight king.
