Tyson Fury has once again rang the excitement bells in the heart of boxing fans as he promises to punish Oleksander Usyk if the duo ever collide in the ring.
The Fury-Usyk fight is one of the biggest fights to make in 2023. Both undefeated heavyweights have expressed their willingness to step into each others’ faces but no official announcement has been made yet.
The Gypsy king decided to hang his gloves up for good after overcoming his compatriot Dillian Whyte in April. But soon had a change of mind as he came out of retirement and bashed Derek Chisora earlier this month.
Now he has his eyes set on the Ukrainian Oleksander Usyk, who holds the IBF, IBO, WBO, and WBA titles. The WBC titlist, Fury has communicated his evil intentions if the pair ever collide in the ring.
“I don’t think he’s big enough and strong enough to stand up to the punches… It’s a challenge, but he’ll be running away like a little b**ch all night. I will hunt him down, and when I get hold of him, he’ll be crushed,” said Tyson Fury.
Usyk hasn’t got any opponent as of now. And with the Gypsy King itching to get his hand on him, it would be a perfect opportunity for the undefeated southpaw to give a shutdown to the loud-mouthed 6’9″ Brit.
As far as official papers work is concerned, Fury’s longtime promoter, Frank Warren is hopeful to get both parties on the same page and give the fans the fight they have been wanting for so long.
