Many have been wondering how Oleksander Usyk felt following the postponement of his undisputed world heavyweight championship bout with Tyson Fury. The Ukrainian recently spoke for himself.
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury formerly announced that he got an eye injury while sparring with Agron Smakici, causing the undisputed world heavyweight bout which was to hold on February 17 to be moved to May 18.
Speaking to Sky Sports recently, the WBA, WBO, and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksander Usyk revealed that he did not think Tyson Fury was lying about how the wound occured.
‘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.’
Usyk said during the session that he loved Tyson Fury more after the development, and gave few reasons for that.
‘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.’
Given what was put into the preparation, most would like to know what Usyk felt about the possibly-fast training he was undergoing.
‘I didn’t even have any irritation inside. No frustration. 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. 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.’
Though pundits like George Groves and Carl Froch are skeptical, many still think the fight will happen.See Dollar(USD) to Naira Black Market Exchange Rate Today!
