“Take it or leave it p***y”: Tyson Fury claps back at Oleksandr Usyk’s promoter, claims fight can only happen in UK and snubs rumoured bout in Saudi Arabia

Ever since Tyson Fury returned from his vacation, The WBC heavyweight champion is taking shots at every single one of his rivals on social media. The Gypsy King has dissed Oleksandr Usyk, Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz for ducking a fight and for making absurd demands in the negotiations.

It seems that Fury is tired of waiting for an opponent to show up and fight. Consequently, he has warned the Ukrainian heavyweight’s promoter that the time to book this undisputed heavyweight title matchup is now. Moreover, the British heavyweight champion gave an ultimatum to Usyk’a promoter Alex Krassyuk that the fight will take place only in the United Kingdom and he has to accept 30% of the purse split.

With this statement on his Instagram story, Fury has pretty much put all the rumours of a four-man heavyweight tournament anticipated to take place in Saudi Arabia to bed. If this is true and Tyson Fury rejects all offers to fight in Saudi Arabia in December then this is a big blow.

Because fight fans all around the world were excited to see this fight finally happening after months of back and forth on social media. With that being said, it would be interesting to see how Oleksandr Usyk and his promoter react to Fury’s demands. Despite being a unified heavyweight champion, Oleksandr might have to concede to a lot of Tyson Fury’s demands in order to make this fight.

A few weeks ago, Bob Arum who is the promoter of Tyson Fury indicated that he is trying to book a fight between the WBC champion and Zhilei Zhang. Subsequently, everyone was expecting, the interim champion to be Fury’s next opponent. But it seems that Joe Joyce has put a dent in The Gypsy King’s return inside the ring as he exercised a rematch clause.

That was the only concern after Arum’s interview as they had to wait for the commission’s decision. Yesterday, Fury went on Instagram and recorded a story to give an update to his fans regarding his upcoming opponent. The British heavyweight looked frustrated as he explained that he cannot fight Zhang next because of Joe Joyce.

It is needless to say that the heavyweight division is becoming frustrating for boxing enthusiasts as the promoters are unable to book a single big fight. After the AJ vs Usyk rematch, we have hardly seen two big heavyweight stars clashing, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Wilder vs Joshua fight collapses in the future.
