WBA, WBO and IBF title holder Alexander Usik (21-0, 14 KOs) said that he believes that after the fight for the absolute heavyweight championship he will be friends with WBC champion Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs).
“It seems to me that the first version of Tyson Fury is a good guy, a family man. I think that after the fight we will be friends. But when the television is on, the camera is on, Tyson Fury changes. He becomes like an alien (imitates incomprehensible sounds – note): “You are a rabbit, you are a bitch, you are a light heavyweight.” For me, this is a show,” Usyk said in an interview with the Boxing King Media YouTube channel.
The meeting will take place on February 17, 2024 in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia).
