Usyk didn’t want to play games with Fury
The promoter of the Ukrainian world champion spoke about Oleksandr Usyk’s reaction to the failure of the duel with the British.
Usyk did not want to become a victim of Tyson Fury’s games, therefore, when he realized that the fight would not take place, he decided to stop the negotiations. This was told by the promoter of the owner of the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight belts Alexander Krasyuk.
According to the functionary, his client was not disappointed by what happened, but rather tired, because he was intensively preparing for the fight.
“Usyk was not disappointed. He was exhausted by everything that happened. Alexander stayed in the training camp for three months and worked hard. He needs a goal to motivate himself. And when there is a roller coaster twice a day and the direction changes, you you can stay focused.
So at one point, Usyk realized that, most likely, the fight would not take place. In particular, he came to this conclusion because he had read Tyson’s book. I’m not sure if Fury wrote it himself, but it does say he’s used these tactics in the past to get in the head of opponents. Therefore, Usyk was quite sure that this was one of Tyson’s tactics. He didn’t want to become a “victim” in a certain sense.
He realized that it was necessary to stop this, because there would be no battle anyway. The sooner we stop, the less we will lose,” Krasyuk said in an interview with the iD Boxing YouTube channel.
Earlier, Krasyuk told on whose initiative negotiations on the Usyk-Fury fight were terminated.
