Oleksandr Usyk’s manager Egis Klimas hits out at Tyson Fury after talks break down
| News Today | abc News
Oleksandr Usyk’s manager Egis Klimas has slammed Tyson Fury now that it appears talks have collapsed for the pair to meet next.
Negotiations have been underway since November with backers in the Middle East trying to hammer out a deal for the undisputed heavyweight title fight.
Fury was ordered to defend his WBC belt against Dillian Whyte next, while Anthony Joshua activated his contract clause for a rematch with WBA, IBF and WBO champion Usyk.
However, interest from the Middle East has resulted in a potential plan to pay both Joshua and Whyte to step down so Fury vs Usyk can take place first.
On Wednesday night, the WBC set a Friday “final” deadline for Fury vs. Whyte purse deals, meaning any deal for Fury vs. Usyk should be done by then.
Shortly after, the Gypsy King released a video calling Hearn and Joshua ‘the worst businessmen in history’ and claiming they had ‘lost $90 million’ – appearing to indicate the talks had broken down. collapsed.
Hearn has since claimed in an interview with talkSPORT.com that Fury has decided he doesn’t want to face Usyk next and will now fight Whyte.
The Gypsy King posted a video Thursday morning threatening Whyte and also uploaded a fight poster with the caption: ‘Who else can’t wait for the fight!? Britain’s finest.
Prior to this unfolding, Fury made several videos insulting Usyk as he called him a “p***y” and baselessly accused him of being a drug cheater.
It didn’t go well with the Ukrainian team.
Usyk’s manager, Klimas, tweeted to Fury on Thursday: “Yo man before next time you will mention checking Oleksandr Usyk’s name with your team, management, advisers, promoters who agreed to all the terms and conditions.
“Looks like you’re the one holding this wagon screaming.
“Talking is cheap @Tyson_Fury.”
