Usyk told what Fury demanded during the negotiations

WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) told what fantastic financial demands were put forward by WBC belt holder Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs).

“There were basic rules from him – 70 on 30, he didn’t want a rematch, then he comes out second. I went for everything. I turn in my direction: I go out with Anthony Joshua second, because I am already a world champion, and according to the rules, this is allowed for me. But if I went into the ring first, it’s because I’m number one. I twist psychologically such a moment. It doesn’t matter to me whether you are the first to enter the ring or the second. The main thing is who you come out with – a winner or a loser.

The main thing is that this fight should take place, because the whole boxing world is waiting for it, even people who have never followed boxing. I’m driving home, I stop at a gas station, and an elderly woman says: “Sasha, what does he want?” I answer: “I don’t know, he wants a lot of money.” She: “Maybe give him a mug.” I say, “He doesn’t want to.” She says: “Maybe we’ll get together somewhere and give him a mug?” A woman who was generally far from boxing is watching what is happening, ”Usyk said.

The Fury-Usyk fight was supposed to take place on April 29, the Ukrainian was already preparing for the fight. According to rumors, the parties did not agree on the distribution of the fee in a possible rematch.
