CEO of the promotion company K2 Promotions Alexander Krasyuk told when WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) realized that there would be no fight with WBC belt holder Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs).
“Usyk was not disappointed. He was exhausted by everything that had happened. Alexander stayed in the training camp for three months and worked hard. He needs a goal to motivate himself. And when there are rollercoasters twice a day and direction changes, you can’t 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 his opponents. Therefore, Usyk was quite sure that this was one of Tyson’s tactics. He did not 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 lose,” Krasyuk said in an interview with the iD Boxing YouTube channel.
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.
