Tyson Fury laughs and mocks Eddie Hearn over claims that he pulled out of Oleksandr Usyk undisputed title fight

TYSON FURY has mocked Eddie Hearn over claims from the boxing promoter that the Gyspy King ‘pulled out’ of an undisputed title fight against Oleksandr Usyk.

Usyk is currently contracted to a rematch with AJ, having beaten the British superstar in September for the WBA, IBF and WBO belts.

But Middle Eastern backers were leading talks for the Ukrainian to instead face WBC champion Fury in a historic four-belt unification.

But Hearn has said that Fury was never interested in facing Usyk next.

Now Fury has quite literally laughed off Hearn’s claims.

The WBC heavyweight king uploaded a video to Instagram, tagging in the Matchroom boss.

He said: “Finished in the gym, I couldn’t be any happier boys and girls.

“I am in a very good mood, for very lots of reasons. That’s all I’ve got to say”, before the champ let out a huge belly laugh.

Usyk is currently contracted to a rematch with AJ, having beaten the British superstar in September for the WBA, IBF and WBO belts.

And Fury looks set to take on his WBC mandatory challenger, fellow Brit Dillian Whyte.

ESPN is reporting that there was an agreement for Joshua and Whyte to ‘step aside’ – but then this ‘fell apart after the parties attempted to renegotiate at the 11th hour’.

Fuyr retweeted this train of though, adding: “It’s called greed.”

Hearn told iFL TV: “The reality of the situation is; we would be willing to see a long-form agreement with a plan for AJ.

“But we’re not even at that stage. Tyson Fury had the opportunity to discuss – Fury doesn’t want to fight Usyk, in my opinion.

“Because he had the opportunity to do it through these discussions and really, when it came down to it, he really don’t want to.

“What Fury wants to do is have a little easy one in March, that’s what he really wants to do.

“Now, he’s going to have to fight Dillian Whyte, and by the way, after all of this kerfuffle, he’ll get beat by Dillian Whyte, he’ll get knocked out by Dillian Whyte.

“But the reality is, when it really came down to it, he never wanted to fight Oleksandr Usyk.

“Because he could’ve gone straight into a fight with Oleksandr Usyk, but he didn’t want to go straight into a fight with Oleksandr Usyk.

“But you won’t ever hear that and the public won’t ever hear that. You’ll just hear Fury on Instagram, screaming and shouting with smoking mirrors.”
