But Team Usyk pulled the plug on the bout after being given the run around by the WBC heavyweight champion and giving into his outrageous 70-30 purse split demand.

And Fury co-promoter Bob Arum has revealed the former undisputed cruiserweight king was in line to take home a cool £15million for the Wembley war.

He told Steve Kim: “If Usyk was in London, he was pretty well guaranteed between £12m-£15m (close to being $20M).”

Fury vs Usyk was originally due to take place in Saudi Arabia, with both fighters set to receive a 50-50 split of the lucrative purse.

And according to Arum, both men stood to make a whopping £48m for the desert dust-up.

He continued: “But he [Usyk] had talked previously to the Saudis who were interested in doing this fight but not until the winter.

“They had apparently agreed to pay him $60m.”

Usyk, 36, is now in talks to face Brit Daniel Dubois – the mandatory challenger for his WBA heavyweight crown.


But Triple D could be offered a step-aside deal in order for Usyk to have a summer showdown with Fury.

Fury and Dubois’ promoter Frank Warren told talkSPORT: “If Usyk remains undefeated then there is a chance to get that done if it goes on in Saudi.

“The other option is – Daniel Dubois is now the official mandatory – if there was a step aside situation and do the fight in July.”

Usyk and Fury’s failure to finalise their clash was recently slammed by Anthony Joshua – who returns to the ring on Saturday night.

“But I’m just so happy that I can get back to work and get on with my job.

“I’m looking forward to this assignment and I can’t wait.

“Honestly, I’m really looking forward to it.”

The basics of boxing are:

  • Punching techniques
  • Guarding techniques
  • Footwork
  • Stance
  • Move your body
  • Defense
  • Combination
  • Rotation
  • Sparring

Punching Techniques

There are seven types. Each punch is unique. Some punches are more powerful than others. For example, an uppercut requires great force. A straight punch on the other side requires less power, but is more effective than other punches.

There are many combinations that can be used to punch. These are combinations of punches that work together to achieve a specific goal. One combination can have many parts. An example of this is a left hook, followed by a right crossing. This will damage the opponent’s jaw.

Guard Techniques

A boxer uses his body to protect himself against attacks. He does this by using his legs.


Boxers should use their legs to defend against kicks. He raises his leg when he is hit with a kick and then moves away from the opponent. If the attack comes from the front, then he bends his knees to avoid being kicked on the side. If the attack is from the side, he will bend his knees to avoid being kicked on the side.


Because they inflict pain, elbow strikes can be very effective. You can deliver an elbow strike directly or indirectly. Directly means that you hit your opponent with your forearm while indirectly means that you hit him with another part of your arm.


Boxers use their arms to stop incoming blows. To do this, they raise their fists higher than their heads and move their arms in the direction that the attack is coming. The attacker’s fist is then in their face.

To absorb the impact of a punch to the stomach, abdomen, or chest, boxers should bend their knees. Knee strikes are often used for defense purposes.


Boxers should respond to being attacked by their opponent by standing back and delivering counter-attacks. He can then gain distance from his opponent. In addition, when delivering a counter-attack, a boxer should keep his balance.


Boxing is only possible if a boxer has a clear stance. His stance determines how he defends himself. It is how he positions himself and where he faces the opponent. Boxers can take many different stances. These are some of our most favorite:

  • Low stance
  • High stance
  • Southpaw stance
  • Western stance

Move your body

A boxer must change his position, speed and rhythm in order to win the fight. This requires changing your position, speed, and rhythm.


Boxers rotate their arms when they throw a punch. Depending on the type and size of punch, the speed at which the rotation takes place varies.

The timing of each individual punch affects the effectiveness or failure of a combination. A combination is good if it starts with a strong punch then ends with a weaker one.

Spare parts

Sparring is a form of boxing that aims to improve your skills. A sparring session is where a boxer trains both his mind and his body. The goal of sparring is to learn to fight, and not to get hurt.

You need to have patience and dedication in order to learn how boxing works. Boxing is a sport that requires dedication and perseverance.
