‘What’s he gonna do?’ – Tyson Fury reacts to claims Oleksandr Usyk fight will be tougher than Deontay Wilder

, ‘What’s he gonna do?’ – Tyson Fury reacts to claims Oleksandr Usyk fight will be tougher than Deontay Wilder

TYSON FURY has slammed Oleksandr Usyk by questioning what the ‘pumped up middleweight’ would do against him.

The 33-year-old star faces Dillian Whyte next, in a title clash which will see him take home a staggering £24.5m of the pot.

Tyson Fury went toe-to-toe with Deontay Wilder last year to retain WBC title but discounted Oleksandr Usyk as a threat

The British heavyweight last fought Deontay Wilder in October, in which he won the trilogy decider in 11 rounds.

In an interview with DubaiEyeSport, Fury was asked if Oleksandr Usyk is tougher than his previous opponent.

The ‘Gypsy King’ emphatically answered: “Hell no.

“You’ve got the most powerful in the history of our sport [Wilder] and what’s Usyk gonna do?

“Tap dance around the ring and run away?

“He didn’t do any damage at all to Anthony Joshua and definitely ain’t doing damage to me.

“I’ll obliterate him.”

Fury then went on to describe the Ukrainian as a ‘pumped up middleweight’.

The 6ft 9in brawler also said that he would knock out Anthony Joshua for ‘bants’ if he had to.

Meanwhile, promoter Eddie Hearn – who lost out on the rights to the Fury vs Whyte clash – disagrees.

Hearn reckons that he ‘doesn’t trust’ the fellow Englishman and he will NOT fight Usyk anyway.
