Via Barry Holbrook: Athlete Frank Warren feels confident that he will be able to create the undisputed fight between champion Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk next.
The location for the skirmish will need to be decided, as well as generating the income the two champions will want for this important clash.
Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) will probably want a lot of money for him to get into the fight, as he wouldn’t make any sense if he just lost less than what he got against Anthony Joshua.
In a way, Fury would be better off fighting Joshua than Usyk if money is the main thing he’s looking for.
So far, Saudi Arabia has not made an offer to host the war in their own country, and it is unclear whether they will accept. Holding the war in that country would help financially, but it might not be big enough to interest them.
“My opinion about what happened in the ring is really simple. He [Anthony Joshua] think he won and say what he said and try to find the situation again,” Frank Warren told iFL TV about his comments on why Anthony Joshua reacted the way he did after his loss to Oleksandr Usyk last Saturday.
“I could be wrong. I’m not a doctor. I don’t consider myself a psychologist or a doctor. That’s for other promoters. I’m always with Tyson. I don’t have a problem with what. he said he said he would beat them both [Joshua and Usyk]. I agree with him that he can
“He said these two were made for me. I shouldn’t think they’re too happy. Surname [DAZN] made the deal and thought he [Joshua] would win the war, but he didn’t win it. They don’t like belts, so what world title would you fight for if you didn’t like belts?
“We talked before the fight and they were free agents,” Warren said, when asked if he would start talking to Team Usyk to fight Tyson Fury. “Manager Alex and Egis, no problem with either. They are good people, and there will be no problem in carrying out this fight.
“The point is where it will take place, and generate the income to please both fighters. No,” Warren said whether there was any approach from Saudi Arabia in staging the Fury-Usyk fight there.
