Tyson Fury “could slap or pop” Oleksandr Usyk tells Sugarhill Manager
Via Craig Daly: Coach Sugarhill Steward believes Tyson Fury could carry out his threat to slap or hit Oleksandr Usyk if he saw him tonight in the ring during a fight with Derek Chisora.
Interestingly, Fury’s threat to slap Usyk is getting as much attention as his fight with Chisora. That’s not a good sign.
It suggests that the boxing public is less interested in his bout with Chisora, 38, and more interested in discussing his potential next bout with the undefeated Usyk. Fans are convinced that Fury is afraid of Usyk.
If Fury slaps or tries to slap him, that will give doubters that he has the guts to do so, at least.
Of course, Fury still needs to fight Usyk to prove he’s not dodging him for fear of ruining his record, which has only a few good names worth mentioning.
Sugarhill indicated that Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) was retired when he said he would be doing so earlier this year. So, if Fury does do that, he can take his oath to slap unified heavyweight champion Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs).
Usyk is pretty tough, and Fury should think clearly before trying to take him down after the fight.
If Fury recklessly throws a wild weeder, he may regret doing so as Usyk intercepts it and counterattacks him with a blow to the head or body to get him onto the tarp first. fan witness at the Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium in London.
“Yeah, he said he was going to retire, right? Is he retired? Yes, he did. Therefore, there is a good chance that he can slap him or hit him,” the SugarHill manager told Queensbury by Frank Warren when asked if Tyson Fury would carry out his threat to slap Oleksandr Usyk in the face if he saw him in the ring tonight against Derek Chisora at Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium.
“He can change his mind. He could come in very close contact and then come back, come back,” ParisFury said of Fury being able to get close but then not contact Usyk.
“To my knowledge, Oleksandr Usyk was offered to fight for this day [December 3rd]. So if he wanted it so badly, he’d probably be here tonight,” Paris said.
Sugarhill said of Usyk: “He was asked to join the battle, but then suddenly showed up.
“I’m not sure what was going on there, but obviously, it made for a great fight,” Paris Fury said of Usyk’s presence during Fury’s fight with Chisora.
“It is the unifying title. So if that happens that’s great, but on the other hand, we see these things being provided and expected to happen, but they don’t show up.
“It would be great, but he [Usyk] What Tyson did in the ring tonight was no different,” Paris said.
Of course, Usyk’s presence won’t change what goes on inside the ring. The reason why Usyk was in the ring was important was to spy on Fury and start hyping up the fight between him and Tyson.
For Usyk, the more pay-per-view purchases, the better, and the way to achieve that is to start generating interest in the clash as soon as possible, starting tonight.
“I don’t think he’ll be there. He will be very scared. He’s going to stay out,” Paris said when asked if Anthony Joshua would appear in the ring tonight. “I want to see that fight happen. Tyson wanted it, and the fans wanted it.
“Whether it is as believable as it was a year or two ago is not. Anthony has lost a few times and Tyson has continued to win, but it will be a great match for martial arts fans.
“We are not making assumptions. When you assume, you let yourself down,” Paris said when asked if they “assumed” Fury would win against Chisora tonight. “We know who will win.”
“I like that language right there,” says Sugarhill.
“Yes, a little English,” said Paris.
“Only two words, knock,” Sugarhill said of his prediction for Fury ahead of Chisora.
“I believe so. Tyson has fought Derek before and I don’t think Derek has anything new to bring to the table. I think Tyson will do everything he’s done before,” Paris said.
