Representatives of both athletes are still trying to agree on the long-awaited fight on April 29. Now the two boxers have exchanged comments in the public space about an important condition of the contract.
Foreign media reports that Usyk has even agreed to a 30:70 income split in favor of Fury. Now the two boxers are in conflict over the inclusion of a rematch clause in the contract. Fury insists that the loser of the fight should not get a chance for revenge.
“I talked to the lawyers today. Usik’s representatives are talking about a rematch point and similar nonsense. What if [līgumā] no rematch provisions would be incorporated. Both of us. Let’s raise the stakes. Never worry about what will happen in the future. Don’t worry about how many dollars you will get after losing. Worried about the fight on April 29.
The winner gets all the glory, the loser goes home with a penis in hand. What say? Agree, you damn cunt,” said Fury.
Usik, however, did not owe an answer, stating that it is Fury’s representatives who are advocating for the inclusion of a rematch clause in the contract.
“Hey you greedy cunt, the revenge point was your reps setup, not mine. Stop whining and dodge [no cīņas]. Be the man, sign the contract or vacate the championship belt. I want to be the absolute champion and I don’t want to play your stupid games,” replied the Ukrainian boxer.
The 34-year-old Fury has fought 34 times in professional boxing. He has 33 wins, 24 of them by knockout, and one draw. He has defended the WBC championship belt won against US boxer Deontay Wilder three times in February 2020.
On the other hand, the 36-year-old Usik has participated in 20 fights in the professional boxing ring and won all of them, ending 13 duels prematurely. Usyk was the absolute champion in the weight category up to 90.2 kilograms, but in September 2021 he took all four belts from Briton Anthony Joshua in super heavyweight. In August of last year, Joshua tried to get revenge, but was defeated once again.
