While Tyson Fury had announced his retirement from boxing, the WBC and lineal heavyweight champion recently resorted to social media to brazenly declare his preparedness to fight Oleksandr Usyk. He has stated his desire to fight the current WBO, WBA, and IBF champion as soon as December of this year.
“Usyk, middleweight, you say you want the WBC (belt) ... it’s held by the ‘Gypsy King,’ and it’s held tightly, grasped tight. All roads lead to a seven-foot bear that will absolutely destroy you, middleweight. Middleweight, you will get smashed to bits!”
“You say you wanted to fight me after you beat the bodybuilder, called me out on television, and now you’re being a little bitch pussy boy, running, hiding, saying you’ve got injuries. You ain’t got no injuries, you had a sparring contest. Get out and fight in December. You let your mouth go, now let’s back it up. See if you can back it up, middleweight.”
“Doesn’t matter if it’s December or April or August of next year. The outcome will be the same, I will obliterate you. I am a seven-foot, 20-stone bear, and I will destroy you, middleweight. Find your balls, come see me, b**ch.
