‘I’m a monster’ – Tyson Fury is in BEST shape of his career despite having six weeks to train for Oleksandr Usyk fight


TYSON FURY has insisted he is in the BEST shape of his career – despite having just six weeks to train for his fight with Oleksandr Usyk.

Usyk accepted Fury’s “greedy” terms of a 70/30 split to unify all four heavyweight belts for the first time ever.

It leaves just over six weeks until the historic title unification, which is eyed for April 29 at Wembley.

But Fury has cooled concerns over his fitness and claimed he has never been better as he worked up a sweat in his personal gym.

He said: “I can’t wait, I’m in the best shape of my life. I’m ready to rock and roll, I wish it was this weekend. I’m a monster.”

Fury, 34, appears to still be without coach Sugarhill Steward or any known southpaw sparring partners.

And Usyk’s promoter Alex Krassyuk voiced fears over whether the fight will happen amid ongoing back and forths on social media.

Fury demanded there be NO rematch clause in the contract but Krassyuk argued it was his side who wanted the stipulation.

It led Hall of Famer Frank Warren to speak out and maintain that the fight is ON despite the public jabs.

Warren told talkSPORT: “Both boxers have agreed to a split and it’ll be on.

“It’s just a matter of contracts but they’re not going to be a problem. I know we’ll get this on.

“From Tyson’s perspective he’s just putting it out there and putting it on the table, asking why he [Usyk] wants a rematch.”

Krassyuk accused Fury of trying to “find a way to pull out” but Warren was quick to hit back.

He said: “If he was going to avoid the fight he’d just say, ‘I’m the WBC champion, you get on with your lives, I’ll get on with mine.’

“To say that Tyson would avoid any fight; this is the guy that went to Germany to fight Wladimir Klitschko, who at his time was the best heavyweight of his generation, had no problem going over there and actually won the fight.

“This is the guy that went off to the United States not once but three times to fight the hardest puncher in the heavyweight division.

“Please, the one thing about Tyson is that he’s got balls, he’s got balls bigger than… just massive balls. There’s no problem with him doing the fight.

“Secondly, he trains religiously every day… he’s as fit as a butcher’s dog. You’ve only got to look at him, see recent photos of him and you can see how fit he is. He’s ready to go.

“Where we are now from where we were on Friday, when everybody was writing this off and saying it’s not going to happen, is that both boxers have agreed the terms and respective camps and lawyers are now working on to get the agreement drafted so that we can officially announce it.
