Talks between Usyk and Fury, also known as the Gypsy King, broke down this week to leave fans feeling flat.
The duo both reign supreme in the heavyweight division.
And a bout would have seen one man become top dog of the land.
Usyk’s camp have blamed the collapse of talks on Fury’s various demands.
But his sibling Tommy has hinted Fury is not to blame for the fight going under.
And he also reckons it will be just a matter of time before Fury vs Usyk becomes a reality.
Tommy told Soccer AM: ‘He (Tyson) does not like Uysk at the minute. Listen, there’s a lot of politics involved in boxing, but I want to say this first-hand.
‘The reason why this fight isn’t getting made isn’t down to Tyson at all. He wants to fight and he’s proved to everybody… he’s gone and fought Deontay Wilder after three years out.’

He continued: ‘He’ll fight any man. He doesn’t fear any man, especially not a cruiserweight who can’t do anything anyway.
‘You know he’s too small. What’s he going to do? It’s not Tyson’s fault. I think all of these fights will happen, but it just takes a while to get made.”
In the meantime, question marks remain over Fury’s next steps.
Joe Joyce admits he is desperate to step in after his April 15 clash against Zhilei Zhang.
And Anthony Joshua conqueror Andy Ruiz Jr has also thrown his hat in the ring as he continues his comeback.
Promoter Frank Warren has even hinted Fury could now retire for good due to a lack of opponents.
