Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk fight talks at an ‘impasse’ and Gypsy King is ‘very afraid’, says Ukrainian


TYSON FURY’s second round of negotiations with Oleksandr Usyk over an undisputed heavyweight title fight have ground to a halt.

The mouthwatering clash of undefeated heavyweights fell through in March after Team Usyk pulled the plug on their proposed Wembley war following Fury’s constant moving of the goalposts.

SunSport understands talks resumed earlier this month, although they have since reached another standstill.

Former undisputed cruiserweight king Usyk told Vringe: “[‘We’re] at an impasse.”

Saudi boxing chiefs are trying to secure the fight as part of a four-man December tournament involving Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.

And despite their first round of talks bearing no fruit, slick southpaw Usyk is confident he’ll eventually share the ring with the Gypsy King.

He said: “The fight will take place sooner or later. And everything will be decided in the ring.”

Usyk and his team withdrew from their first round of negotiations with Fury after he demanded there be no rematch clause for their historic bout – which came after they agreed to a 70-30 purse split in his favour.

And Usyk, 35, believes Fury’s constant chopping and changing with his demands were borne out of fear.

He said: “A big man who has very good abilities in boxing and in life, but this big man is very afraid of losing.”


Fury received plenty of flak after the fight fell through but is adamant he will dance with the undefeated Ukrainian later this year.

He said: “I don’t think anybody’s scared of anybody in a boxing match.

“The fight’s gotta happen, it’s gotta happen this year.

“I just think it’s an easy job.

“I’ll hit him, he’ll hit the floor, then I’ll go out and get drunk in the town centre.”
