The two men have been in the Middle East this week as the hype to crown a first unified king champ of the division intensifies.

But it was the WBC champion’s father who stole the headlines after he HEADBUTTED Stanislav Stepchuk – a member of the Usyk team – on Monday.

John, who was left with a bloodied forehead, was then screaming in the resulting melee: “We can’t be beat! We can’t be beat!”

The 59-year-old then threatened to headbutt Tony Bellew after he predicted a Usyk win and has now caused controversy again with a bizarre rant.

Speaking to IFL TV, he has now launched a bitter attack on “traitor” British fans who believe that his undefeated 6ft 9in boy will be beaten this weekend and says that his family’s “heart is in Saudi Arabia”.

John, who was a pro boxer himself,  blasted: “The Brits do that. The Brits are traitors aren’t they?

“Forget Great Britain, our heart is in Saudi Arabia because we get treated like proper people and how we deserve to be treated.

“I feel like a king myself and I am a bum.”


John had earlier broken his silence over the headbutting incident and tried to justify it by insisting: “I’m a warrior, that’s what we do.”

He said: “[They] disrespected my son, the best heavyweight to ever wear a pair of boxing gloves.

“Coming out with all that rubbish. He’s in my face, trying to be clever.

“Coming into my space, ‘Usyk, Usyk’, nobody’s bothering with them. I was only chanting my own son’s name.

“They stepped closer, stepped closer. So I’m a warrior at the end of the day, that’s what we do.

“We’re fighting people, you come in the space, you’re gonna get what’s coming.”


That then led to Usyk warning Fury and John that his secret army of gun-and-knife trained soldiers will not stand for another assault.

However, Tyson looked completely unconcerned by that threat last night.

The Gypsy King rocked up to the Grand Arrivals event with a “new style” that left fans claiming that he looked like a cross between Boy George and WWE legend The Undertaker.
