Tyson Fury's surgery may delay undisputed bout vs Oleksandr Usyk

The 'King of the Gypsies' successfully returned to the ring last night and after 10 rounds of dominance defeated his compatriot Derek Chisora. Although Chisora also had his moments, constantly moving forward and applying pressure, Tyson was the one who controlled the fight, countered precisely and hit more cleanly.

Everything indicated that the fight for the unification of all heavyweight belts would finally take place, so that we would finally get the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world after two decades. Fury even called out Usyk after the fight and confronted him, calling him names and insulting him, thereby heating up the atmosphere for a potential match, but it seems that this is still far from being realized.

This time the reason is neither money, nor an agreement between the promoters, but Fury's injury. Fury spoke more about it after the fight to ESPN: “I’ve got some hand problems and I’ve gotta maybe have some surgery on me elbow.

But after that, I’m ready for anybody,” Fury told ESPN’s Mark Kriegel in the post-fight interview. “I sort of f–ed my hands up tonight on Derek’s big head. He’s solid as a brick”.

It looks like Fury suffered an elbow injury during the fight with Chisora. Despite having to undergo surgery, Fury claims that he could be ready as early as March or April (months 3 and 4). “We’ll see when we can be ready for this fight, we’ll see when it can be made,” said Fury.

Fury says a matchup with Joyce could be next

“I’m the only one who calls your name out. Everybody else is scared of you. If this little rabbit don’t want it and it can’t be made, lets you and me my brother do Wembley,” said Fury.

“I think Joe Joyce is the tougher man; Usyk’s got better boxing skills. Joe is a big monster of a man, a strong, big juggernaut, and Usyk is a master boxer,” said Fury. This news could be good for our Filip Hrgovic, because if it turns out that Fury will be out of the ring for a long time, there is a great possibility that Usyk will decide to stay active and accept the fight against our Filip in the meantime.
