Anthony Joshua's Reaction To Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk's Collapse
by SEAD DEDOVIC | VIEW 305
There has been confirmation from the promoters Frank Warren and Alexander Krassyuk that the fight between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury will not take place as planned. There seem to be a lot of people who are surprised about this, but it seems that Fury had the final say in the whole story and that there were plenty of reasons for him not to accept the fight.
This situation has drawn the attention of Anthony Joshua, who has reacted to it. Joshua has confirmed that he was in the same situation just a short time ago. ‘I’ll be real with you. That Fury situation, as much as I love to entertain that gossip, I have been there twice,’ Joshua said, as quoted by metro.co.uk 'People don’t remember that.
I was suppose to fight him before I fought Usyk the first time and he pulled out due to his legal battle with (Deontay) Wilder, the arbitration. That was all up in the air, all done online. Then we had the one for this December.
Yeah, look that fight, will it get made? I don’t know. Look at the s**t that they are going through now with this Usyk stuff. It is just crazy.'
Anthony Joshua reacted
However, Joshua is happy that boxing fans and others can see what is happening behind the 'curtain'
The process of arranging a match is not an easy one, but Fury seems to have had too many demands this time around. ‘Well, it is actually good that people are starting to see – for someone that don’t publicise everything – what actually goes on in negotiations.
It is good that people can actually see the s**t that people have got to put up with just to make a fight. Me and Usyk had two successful fights done you know, so it is just crazy.’
