Former WBC champion, Deontay Wilder reacted to the news that the fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk collapsed. Although many expected and hoped that two great boxers would meet in the ring, an agreement could not be reached.
Wilder emphasized that during the agreement for the match, many things can be a barrier to holding the match. “I mean this is the business of boxing, it’s a very difficult business. For me the business of boxing is one of the most difficult businesses to be in because it has no structure, so it can go any way.
It has so many loopholes, so many tunnels, so many avenues it can travel, so it’s not a surprise to me that it fell apart like that. "- Wilder said, as quoted by boxing-social.com Wilder is not surprised by the whole situation, considering that he has seen the same things before.
"Just like many other fights before, so we can’t be surprised at this because we’ve seen so many of the best fights that we think would have happened but didn’t happen and fall apart. So for me a fight isn’t final until you get in the ring and the bell goes ding”.
- he concluded.
Joe Joyce reacted
Another famous boxer, Joe Joyce, reacted to such news. Although many believe that Joyce should be happy, given that this opens the way for him to fight with Fury, things are totally different.
Joyce hopes that the match will still take place. "I'm hoping that it's going to happen. It's the undisputed [heavyweight title fight]. When was the last undisputed? They need to have that fight. It needs to happen. Then you can open up some more fights," he told Sky Sports.
"Can you just get the fight made please guys? I thought it was on. What's the reason this time?"
