Promoter Frank Warren decided to defend Tyson Fury after the fight between him and Usyk collapsed. Despite many hoping that this fight would see the light of day and that we would see a spectacle, Fury's demands for the Ukrainian were simply too great.
Frank Warren believes that the match against Fury brings huge money to the boxers and that it is quite reasonable why Fury has certain requirements that he adheres to. “Tyson’s fights in the States and the UK drew more than three million subscribers, punters, pay per view buys.
His fight with Dillian Whyte was the highest grossing pay per view in the UK to take place in the UK. It beat Usyk vs Joshua, that’s a fact of life. Tyson brings a lot of value and people make money from fighting Tyson.
It’s like when people go and fight Canelo – they don’t even get 80/20, nowhere near it!”- Warrens said for IFL TV, as quoted by boxing-social.com
Deontay Wilder reacted
Deontay Wilder also reacted to the whole situation.
He is not surprised by such things, considering that this could be expected. Previous experiences, but also what he saw, are the reason why Wilder is not surprised at all. “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.
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”.
