John Fury believes Oleksandr Usyk manipulated the crowd against Tyson Fury

The discussions for the match between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk started in March, it was almost a done deal, and the match was supposed to take place in April. The negotiations were coming to a fruitful conclusion, but due to some serious indifferences in terms and agreements, the match was officially called off.

Oleksandr Usyk has moved on and is now going to fight against Daniel Dubois in August. On the flip side, Tyson Fury recently took the time to announce that he will be making a massive fight announcement soon, which clearly indicates that he has an opponent matched up for him and we will soon see 'The Gypsy King' appear in the boxing ring.

Recently in an interview with Seconds Out, Tyson Fury's father, John Fury, shared that Usyk was trying to manipulate the crowd against Tyson Fury. He then reveals that The Furys will not accept a fight with Usyk until and unless he sends a video stating the truth behind the negotiations.

"Until he gets on and makes a proper video explaining what he did and tells the truth," John Fury said, as quoted by "He may never get the fight with Tyson. It's gone past money now with Tyson, it's gone past everything with us.

They are taking the p**s. He's a nobody, Usyk. Yes, he's won a few belts off AJ. But you've seen how AJ has been performing. AJ has not performed for a while now. Fury further said: "Tyson will iron him out and everybody in the game knows it.

He's trying to do is kill two birds with one stone. Turn the public against Tyson, which they've done a good job of because the public is daft anyway. The bottom line is they never wanted the fight. Anthony Joshua never wanted the fight, Usyk never wanted the fight.

Unless he gets on the video and tells the truth of what he did, there'll never be a fight for Usyk, never be. We'll just move on".
