The long-awaited heavyweight clash between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Uysk got off to a haphazard start. Their fight was initially meant to take place on 17th February but the mega event got cancelled after Tyson Fury was forced to withdraw because of a deep eye cut.

The new date is May 18; the chances for either one to pull out are very slim because they will now be liable to pay a hefty fine of $10 million dollars.

Tyson Fury would call himself ‘useless’ if he does not claim a win against Oleksandr Usyk.

“When the cruiserweights step up to the big boys, usually they get found wanting,” Fury said, as quoted by boxingjunkie.usatoday.com. “You can beat the average big ones but you can’t beat the elite big ones, because size really matters.

We have weight divisions for a reason, and he’s going to be found wanting when he fights me on May 18. This is my time, my destiny, my era and my generation. Fact”.

“I’m in fantastic shape, I’m having a fantastic training camp, and have got a good team around me.

Everything is going to plan. I’m working very hard. I’ve got my dad (John Fury) in camp this time, so I’ve got my secret weapon. We’ve got a full circus camp, so can’t do any more, really. I said if I can’t beat old Wlad, I must be useless, and I’ll say it again: If I can’t beat Usyk, I’m no good, clearly,That’s your headline.

If Tyson Fury can’t beat Usyk, Tyson’s no good, end of. But if I beat him, I beat another man, great, fantastic. On to the next one”.
