Oleksandr Usyk will certainly not give up the fight with Tyson Fury. He has stated many times that his main goal is to find himself in the ring with 'Gyspy King' The Ukrainian emphasized in a recent interview that such a fight would be one of the biggest.
It would be talked about for years ahead of us. However, there is still no agreement nor does it appear that it will be reached. “Fury is beautiful and funny. I don’t think about him at all, I just need to meet him in the ring.
I need him, the WBC belt is just additional motivation but me and him just need to fight. Fans and people will talk about our fight for 20, 30, 40 years. We need to fight”. - Usyk said, as quoted by boxingscene.com
Oleksandr Usyk and the war
Due to the war in Ukraine, Usyk will not have the opportunity to fight in his country.
The fight destination will be Wroclaw, Poland. It is a place where a large number of Ukrainians live. Usyk wants to make his nation happy, considering that they are currently going through the most difficult time in their history.
“That city has a large Ukrainian community and it has a boxing history. Vitali Klitschko boxed Tomasz Adamek there and there are a lot of boxing fans there. There are also a lot of MMA fighters from there. I pray every day for the lord to give me more understanding of what is going on in Ukraine.
I don’t want to be angry at people, I want to love this world as it is. If I can bring my people just a little bit of enjoyment, I would fight everyday. Because of where they are, they don’t have anything else to do, or look at, other than fighting for freedom. But we are going to get that freedom”.
