John Fury reaction to the recent incident

Recently on IFL TV, John Fury explained why the incident took place with Usyk’s team member.

“It’s the fight game,” Fury said, as quoted by “Emotions are running high. At the end of the day, I was sat there, minding my own business, and all I could hear was, ‘Usyk! Usyk!

Usyk!’. And I’m going to stand up for my son. At the end of the day, he’s my son, he’s the best in the world, and I want people to respect him and give him the credit he deserves as the champion. He’s the best in the world.

People are in positions. Tyson and Usyk can say what they want to each other, They’re the ones that are going to fight. But I don’t think anybody else has got the authority to call anybody else [anything]. Because if one of my team was to insult Usyk, they’d be sacked, because they haven’t got the authority to do that.

So at the end of the day, leave the fighting men to fight".
