Oleksandr Usyk impressed many fans worldwide with the way he dominated in the 9th round against Tyson Fury. He almost dropped Fury to the canvas. In spite of getting outplayed in most of the rounds, Tyson Fury felt the judges were biased and declared Usyk the winner because Usyk’s country, Ukraine, was going through war.

During the post-fight interview, Tyson Fury refused to believe that he lost the fight.

“I believe I won that fight,” Fury said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. "I believe he won a few of the rounds but I believe I won the majority of them. We both put on a good fight, the best we could do. His country’s at war so people are siding with the country at war.

Make no mistake, I won that fight, in my opinion. I’ll be back. I’ve got a rematch clause”.
