Oleksandr Usyk‘s promoter Alex Krassyuk has hit out at Tyson Fury after their undisputed world heavyweight title fight was delayed.

Usyk and Fury had agreed terms to fight on December 23 in Riyadh, with the Gypsy King claiming he would sue the Ukrainian if their bout was held up further. 

However, after his close contest with Francis Ngannou, which Fury won via split decision, his promoter Frank Warren confirmed the clash with Usyk would instead take place early next year.

And Krassyuk, speaking to Mail Sport’s new boxing podcast, The Hook, hit out at Fury’s behaviour which has delayed his showdown with Usyk.

‘In terms of that fight with Tyson Fury,’ he said. ‘Listen, we friendly with hearts full of love called Tyson Fury a random-thought generator.

‘So that was one of his random thoughts before the fight and probably the other one after the fight. You cannot match it.’

Krassyuk also went on to hit out at Fury’s underwhelming performance against Ngannou – when many felt the former MMA star deserved to win – while he also insisted Usyk will show no fear when they eventually do take each other on.

He added: ‘Can you imagine (if he lost the fight)? Usyk (was ringside) and was sweating throughout the fight because there was a chance for Tyson to lose.

‘If he lost, who would watch this fight (Fury-Usyk)? This fight (with Ngannou) didn’t seem to be a big success in the US. A couple of hours ago, I saw the reports from the pay-per-views in the US. 

‘So this was the fight that did not bring that much attention. But I think it’s going to be completely different when he fights Usyk.

‘Usyk has always been confident in what he does. Otherwise, there is no space for him in boxing. 

‘I mean, he became the undisputed cruiserweight and he went to run for the undisputed heavyweight race. 

‘And well, that’s where he is now and he has just one belt left.’
