Usyk has not signed the contract for the fight, while Fury’s recent post boasting about receiving 70% of the split may have jeopardized his chances of the fight.
Fury’s actions may have been an attempt to dissuade Usyk’s team from pursuing the fight by taunting his manager Krassyuk.
Whatever the case may be, Fury gloated over the deal via social media.
‼️ Tyson Fury blasts Oleksandr Usyk's promoter Alex Krassyuk: “You got outwitted by a man who never went to school in his life.”

“Usyk’s manager [Alex Krassyuk], you sausage. Borak wants his voice back, you f***king bum. You’ll get what your getting, don’t worry. You’re the worst manager in history. You got your fighter to accept 30%, you bum dosser.
“Ha-ha-ha-ha, you’re not clever, are you? You bum! You got outwitted by a man that never went to school in his life. Sausage, keep talking; your boy is going to get smashed. He’s going to be belt-less, just like your other boy AJ. Come on.”
Concerns were also raised about the readiness of the British boxer to fight Usyk on the scheduled date, as his training camp only commenced last weekend.
Despite initial concerns, Fury addressed the issue in a public message on social media, reassuring everyone: “I can’t wait. I’m in the best shape of my life. I’m ready to rock and roll. I wish it was this weekend. I’m a monster,” said Fury.
And yet, the social media reaction suggested the public was getting tired of Fury’s antics.
