Fury Unfazed By Missing Out On Undisputed

Tyson Fury is unfazed by missing out on becoming the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion after Oleksandr Usyk vacated his IBF belt.

Usyk won the first fight to become the undisputed champion. After the win, Usyk was required to defend against his IBF mandatory Daniel Dubois. The Ukrainian applied for an exemption with the IBF to keep the belts for the December 21 rematch. That did not go through, as Usyk vacated, allowing Anthony Joshua to face Dubois on September 21 for the belt. Fury’s manager, Spencer Brown, downplayed the disappointment.

“We done the fight. The next fight will be for the unified title. Tyson just wants the fight. He doesn’t care if it’s for no belts. He wants to right the wrongs. He’s not bothered about belts. I think Tyson Fury wins the fight,” Brown said

Fury can still become undisputed with a win over Usyk. Frank Warren said the winner would face the winner between Joshua and Dubois. That makes it a bigger undisputed fight than against Usyk since it is a huge British domestic clash. But even if Fury and Joshua lose, the two fighters have agreed to face each other next after agreeing on a FaceTime call. Warren was ready for the next undisputed fight.

“All roads will lead to unification again. He’s [Usyk] getting a massive payday for the rematch that he was contracted for against Tyson [Fury]. That’s what the position is. It’s pure business as far as he’s concerned. If it were about holding onto the belts, he wouldn’t have relinquished (the IBF title). He’s in it for the money, and obviously, the rematch is a massive fight everyone wants to see. Whatever happens, the winner of this fight on September 21, which will be Daniel, will fight the winner of that fight, and the four belts will be back on the line again. Whatever Happens,” Warren stated
