Oleksandr Usyk Not Satisfied With Joe Joyce Contract Offer

Oleksandr Usyk says he is none too pleased with the offer he was made for a clash with Joe Joyce.

Usyk and Joyce are expected to collide at some point in 2021. The bout would likely be contested for the interim WBO Heavyweight Championship. Usyk has agreed to step aside for Anthony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury but he is starting to run out of patience.

Usyk hopped on his Twitter account and let it be known that he isn’t appreciative of the initial offer presented to him for the Joyce fight.

Joyce’s team made us an offer. The offer was unsuitable, so we made a more viable counter-offer. Joyce shouldn’t think too much of himself and fall in line with everyone else. I’ll be the one making the final decision.”

Frank Warren of Queensberry Promotions responded to Usyk and claims that a counteroffer was never presented.

“Hi Alex, we haven’t received any counter offer from you or your team. We made an offer to your manager again last week. Joe wants this fight. We want this fight. It sounds like you want this fight. Let’s get this made for the fans.”

Usyk last competed back in October. He defeated Derek Chisora in his second pro heavyweight fight via unanimous decision. With the victory, Usyk maintained his mandatory status.

As for Joyce, he’s coming off the biggest win of his career. Joyce scored a knockout victory over the previously unbeaten Daniel Dubois in the 10th round.
