Oleksandr Usyk Seeking Undisputed Heavyweight Title Fight Vs. Tyson Fury

Oleksandr Usyk wants only one fight now.

Usyk defeated Anthony Joshua a second time on Saturday – this time by split decision – to retain his WBA, WBO and IBF titles. Now the only person left on the Ukrainian boxer’s list is WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

“That is what I am dreaming of every day,” Usyk said.

“I am going to beat his a–.”

“… Some big things were at stake. And thank God the belts are coming back to Ukraine, victory is for us and Ukraine won.”

Fury, who has announced his retirement repeatedly, reacted to Usyk’s win with a video posted on social media.

In the clip, Fury says that he would “annihilate” Usyk and to get his check book out.

Fury’s co-promoter, Frank Warren, told BBC Radio 5 Live that an undisputed championship between Fury and Usyk would be a “really good” fight.

“It’s a fight that I think will be made because both teams would like to see that happen,” Warren added.

The last undisputed heavyweight championship took place between Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis in 1999. Lewis had defeated Holyfield, and is the last undisputed champion that the division has had.

Usyk extended his streak to 20 straight wins on Saturday and said:

“If I’m not fighting Tyson Fury, I’m not fighting at all.”

Joshua has now fallen to 24-3 with 22 knockouts.

Elsewhere in the division, Deontay Wilder makes his return — since losing to Fury last October – against Robert Helenius on October 15. Critics have suggested that, if Wilder wins, Joshua-Wilder could be the next big pay-per-view to book.
