Tyson Fury Vs Oleksandr Usyk Isn’t Happening Yet, Step-Aside Deals Rejected

Dillian Whyte and Anthony Joshua aren’t accepting any step-aside money.

Heavyweight battles Tyson Fury vs Whyte and Oleksandr Usyk vs Joshua II seems to still be on the cards after Whyte and Joshua rejected step-aside deals, talkSPORT reported Thursday.

Fury-Whyte were supposed to go to purse bids Wednesday afternoon, but it was pushed back – for the fourth time – to Friday, January 28 since Whyte and Joshua were offered £5 million and £15 million, respectively, to let Fury-Usyk happen.

But they didn’t take the bait. Both boxers are promoted by Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing.

Fury-Whyte was originally targeted for March, but with repeated delays, Hearn said that date is looking impossible.

Meanwhile, Usyk-Joshua is expected to have their contracted rematch in the spring.

Joshua was reportedly guaranteed a shot at the winner of Fury vs Usyk, who would have an undisputed winner by then.

Fury confirmed the WBC heavyweight title fight against Whyte was happening Thursday morning.

But hours before that friendly confirmation, Fury called Joshua and Hearn the “worst businessmen in history.”

“Had to do this video,” Fury said. “Eddie Hearn and Anthony Joshua have gotta be the worstest-damn businessmen in history. Today they lost $90 million! God-damn son of a b—s! Crazy-a–!”

He also mocked Joshua, Whyte and Usyk in another clip posted on social media.

“Had to do this video,” Fury said. “Eddie Hearn and Anthony Joshua have gotta be the worstest-damn businessmen in history. Today they lost $90 million! God-damn son of a b—s! Crazy-a–!”

The $90 million figure is unclear, but Yahoo! News concluded it might be from an offer for his and Usyk’s rumored fight in the Middle East.

Usyk’s manager, Egis Klimas, spat back at Fury for his remarks.

“Yo man before next time you will mention @usykaa name check with your team, management, advisers, promoters who agreed with all terms and conditions looks like you are the one who is holding this wagon yelling and talking is cheap @Tyson_Fury.”
