Usyk Lost To Dubois – Says Fury

Tyson Fury has given his take on Oleksandr Usyk’s controversial win over Daniel Dubois

The unified heavyweight champion dropped Dubois in round eight before stopping his mandatory in the next round. But before the actual stoppage, Usyk did hit the canvas in round five following a body shot by Dubois. However, the referee deemed it a low blow, as Usyk survived a scare to keep his undisputed ambitions alive.

In the aftermath of the fight, the boxing community was split over the legality of the punch. And since then, Dubois has appealed to the WBA in order to get the decision overturned and have an immediate rematch. But in the meantime, Fury has made his position clear.

“I thought [Usyk] lost [to Dubois] and he quit so he’s a little, quitting [coward]. And once you quit once you’ll always quit, just like we saw with Dubois. He quit too, so that was two quitters fighting each other. It’s tough to say somebody’s quit but Usyk quit with a body shot and rattled around the floor like a little [coward] for five minutes and the other one quit with a jab. But the truth is the truth and that’s it. I thought [Usyk] was a warrior, I thought he was a true little fighting man. But he’s clearly not, he’s just a little wussy,” Fury

Nevertheless, those comments have to be taken with a pinch of salt. The Gypsy King has the same promoter as Dubois Frank Warren. Meanwhile, those comments would also draw attention away from claims that Fury is ducking Usyk. And ultimately, the final decision will be with the WBA.
