Usyk Urges Fury To Fight Him, Fans Turn Up In Droves To Meet Usyk Ahead Of Dubois Fight

Oleksandr Usyk has urged Tyson Fury to face him in the ring to give the fans the undisputed heavyweight championship fight. 

The Ukrainian is currently readying himself to face Daniel Dubois on August 26th, 2023, as he defends his WBA, WBO and IBF titles against the Brit.

The fight emerged after talks with Fury over a fight at Wembley in April broke down, as Usyk faced his mandatory challenger instead.

But since the boxing community has not had an undisputed champion since 1999 when Lennox Lewis beat Evander Holyfield, Usyk is desperate to give the fans something to talk about. 

“Fury is beautiful and funny. I don’t think about him at all, I just need to meet him in the ring. I need him, the WBC belt is just additional motivation but me and him just need to fight. Fans and people will talk about our fight for 20, 30, 40 years. We need to fight,” Usyk

Ultimately, Usyk is entering into the latter parts of his career, given that he is 36. And with Fury not getting any younger, time is of the essence if the fight does happen.

After all, the reaction from the fan base has shown that. After Usyk conducted his public workout for the Dubois fight, he was overwhelmed by the fans.

One fan, in particular, had offered their passport to be signed. And Usyk obliged as he penned his signature, while having a massive smile on his face.

Usyk will ultimately be fighting in a pro-Ukrainian crowd in Poland, and by the looks of it, the supporters will be out in droves to back him.
