Usyk’s Promoter Desperate To Make The Fury Fight, Usyk Plans For Life After Boxing

Oleksandr Usyk’s promoter, Alexander Krassyuk, is desperate to put on the undisputed heavyweight fight with Tyson Fury

Talks over a fight in April broke down, despite the Ukrainian agreeing to a 70-30 split publicly.

That was a massive move since Usyk was bringing in three belts, and yet, he was willing to take the short end of the stick.

But the terms of the rematch could not be agreed as the negotiations ended.

And given that boxing fans have not had an undisputed champion since Lennox Lewis in 1999, Krassyuk was desperate to make the fight happen. 

“It’s our obligation to deliver this fight. The whole world wants to see this fight. Not just ourselves or people involved in boxing, but the whole world.

“People who know nothing about boxing would love to see the heavyweight undisputed fight for the four belts for the first time in the four-belt era.

“I can promise you and promise all the fans around the world that I will do everything that can depend on me to make this fight happen,” Krassyuk

Nevertheless, before that can happen, Fury and Usyk must overcome their next opponents. The Ukrainian faces Daniel Dubois on August 26th, 2023, as he puts his unified titles on the line.

Meanwhile, Fury takes on Francis Ngannou on October 28th, 2023, in a crossover event as the latter makes his boxing debut. But provided the two win, then the talk will turn to making the fight. 

But at the age of 36, Usyk is entering into the latter parts of his boxing career. However, the Ukrainian already has his eyes ahead on his future post-boxing. 

“No, it is [my career] not the final point. I am 36, but this is just the beginning. I started boxing at the age of 15. It’s just the beginning now.

“I do realize there are not many years left for me in boxing and I don’t want to spend much time in boxing. I want to take my kids to school and whatever,” Usyk
