Boxing journalist from Los Angeles Steve Kim shared an insider about the disruption of the fight for the absolute heavyweight championship between Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk and Briton Tyson Fury.
“Just talked to Aegis Klimas, he says that Usyk’s team is waiving the fight with Fury on April 29th and will now fulfill their mandatory obligations. “No matter how much Usyk compromised, he was pushed for more.” They hope to bring it back in June/July,” Kim tweeted.
Recall Usyk is the WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO champion, and Fury holds the WBC title. Boxers need to agree on a unification bout before April 1st.
Earlier, British journalist Gareth Davies expressed the opinion that Usyk-Fury fight will be announced in the near future.
