Tyson Fury tells Oleksandr Usyk to forget about rematch clause – before Ukrainian hits back at rival’s ‘stupid games’.
Tyson Fury challenged Oleksandr Usyk to forego any rematch clause ahead of their proposed blockbuster bout in April – before Usyk insisted the clause was coming from Fury’s side and that he does not want to play the Briton’s “stupid games”.
The World Boxing Association confirmed on Friday evening that an “agreement” had been reached for a fight between the undefeated pair, who hold the heavyweight division’s four titles between them.
WBC champion Fury addressed WBA, WBO and IBF champion Usyk in a video posted on Twitter, saying: “I’ve been speaking to the lawyers and Usyk’s people have been talking about rematch clauses.
Usyk responded by releasing a video of his own, in which he said: “Greedy Belly [Fury]. Very much, the clause comes from your side, not mine. Stop whining and ducking.
