Tyson Fury claims Oleksandr Usyk clash is 'definitely' on for April 29
Tyson Fury claims his undisputed heavyweight clash with Oleksandr Usyk is ‘DEFINITELY’ on for April 29 at Wembley as the Gypsy King announces social media blackout throughout his training camp starting tomorrow
- Fury and Usyk have gone back and forth on social media over the past week
- Usyk’s promoter Alex Krassyuk cast doubt over the mega-fight going ahead
- But Fury has claimed the undisputed battle is ‘definitely a worker’ for April 29
Tyson Fury has claimed his undisputed heavyweight showdown with Oleksandr Usyk is ‘definitely’ going ahead on April 29 at Wembley despite the Ukrainian’s promoter casting doubt over the fight this week.
Fury has gone back and forth with Usyk on social media over the past week as they look to finalise their potential mega-fight, which will crown the first undisputed king of the division in over two decades.
Despite holding three of the four recognised heavyweight titles, Usyk was offered a questionable financial split of 30 per cent by Fury last week, but he quickly accepted those terms on the condition that his rival donates £1million to his native Ukraine.
The Gypsy King responded on Monday by calling for the rematch clause included in their fight contract to be removed, which left Usyk’s promoter Alex Krassyuk furious.
Krassyuk accused Fury of moving the goalposts because he is ‘scared’ of his man, while expressing fears that their undisputed battle will not happen.
Yet in a video message on Tuesday night, Fury revealed his training camp officially begins on Wednesday as the April 29 date at Wembley is ‘definitely a worker’.
He said in the message: ‘Hi guys, as fun as it’s been over the last few days terrorising Usyk and his team, tomorrow I’m gonna knuckle down into training camp and I’ll be doing a blackout as I always do on social media.
‘Nav will be running my Instagram account, keeping it all updated on my training progress and how it’s all going.
‘April 29 is definitely a worker, I will see you all on the night. Tune in, or be there or be square. This is the biggest fight in British boxing history, the fight of the century. Two undefeated world heavyweight champions throwing down to see who is the No 1 in the division – the undisputed heavyweight championship on the line.
‘Peace out, good training to Usyk… let the best man win.’
