‘Don’t bet against the Ukrainian’


Despite being Tyson Fury’s promoter, Bob Arum is wary of the threat Oleksandr Usyk poses if the duo fight.

After beating Derek Chisora ​​by tenth-round stoppage on Saturday, Fury’s attention immediately turned to an undisputed potential matchup with Usyk next year.

Usyk joined Fury in the ring after his latest win and ‘The Gypsy King’ didn’t hold back, shouting in his face, “Usyk you’re the next little b****.

“You are next. Me and you then. You are next. Rabbit! Whore ! 15th small dwarf bodybuilder. Well, I’m not a bodybuilder, I’ll write you off.

“I have already made a Ukrainian in [Wladimir] Klitschko, right? And I’ll do you too, gaping teeth.

“You ugly little man. Let’s go on b****. You may laugh now, but I’m going to end this little sucker. I will finish you. Little asshole. What are you going to do? You’re gonna screw it up, little sausage.

While Usyk has impressed since moving from heavyweight to cruiserweight becoming unified world champion, Fury is still widely regarded as the number one heavyweight in the world and he would be a heavy favorite should the pair fight.

That being said, Fury’s promoter Arum feels it wouldn’t be wise to overlook Usyk’s chances, referring to the bravery the Ukrainians have shown in their ongoing war with Russia.

“He’s a Ukrainian. Ukrainians are fighting like no one else in the world,” Arum told iD Boxing.

“People didn’t give them a chance against Russia, such a bigger country, and they’re blowing Russia up.

“Don’t bet against the Ukrainian.

“I think Tyson wins this fight, but Usyk is going to give him everything he’s got.”
