Frank Warren slams Oleksandr Usyk’s teammate for splashing water on him during Tyson Fury interview

Eagle-eyed boxing fans caught Frank Warren a little angry after Tyson Fury’s loss to Oleksandr Usyk.

The Hall of Fame promoter was understandably upset to see Fury suffer a split decision loss in his undisputed WBC, WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight title fight.

However, it was something else that pissed him off after the fight.

As Fury was giving an interview in the ring, a member of Usyk’s team attempted to calm the Ukrainian down by spitting water directly in his face.

The water bounced off Usyk and flowed toward Warren, who contested after being hit by splashing water for the second time in a row.

Warren first tells the man to stop what he’s doing before pointing and raising his voice when Usyk’s buddy does it again.

It appears he received the message after being scolded by the 72-year-old.

While Warren bickered with Team Usyk, Fury explained why he thought he won the fight and suggested he would trigger the rematch clause in his contract.

The Queensberry boxing boss agreed with his fighter’s assessment that the split decision should have gone the other way.

“I agree with the judge who gave it to (Fury),” Warren told The Stomping Ground.

“I thought he could have won it by one of two rounds, but the score is subjective and we’re not going to cry about it.

“The result is what it is. It was a magnificent fight. It was everything the biggest or greatest fight of this century should be.

Warren refused to be sold on talk of a possible rematch, but said he would fully support Fury whatever he decides to do next.

He added when asked if Fury wanted the rematch: “It’s up to him.”

“Like I said, he’s been in training camp since December. Six months solid. How many fighters do that? This is what he has been doing since the postponement.

“He needs some time off. He needs to go spend time with his family and not talk about boxing. Forget boxing.

“I know Tyson very well and when he’s ready, he’ll call and say what he wants to do. Whatever he wants to do, I’ll support him wholeheartedly.”
