Fury vs Usyk Face Off LEAKED
Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk sat down for a face-off with TNT’s Steve Bunce.
Although it has not been officially confirmed yet, TNT Sports Box Office is expected to broadcast Fury-Usyk in the United Kingdom and the Republic Of Ireland.
The face-off starts with Bunce asking Fury if he always thought that the fight would happen.
Fury replies “I didn’t think it wouldn’t happen, it’s been signed for months. It’s just a matter of when and where.”
Usyk answered, “I believe this fight will be.”
Fury “For me, he was never in the equation. It was always me, Wilder and Joshua and then obviously he beat Joshua.”
Usyk is not fluent in English and had a translator for the majority of the face-off.
Fury “I think we both are decent men. We’re both family men, we’ve both got children, we’re both God-fearing men. I don’t think you can be any more decent”
“Me and him’s got to go fight now. We’re going to see who’s better between me and Oleksandr. I’m a conqueror, he’s Alexander but I am the great”
The unified champion was asked about the war of words between the pair.
“I think as long as there is a good balance then it’s fine that we raise our level of confrontation. But when it starts becoming too rude, touching on personal things, I don’t think it’s the right thing to do because our children watch us.”
“Actually nothing really insults me. Nothing that Fury has said – nothing at all”
The pair carried on for more than ten minutes in their fourteen-minute face-off video.
