Alex Krassyuk weighs in on the Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk rematch clause debate. The highly anticipated fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk is facing uncertainty as the Ukrainian boxer’s promoter, Alexander Krassyuk, accuses Fury of being afraid to fight. Krassyuk claims that Fury is looking for ways to pull out of the fight and is not prepared to face Usyk. Despite Oleksandr accepting a 70/30 split in the purse, Krassyuk believes Fury will still find excuses to avoid the fight.
Krassyuk’s claims come amidst speculation about the rematch clause in the contract. In a recent video posted to his Instagram, Fury stated that he had just found out about the rematch clause and proposed that both fighters waive it to “up the ante completely”. However, Krassyuk does not trust Fury and believes that the Brit is trying to avoid the fight altogether. He says that Fury’s credibility is “shot to pieces” and that it is a shame for a fighter of his stature to behave in such a way.
Alex Krassyuk Debunks The Fury vs Usyk Rematch Clause
In his conversation on TalkSport Live, Krassyuk stated that when negotiations began for the fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk, it was in fact Fury’s team who brought up and requested a rematch clause be included.
Krassyuk also claims that Usyk is ready for the fight and has been training since December. However, he believes that Fury is not prepared and is scared to face Oleksandr. Despite Usyk accepting a no-rematch clause, Krassyuk believes that Fury will continue to find excuses to avoid the fight. He says that Fury’s behavior is disappointing for his fans in the UK and around the world.
The uncertainty surrounding the Fury vs Usyk fight has left boxing fans disappointed. The fight was scheduled for April 29 and was highly anticipated as it was supposed to determine the undisputed heavyweight champion. However, with Krassyuk’s accusations and Fury’s recent proposal to waive the rematch clause, the future of the fight remains uncertain.
Boxing fans will have to wait and see whether the two fighters will step into the ring on April 29 or if the fight will be delayed or canceled altogether.
