Fury: I’d Have Punched Usyk Round The Ring

Tyson Fury says he would have punched Oleksandr Usyk ‘round the ring’ if they had ever fought.

The now retired WBC champion spoke to talkSPORT 24 hours after reconfirming his departure from the sport in an interview with Piers Morgan.

If Fury sticks to his word, then an undisputed fight between himself and the winner of Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua will never take place. However, the unbeaten 33-year-old had his say on what would have happened had he faced the Ukrainian.

“It’s never gonna happen because I’m retired,” Fury told talkSPORT. “But let’s just say I’d punch him round the ring, because he’s a middleweight, blown up.

“I’ve already been the undisputed champion; I’ve won every single belt there is to win. I’ve got nothing more to do, I am out, fully retired. Done.”

Fury’s last fight came with a knockout performance against Dillian Whyte on Saturday at Wembley Stadium. The mandatory challenger was dropped by an uppercut in the sixth round with referee Mark Lyson ending matters seconds after.
