Tyson Fury has branded Oleksandr Usyk’s promoter ‘the worst in history’ after seeing their side accept a deal for 70/30 in his favour.
The negotiations for the undisputed heavyweight clash between the two champions continue to swing from on to off, with a deadline of this week for final signing set by Usyk’s team.
They accepted just 30% of the finances in order to make the fight happen, and Fury has branded the move ‘not clever’ in his latest video call out.
Draped in an England football top, Fury promised to smash Usyk and leave him without a world title, just like, as he was keen to point out, his domestic rival Anthony Joshua.
“Alex, Usyk’s manager, you sausage. Borat wants his voice back you f***ing bum. You’ll get what you’re getting, don’t worry. You’re the worst manager in history, got your fighter to accept 30%, you bum dosser.”
Haha. You’re not that clever are you you bum. You got outwitted by a man who never went to school in his life. Sausage! Keep talking. Your boy’s gonna get smashed, and he’s gonna be beltless like the other bum, AJ. Come on! Rule Britannia, motherf***er.”

It’s interesting Fury mentions ‘AJ’, as these very public and demanding talks are reminiscent of those between the British pair towards the end of 2022. No fight was made.
Despite accepting the financial split, Usyk’s side have since said that this only applies to an April 29 fight, and any rescheduled date will see them demand 50/50.
A down the middle split has been a contentious point throughout negotiations, especially since the fight looks likely to land in Fury’s home country at Wembley Stadium.
It’s hard to see Fury’s side agreeing to it, meaning even more pressure is on everyone involved to make the original timeline of April 29 work. Despite fitness concerns, Fury has said that he could fight this weekend.
