Tyson Fury has made his first public comments about his historic undisputed fight with Oleksandr Usyk in December.
The fight was announced last month with no venue or date but all sides seemed to agree it has been signed. It will only take place if WBC king Fury gets through his fight with former MMA champion Francis Ngannou on October 28, which on paper he should given that Ngannou will be making his boxing debut.
Speaking to Boxing King Media, former opponent Derek Chisora asks if we will see the fight with WBA, WBO and IBF champion in December, which is reported to have a two-way rematch clause.
“Listen, I’m not really too bothered about Usyk at the moment ’cause I’ve got Big Francis to deal with. After that’s dealt with and I get out of there injury-free, in one piece, we’re on like Donkey Kong.”
Fury then suggested he would brush aside the smaller man with ease and outlined the weight loss he has been through in his most recent and longest camp.
‘I’ll deal with his little guy. I’ll swat him off like a little piece of rain off my shoulder. But until that day I always give every single person I fight 100%. I’ll have been training by the time the fight comes around for 12 weeks. I only usually train for four or five weeks but I’ve been out for a year. I’ve lost like 150lbs in four weeks just by dieting. I”ll see you out there.”
