Oleksandr Usyk has issued yet another call out to Tyson Fury ahead of a potential undisputed heavyweight undisputed title fight between the pair.
The unified world champion posted a video to his official Twitter account of himself about to eat a stacked burger, and warned Fury – or “Belly” according to Usyk – that he would be next
“Belly! Look what I’m eating, yum yum yum. You’re next!”

The post has come just over a week after another video in which the Ukrainian taunted Fury with the unflattering nickname, as the mind games and trash talking the two have engaged in continues.
Whilst fighting talk has been rife, Promoter Bob Arum admitted there could be a need for the two teams to renegotiate purse splits due to issues regarding the location of the fight.
The generational clash was expected to land in the Middle East and therefore bring in a lucrative site fee, however Arum stated in a recent interview that the fighters were negotiating individual deals with representatives from Saudi Arabia and that Fury’s had not yet been agreed.
Whilst Usyk’s team have reportedly accepted an offer from the Kingdom, there will be no fight – certainly not in Saudi, at least – if Fury’s advisors cannot do the same.
A meeting between Fury and Usyk would be the first undisputed heavyweight world title fight in over two decades, since Lennox Lewis bested Evander Holyfield back in 1999.
