Oleksandr Usyk’s manager Eglis Klimas has taken another shot at Tyson Fury, describing everything he says is not true in some form or another.
Representatives of team Usyk, as well as Deontay Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott and Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn, all confirmed they had been contacted by representatives from Saudi Arabia about the possibility of competing on the same night in December, an event Tyson Fury would also be part of.
Despite this, Fury took to social media last week to claim that the reports of negotiations were untrue, describing them as “bulls***.”
Speaking to Boxing Social, Klimas stated ‘The Gypsy King’s comments come from “his imagination,” and they are ‘frustrated’ dealing with him.
“Nothing’s surprising me about what’s coming out of Tyson Fury. We’re frustrated dealing with him.”
“Anything that comes from him is either untrue, or from some part of his imagination.”
The plans from Skills Challenge Group in Saudi are said to be for Fury to face Usyk and Joshua to take on Wilder on the same card later this year, in what would be an historic night for the sport.
Usyk looks set to take on mandatory challenger Daniel Dubois before that, however, whereas Fury will reportedly take on either Andy Ruiz Jr or Zhilei Zhang.
Joshua had been set for a July fight against Dillian Whyte, however this now looks up in the air after he recently stated on his Instagram story that his next fight would not be until December.
If it goes ahead, the event in Saudi would almost certainly be the richest card in boxing history, with a figure of £300 million being cited.
