Oleksandr Usyk’s face the moment Tyson Fury knocked down by Ngannou goes viral as he ‘sees dollar signs fading away’ | The Sun
OLEKSANDR USYK was left utterly shell-shocked when Tyson Fury was knocked down by Francis Ngannou on Saturday night.
The Ukrainian, 36, signed to fight Fury in an undisputed clash that was due to take place on December 23.
It now seems as though that could be pushed back to 2024 after Fury's promoter Frank Warren admitted it was doubtful The Gypsy King would be ready for the end of the year.
But Usyk's blockbuster showdown with the WBC champion could have been off the table altogether had Fury lost to Ngannou.
The former UFC heavyweight champion, 37, floored Fury with a cuffing left hook in the third round of their bout in Saudi Arabia.
The shocking moment left all those in attendance utterly stunned.
