Tyson Fury lifts lid on Oleksandr Usyk rematch clause

“Never worry about what’s in the future and how many more dollars you can get after you’ve been defeated; worry about the fight, 29 April, no rematch clause. How about that? Agree to that.”

Usyk’s promoter Alex Krassyuk said last week that Fury, 34, had rejected a purse split of 60-40, weighted in favour of the winner. Ukrainian Usyk, 36, then accepted the WBC champion’s offer of 70-30.

Fury last fought in December, beating Derek Chisora for the third time to retain the WBC belt in London. Meanwhile, Usyk last boxed in August, outpointing Anthony Joshua for the second time in 11 months to retain the unified heavyweight titles that he took from the Briton in 2021.

Both Fury and Usyk are undefeated, with the latter having previously reigned as the only undisputed cruiserweight champion of the four-belt era.
