In his opinion, too sharp statements on social networks are to blame.
The promoter of the WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) Frank Warren suggested why the fight between the Briton and the holder of the WBA, WBO, IBO and IBF titles Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) did not take place.
According to him, the reason for the failure of the fight was disputes in social networks.
“You know what killed this fight? Social media. All the bullshit on social media. If people did everything in an adult way, then there would be no problems.
This is how it all works out: everyone says something and justifies their words, and the fighters take a position, ”Boxing Social reports the words of Frank Warren.
Note that Usyk and Fury have repeatedly exchanged public appeals on social networks. In early January 2023, Alexander posted a photo after training in the pool and called the Englishman “pot-bellied”. The “gypsy king” replied that he was already following the Ukrainian, calling him a “rabbit”. After that, Usyk twice published provocative posts, referring to Fury “belly”. Tyson didn’t answer anymore.
In March, it became known that Usyk made many steps to meet for the fight. Representatives of the boxers agreed on a fee of 70:30 in favor of Fury, and the fight was also supposed to take place in the homeland of the British, but Tyson also wanted to exclude the rematch option from the contract.
On March 22, it became known that the fight between Usyk and Fury would not take place. The next opponent of the Ukrainian will be a French boxer.
