  • Tyson Fury shares social media post and responds to Usyk call-out
  • The Gypsy King gives Usyk a verbal bashing and accepts challenge
  • Saudi Arabia expected to make an offer to host fight this week

Tyson Fury’s promoter Bob Arum shared last week that he was confident he could put together a massive heavyweight fight between “The Gypsy King” – Tyson Fury and Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk by Mach 2023.

Oleksandr Usyk, the WBA, IBF and WBO champion responded soon after on social media, calling out Fury and saying ‘where are you?’ The Gypsy King remained silent for a few days but he finally responded to the call out on social media.

Fury Says He Will “Bust Him Up Real Bad”

WBC heavyweight champ Tyson Fury has always been excellent on the mike and never afraid to taunt his opponents and promote the fight. The Gypsy King came out with one of his usual rants where he went after Usyk and called him a” rabbit“.

Fury has called Usyk a rabbit in the past and said his dad gave the Ukrainian the name ‘rabbit’ because he looks like one. He also reminded Usyk that he was boxing at middleweight rather than at heavyweight.

Fury has previously referred to himself as the “farmer who was coming to get the rabbit and would skin him alive and have him for breakfast!” (from 4:11 on video below) Fury ended his verbal tirade on Usyk by “promising to turn him into a big pile of tattoos“!


Saudi Arabia Expected To Make Offer This Week

The response from Fury is a good indicator that both camps are seriously interested in getting this fight done. Bob Arum has hinted that they expect Saudi Arabia to make an offer this week on hosting what could be one of the biggest heavyweight clashes in recent history as four belts are expected to be on the line.

Saudi Arabia has thrown big money in the past and outbid the UK and the USA to secure top heavyweight fights. Arum claims that if the offer from Saudi Arabia does not come through or is not as appealing as they expect it to be, they will most likely get the fight done at Wembley Stadium in the UK.

If the fight takes place in Wembley, it will give Fury a massive advantage over Usky as he will be fighting on home soil. Usyk will prefer Saudi Arabia as it’s a neutral venue!
