Usyk’s manager claims that the Ukrainian “Cannot Beat” Tyson Fury

The manager of World Heavyweight Champion Oleksandr Usyk has said that a fight between his man and Tyson Fury would be like a game of cat and mouse.

Egis Klimas, who has been by Usyk’s side for his journey to the sport’s elite level, caught up Fight Hub TV to give an update on his fighter since successfully defending his belts against Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia.

When asked about the next time we would see the Ukrainian champion in the ring, Kilmas replied ‘probably in February, definitely not this year.’ He went on to say that his fighter was only interested in an undisputed fight with Tyson Fury and that his reasons for being out of the ring until then were bigger than boxing.

“After [Joshua] fight, Oleksandr went back to Ukraine. As we speak, he has just returned from the front line. He went to cheer soldiers. We know the country is fighting – really fighting in the real world, it’s not boxing – and he’s got his foundation, he’s helping a lot of people, and he’s doing his duty for the country. Therefore, he cannot prepare for a fight.”

On his prediction for the fight, there is no surprise that Klimas is confident of an Usyk win, although he is under no illusions about the likely method, saying his man ‘can’t beat’ Fury.

“Fury’s a big guy. I’d say Usyk can’t beat Fury, Usyk can win [against] Rage. It’s a big difference between beat and win. Usyk beat Bellew, Usyk won against Joshua. He didn’t beat Joshua, he won [against] Joshua. Rewatch Usyk Joshua’s second fight very closely and count how many knockout punches you will see coming from Usyk. And tell me – did he beat Joshua or did he beat Joshua? He won [against] Joshua ever single round, but he did not beat. Joshua got tired, but [Usyk] didn’t hit [him]. He won. That’s what makes him the fighter he is.”

“Of course [Usyk beats Fury on points]it will be like cat and mouse.”

It is hoped that as the Ukrainian is a free agent in terms of broadcasts and UK promotional deals, the fight can be taken relatively lightly early next year. As Usyk returns to training and begins to prepare, ‘The Gypsy King’ is set to announce a December opponent this week.
