One member of Oleksandr Usyk’s camp did not hold back on Tyson Fury.
A deal between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk has been struck for the undisputed world heavyweight title.
After months of negotiating, Usyk and his team accepted Fury’s 70/30 split offer for the fight which is likely to land on April 29 at Wembley Stadium.
However, with Fury reportedly being the component which was stopping the fight being made, Sergey Lapin, a member of Usyk’s team, claims that the WBC world heavyweight champion was being greedy when it came to the finances and is disrespecting boxing fans with his conduct.
“Fury once again misleads the fans and disrespects boxing. There’s a pattern of misdirection when it comes to Fury,” Lapin told Best Sports Betting Canada.
“Did he ever donate that money to the homeless people that he promised early on in his career? What happened to his retirement?”
“At one point he said 50-50 was the correct split of the purse to face Usyk, what happened to that? Now we’re at 70-30 and we’re awaiting the next hoop to jump through.
“How far will you continue to go to avoid Usyk, Tyson? Who knows what new demand we’ll receive this week, will it be the colour of our shorts on fight night, or a certain ring walk song we’ll need to use?
“Maybe it’s all mind games, to try and get into Usyk’s head, but Fury should know Usyk is built differently. He’s unbreakable.”
