As it stands now, fans and followers still have a chance to witness the undisputed title fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk. At the beginning of the month, Usyk’s promoter revealed that talks were going haywire as Fury disagreed with the 60/40 split between the winner and loser. Last Friday, ‘The Gypsy King’ threw his final 70/30, take it or leave offer to Usyk. The latter seems to have accepted it. Amidst frequent tongue-lashing, the Mancunian boxing champion announces on Tuesday that he’s returning to training in preparation for the April 29 fight, be it Usyk or someone else.

He took to social media and announced a complete blackout until the fight date. He said, “Hi, guys, as fun as it’s been over the last few days terrorizing Usyk and his team, tomorrow I’m gonna knuckle down into training camp, and I’ll be doing a blackout as I always do on social media.” Subsequently, a message on Twitter followed.

But today, early in the morning, talkSPORT’s Michael Benson shared the latest video where the undefeated WBC champion and members of his training staff came together for an open call-out of the Ukrainian pure-boxer. They shouted, “Usyk is a p***y.” However, instead of rousing, the sudden appearance amidst self-imposed censorship seems to have confused fans and followers.

Fans could not help themselves from voicing their thoughts and emotions openly.

Fans read the riot act to Tyson Fury for failing to keep his word

To @StellarOak, the entire show proved embarrassing. Tyson Fury has made himself so repellent, he lamented.

@OnionRingsHearn seems to concur as well that, in total, what Fury did along with the team was degrading.

@ninja35 touched a sore spot that perhaps Fury is afraid of facing Oleksandr Usyk.


Disgraced Heavyweight Claims Deontay Wilder Is “Not the Same Person Mentally” After Fury Loss

@JonathanShadbu2 recollected what Fury had mentioned regarding the social media blackout and wondered what happened suddenly.

@MichaelNUFC180 also seems to wonder what happened to all those declarations on a social media blackout.

Unfortunately, if the Fury-Usyk fight doesn’t come about to fans’ utter disappointment, then for Usyk, it’s a straightforward mandatory fight. It probably should be the WBA (Regular) Heavyweight champion, Daniel Dubois. On the other hand, Fury has options. Reportedly, he might fight either Andy Ruiz Jr. or, who knows, even Anthony Joshua may turn up!
