'Did I ever say I wanted undisputed? If Usyk Wants a Large Bag? Not happening.' - Tyson Fury Talks About The Only Possibility Fans Can See Undisputed Heavyweight Title Fight

Boxing enthusiasts might be feeling disheartened about the prospects of a historic four-belt unification bout between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury ever materializing. Several unsuccessful negotiation attempts and a prolonged public blame game between the two fighters have left doubts lingering.

Recently, Tyson Fury outlined the conditions he deems necessary for him to step into the ring with Usyk for the long-awaited undisputed heavyweight world title showdown. During an interview with Fight Hub TV at the press conference for his upcoming fight against Francis Ngannou, Fury stated that he would only entertain the idea of facing Usyk if the Ukrainian boxer agreed to a “modest share” of the purse for the match.

Fury expressed some skepticism about his interest in becoming an undisputed champion, suggesting it was not his top priority. He also implied that he had other pressing concerns, notably his upcoming bout with Francis Ngannou. Nevertheless, he left the door open for a potential clash with Usyk if Usyk were willing to accept a smaller financial share for the fight. Fury made it clear that if Usyk demanded a substantial purse, the fight wouldn’t materialize.

“Has it ever been my priority? Did I ever say I wanted undisputed? It’s always been some other little b**** dream.

I’ve got Francis Ngannou to deal with. Should the other little sausage want to fight for the undisputed, and if he’s willing to take a small percentage then we might be able to make it happen.

But if he wants a large bag? Not happening.

Him [Usyk] and his team were s***houses! They get offered the fight at Wembley, and we moved on. That was it. Now we’re fighting Francis Ngannou, who is stepping up to the plate.”

The failed negotiations earlier in the year, which involved disputes over purse splits, choice of venue, and rematch clauses, had cast blame on Tyson Fury by many observers. However, his promoter, Frank Warren, recently expressed quiet confidence in the possibility of arranging a Fury vs. Usyk bout in 2024. Therefore, it remains to be seen whether Fury’s recent comments are merely a diversion or a genuine reflection of his stance on the matter.
