In the lead-up to Tyson Fury’s highly anticipated clash with Oleksandr Usyk on February 17, rumors swirled about a potential knockdown in sparring involving Jai Opetaia, a key member of Fury’s training team in Saudi Arabia. Opetaia’s promoters swiftly quashed the speculation, setting the record straight on the Australian cruiserweight’s brief sparring sessions and dispelling any talk of a drop.

Opetaia, set to face Mairis Briedis on the undercard, completed just five rounds of sparring before returning to Australia due to a shortage of orthodox training partners. Social media buzzed with speculation about the alleged knockdown, prompting Opetaia’s promoters to release a statement, emphasizing the competitiveness and positive experience of the training rounds with Fury.

The Australian cruiserweight, now back in Australia, is gearing up to defend his world title and expressed eagerness to showcase his skills in Saudi Arabia. The statement categorically denied the occurrence of any knockdowns during the sparring sessions with Fury.

As the boxing world eagerly anticipates the Fury-Usyk clash, the drama surrounding Opetaia’s rumored knockdown adds an intriguing layer to the pre-fight narrative. TNT Sports promises to capture all the excitement in 2024, including the headline event of Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk.

Fury, fresh from a contentious victory over Francis Ngannou, is confident in delivering an improved performance against Usyk. The British heavyweight, known for his colorful trash talk, unleashed verbal jabs at his Ukrainian opponent, dismissing concerns about Usyk’s size and predicting a challenging bout.

“We’re both undefeated. He’s a champion, I’m a champion. It’s going to be a fight for the ages,” declared Fury, highlighting the significance of the undisputed championship. He downplayed Usyk’s size, emphasizing the fight’s intensity rather than physical dimensions.

In a final verbal jab, Fury asserted his destiny to become the undisputed champion and cement his legacy as the era’s top fighter. He predicted Usyk’s struggle against a bigger opponent and confidently proclaimed, “I will break him.”

As the countdown to February 17 begins, fans await the clash between two undefeated champions, each aiming to etch their name in boxing history. Fury’s verbal onslaught sets the stage for what promises to be an electrifying showdown in Saudi Arabia.
