Usyk Breaks Silence on Fury Fear and Postponed Showdown "The Game Has Started"
The much-anticipated clash between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk, slated for February 17, was abruptly postponed after Fury sustained a ‘freak cut’ in sparring. Now, Ukrainian boxing genius Usyk has broken his silence on the matter, claiming that the fear from Fury is ‘real,’ and asserting, “The game has started.”
Usyk, just over two weeks away from a potential life goal of unifying world title belts in two weight classes, expressed a calm demeanor despite the setback. Trusting in divine guidance, he acknowledged the unexpected turn of events and commented, “The game has already started, and whatever is written for the future is already written.”
Addressing the video circulating that seems to capture Fury’s cut, Usyk remained analytical, stating, “It was a punch with a fist, you can see that the direction of the elbow is following the fist afterward, but it is difficult to read it from the video. You see that there is a clear uppercut – a very clear one – but whether it caused the cut, we don’t know.”
In response to the verbal sparring between Fury and Usyk’s manager, Egis Klimas, Usyk kept it simple, stating, “I don’t know whether he [Fury] wants to fight me or not, but the fact that he is scared is real.”
As the boxing world eagerly awaits the rescheduled bout on May 18, the narrative surrounding Fury’s injury and the psychological warfare between the fighters adds another layer of intrigue to an already highly anticipated matchup.
