Usyk Promoter Questions Fury's Sparring Footage Amidst Fight Postponement

The anticipated undisputed heavyweight championship between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury, set for Feb. 17, faced a setback after Fury suffered a serious cut during a sparring session. While the cut was confirmed, doubts have been raised by Usyk’s promoter, Alexander Krassyuk, regarding the legitimacy of the evidence presented.

A press release from Fury’s promoter, Queensberry, included a photo of Fury with a deep cut over his right eye. The fight was rescheduled to May 18 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, with Fury appearing stitched up in a video interview alongside Saudi Arabia power broker Turki Alalshikh.

Krassyuk, not disputing Fury’s cut, raised questions about sparring footage widely shared on social media. He expressed skepticism about the video, where Fury is seen reacting to a left uppercut, stating, “It’s not a convincing video.” Krassyuk also questioned a picture Fury posted showcasing his trim physique, suggesting it might be an old image.

Despite doubts about the sparring video, Krassyuk acknowledged the severity of Fury’s cut. He emphasized, “The picture of the cut, yeah, it shows us the fact. The cut is severe.” However, he continued to question the circumstances leading to the injury, pointing out discrepancies in the footage.

Krassyuk revealed that Fury’s medical report, indicating a two to three-month recovery period, was confirmed by Saudi partners. The fight’s postponement adds more intrigue to the already highly-anticipated clash between Usyk and Fury.
