Oleksandr Usyk threatens to cancel Tyson Fury fight with strong ultimatum to Gypsy King

Oleksandr Usyk’s team are threatening to cancel the undisputed fight with Tyson Fury. The Ukrainian’s side is in the process of hiring a British counsel to look over the details of their client’s contract as the financial squabbling continues.

Both parties recently verbally agreed to a 70-30 split in Fury’s favour but the Ukrainian’s team is not happy with the way they have been treated. Usyk’s promoter Alexander Krassyuk had originally vowed that they wouldn’t accept anything less than 50-50.

The former undisputed cruiserweight champion holds three of the four major sanctioning body belts which Krassyuk believes justifies an even split. Meanwhile, Fury claims he deserves a 70 per cent lion’s share of the prize pot as the bigger financial draw.

Usyk came out and accepted Fury’s demands on the condition that he donated 10 per cent of his purse to Ukraine which The Gypsy King appeared to accept. However, following the verbal agreement last week, the deal has still not been closed.

Fury vs Usyk is in jeopardy

Speaking to SNAC Nutrition, Usyk’s manager Egis Klimas said: “We’ve been in negotiations for the fight for three months, and Tyson Fury’s side was coming back and forth with, ‘we need this, we need that, Tyson wants this, he doesn’t want to give tickets, the split,’ this and that and that.

“We’re tired, and we have obligations with other mandatory fighters, we don’t want to hold them. We had the obligations with the WBA. Most likely Tyson was trying to pull a scam, bluffing, he came out in the media and said, ’70-30, take it or leave it.’

Usyk’s side are seeking legal advice

“And before the negotiation, from Tyson’s people, from Tyson’s attorney, he came in and said Tyson wants to put in a rematch clause in the contract, and we said, ‘no problem, let’s put the rematch clause.'”

He added: “We’re going to wait because right now we’re in the process of hiring British counsel because they are going by the British rules. We are the outsider, but we can’t just play by everything they throw to us. Enough is enough.”

Usyk and Fury are expected to square off on April 29 at London’s Wembley Stadium but with so little time left to promote the event, a deadline for the end of this week has been set for the two parties to sign on the dotted line. It is unlikely this will be met judging from the current situation.
