Tyson Fury has said that he will crush Oleksandr Usyk when the pair fight each other later in 2023.
There are hopes and expectations that the fight could take place as early as March 2023, according to Fury‘s promoter Frank Warren.
The talk between the Ukrainian and the English fighters has been fierce in recent weeks and months, but now Fury has taken it another step further during an interview with The Telegraph.
“I don’t think he’s big enough and strong enough to stand up to the punches,” Fury said of the Ukrainian.
“It’s a challenge, he’ll be running away like a little b***h all night.
“I will hunt him down and, when I get hold of him, he’ll be crushed.”
Fury’s previous rant against Usyk
The pair will come face-to-face after Fury’s win over Derek Chisora, which led to an even more extreme rant from Fury towards Usyk.
“Where’s Usyk the rabbit? Me and you, sucker, next,” Fury said.
“Me and you! You’re getting it, little sucker. Rabbit! P***y!
“Look, a 15-stone little midget beat a bodybuilder. But I ain’t a bodybuilder, sucker.
“I’m gonna write you off!”
“I already done one Ukrainian in [Wladimir] Klitschko didn’t I? And I’ll do you as well, gappy teeth.
“You ugly little man. Lets get it on b***h.
“You may laugh now, but I’ll end this lil sucker. I’ll end you.
“You little sucker. What are you gonna do? You’re gonna do f**k all you little sausage.”
Usyk was widely praised by the boxing community in 2022 after he decided to head back to his native Ukraine in order to help fight against the Russian invasion of the country. He has since returned and continued to box.
