Just In: The boxing boss Bob Arum reveals that he’ll put forth the negotiation for the Oleksandr Usyk vs. Tyson Fury undisputed fight, given that Fury successfully defends his WBC Crown against Derek Chisora on Saturday.
However, if Fury gets in the way of the negotiations, as he did when he refused to face Anthony Joshua on the scheduled dates and ruined the whole deal with a stupid deadline, Arum might not be able to set up his battle against Usyk.
For the upcoming WBC Title Clash, Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) is a hot favorite over Chisora (33-12, 23 KOs), who, for many fans, doesn’t even deserve the shot, containing a 1-3 record in the last four fights, unless, he pulls off any upset, ruining the entire show for Fury.
While talking to a Pro Boxing Fan, Arum said, “I don’t see any reason why the Uysk fight with Tyson can’t happen speedily without much hassle. I know the Usky staff very well. I know Oleksandr Osyk. I know he wants the fight. I also talked with Tyson a little while ago, and he wants the fight too.”
“That Fight will happen next unless Mr.Chisora manages to upset. Don’t discount Chisora. He has a tremendous punch. They’re crazy. I’m giving Chisora a hell of an opportunity. I remember his facing Usky, and that was life or death for Usky,” Arum concluded.
