The dramatic negotiations between Tyson Fury’s and Oleksandr Usyk’s teams have been ongoing since the start of this year, and has recently seen another spike in theatricals after Fury’s latest tirade against Usyk went viral. However, the same rant has seemingly not helped Fury’s case as he slipped in revealing that he was purposefully obstructing Usyk, the revelation which likely prompted him to leave social media all together as he reportedly starts his fighting camp for a blockbuster undisputed fight with Oleksandr Usyk.


Tyson Fury launches in a R-rated rant against Oleksandr Usyk’s manager, Alex Krassyk

In the video above, Fury can be seen taunting and insulting Oleksandr Usyk’s manager, Alex Krassyk, and mocking the manager’s decision to accept the 70-30 split offer that Tyson Fury had floated to Usyk’s team in the past two weeks. Pointedly, Fury ridiculed the acceptance of the 30% offer, and questioned Krassyk’s intelligence in doing so.

At the same time, Fury has inadvertently admitted to conducting unreasonable contract negotiations, a fact which had been predicted by Krassyk roughly a week before as he theorized that Fury was not truly interested in fighting Oleksandr Usyk and was looking for a way out of the fight.

I am experienced and I have been here for a while. Normally, when a fighter does not want to take a fight, he will ask for something impossible.“ Had been Krassyk’s answer before the 70-30 offer was on the table.

With his latest rant, and his refusal to accept a 60-40 deal that would see the winner get the bulk of the split purse, Tyson Fury has only further skewed opinions against him with his latest outburst. Following his tirade, the Fury took to social media to announce his temporary departure from social media as he would go on to enter training camp for the Oleksandr Usyk fight that – while not officially announced – is now set to commence on April 29 at the Wembley Stadium in London, England.
