by Charles Brown: Anthony Joshua promoter Eddie Hearn reacted bewildered and surprised to Tyson Fury’s laughing video post on Twitter on Friday. Hearn says Fury “packed it” by saying he didn’t want to fight IBF/IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk next.
According to Hearn, Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) was insisting on a temporary fight before fighting Usyk for his titles, and they couldn’t allow it.
Since Fury fought only three months earlier on October 9 against Deontay Wilder, Hearn didn’t understand his need for a temporary fight before facing Usyk.
It would be one thing if Fury was coming out of a long absence and badly in need of an adjustment in order to prepare for the undefeated Usyk challenge (19-0, 13 KOs), but for him to ask for a warm-up only three months into his last fight, it seems that He didn’t have the guts to fight.
Hearn says he spoke to Osek’s promoter Alex Krasuk, and told him that Fury “filled it in.” In other words, Fury lost his temper and lacked the self-confidence or the courage to face the undefeated Oleksandr for his titles.
Hearn says Fury lost
“I don’t know what Fury thinks. I saw his Instagram post. ‘AJ lost money.’ No, he lost money because he turned down a Usic fight afterwards. That’s the reality,” Eddie Hearn told iFL TV.
Hearn said of his desire to move forward with his Fury vs. Dillian Whyte and Anthony Joshua vs.
“So he’s going to keep fighting and fight Dillian White. I don’t know, I don’t know,” Hearn said in response to Fury’s laughing video on Twitter. “We’re easy.
If we had talks about letting Fury fight for the undisputed title [against Usyk]We’ll have those conversations, but he’s decided he doesn’t want to fight for the undisputed title.
“I saw his post a week ago where he said, ‘You let the Ukrainian take all your belts. Now I will do that. You’re not because you said you needed a fight between them. Why do you need a fight between them?
“He gets to do whatever he wants, but I don’t know what he’s laughing about. AJ climbed onto the board to fight Oleksander Usyk. No, ‘I need one in the middle or hold on to it, I’m just going to do a few Instagram posts, pretending I want to fight it.'”
“I have spoken with [Oleksandr’s promoter] Alex Krasuk last night. They feel like Tyson Fury has mobilized [Usyk] Osik fight. One thing you’ll find out about Anthony Joshua, he’ll fight anyone, and he’s proven that time and time again.
Fury doesn’t want to fight Osik
“Nobody wants to fight Olekander Osek. I don’t blame Tyson Fury, but AJ did it right away. A lot of people have dropped that.” [WBO] Belt. It looks like he has come to fight it again and has another try.
‘It’s a tough job. Look at the long-form agreement.’ Tyson said, ‘No, I want a temporary. I don’t want to fight Osik. Immediately, I want a temporary. That was another thing that killed her. [the step aside deal for Joshua].

“We don’t necessarily want to trust a lot of people to have a fight and then fight AJ afterwards unless it’s tangible on paper and there are penalties. But what we don’t allow is a temporary fight, then Osik, then another fight.
“Three fights a year. When did that happen? We were all ready to have this conversation, but it didn’t seem irrelevant. In the end, Fury wanted to fight in March. He wanted to do a warm-up and then fight Usik. In the end, when that failed.” , he said, “I’ll fight Dillian White instead.”
“I think the 29th of April is the date when we win the money supply [for Fury vs. Whyte] that we have to struggle through. So, we have to fight by then.
“That’s a fury against Whyte. AJ, I think that could be a little later. That will be in May,” Hearn said when he fights Joshua Usek in the rematch.
“There’s a silly businessman out there,Fury said on Twitter Friday in response to his choice not to fight Usyk.
