Eddie Hearn, the promoter of Tyson Fury, has revealed a surprise reason why the highly anticipated fight between Fury and Oleksandr Usyk is at risk of collapsing. Hearn has also brutally slammed Fury, also known as the Gypsy King, over his demands for the fight.
The fight between Fury and Usyk was set to be one of the biggest heavyweight fights of the year, with both fighters being former undisputed world champions. However, Hearn has revealed that the fight is now in danger of not happening due to Fury’s demands.
Hearn said that Fury’s demands for the fight have been “unrealistic” and “unreasonable”. He said that Fury has been asking for too much money and too much control over the fight. Hearn said that Fury’s demands have been “ridiculous” and that he has been “trying to take over the whole show”.
Hearn also said that Fury has been trying to dictate the terms of the fight, which is something that he should not be doing. Hearn said that Fury should be focusing on the fight itself and not trying to control the entire event.
Hearn also said that Fury has been trying to take advantage of Usyk’s lack of experience in the heavyweight division. He said that Fury has been trying to use Usyk’s inexperience to his advantage and that it is unfair to Usyk.
Hearn said that he is still hopeful that the fight will happen, but that Fury needs to be more reasonable with his demands. He said that Fury needs to understand that Usyk is a former undisputed world champion and that he deserves to be treated with respect.
Hearn’s comments come as a surprise to many, as Fury has been seen as a fan favorite in the boxing world. However, Hearn’s comments show that Fury needs to be more reasonable with his demands if he wants the fight to happen. It remains to be seen if Fury will take Hearn’s advice and make the necessary changes to make the fight happen.
