Tyson Fury claims he only needs two weeks training to ‘splatter’ Oleksandr Usyk

In usual Tyson Fury style, the heavyweight giant certainly wasn't short of confidence when discussing a fight with Oleksandr Usyk. After his proposed bout with Anthony Joshua was scrapped, it was this week revealed that Fury would take on old rival Derek Chisora in December.

Many in the world of boxing had hoped to see Fury take on either of Usyk and Joshua, after the pair fought it out earlier this summer, which saw the Ukrainian defeat AJ for a second successive time. After numerous breakdowns though, the Gypsy King will instead fight for Chisora for a third time.

Whilst a bout with Usyk is expected in the next 12 months, Fury has insisted his fight with Chisora is in no way preparation to take on the Ukrainian further down the line.

Confident that he would not need long to prepare to face the Ukrainian, the Gypsy King said: "I’m not preparing for Usyk at all. I’ll train for him for two weeks. I do not rate him. People keep going on about Usyk… why couldn’t he do anything with Chisora when they boxed?

"I’m going to splatter him. How’s he going to do anything with me? He’s not.” Prior to his plan to fight this winter, Fury announced that he would be retiring from boxing following his latest victory over Dillian Whyte in April of this year.

Now though the Mancunian-born fighter has revealed he would find it hard to call time on his boxing career due to his mental health struggles. He went on: "I don’t think I can live a normal life.

"I feel I need medical help to be able to do that and if there is somebody out there who could help me, I’d love them to get in touch. I won’t be able to leave this game and have a normal life unless I’m brain-trained to do that because a normal life is out of order for me."

Revealing that he is targeting a fight in February with Usyk, he went on: "I’ll just keep going, keep fighting. I’m going to have three fights next year, starting in February with Usyk and if he wants a rematch, he can have a rematch.

"Then someone at the back end of the year — Deontay Wilder if he’s mandatory, Joe Joyce, Daniel Dubois, there’s plenty of British beef to go after Chisora.”
