WBO, WBA, IBO and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk assessed the likelihood of a fight against WBC titleholder Tyson Fury.

The 36-year-old Ukrainian boxer believes that his fight with the Briton will still take place.

Oleksandr noted that his team is working to meet the immodest financial demands of the "Gypsy King" and organize a battle for the title of "absolute".

"I think our fight with Fury will take place. It is necessary to feed the belly button, and that's all. Puzan – Tyson Fury. He's just hungry and wants a lot of money. We are now raising money to feed and beat him," TVP Sport quoted the Ukrainian as saying.

Earlier it was reported that Fury once again defiantly "ran into" Usyk, supporting former world champion Deontay Wilder, who said the day before that he was Ukrainian afraid to fight him.

Recall that on April 29, Usyk and Fury were supposed to fight for the title of absolute world champion, but the parties could not agree on the terms of the contract for the fight, because of which it was canceled.

After the cancellation of the fight with the "Gypsy King", the Ukrainian team began negotiations about the fight with the mandatory contender for the WBA title, Briton Daniel Dubois.

On April 3, the WBA officially sanctioned the Usyk-Dubois fight.
