“You cannot trust what Tyson Fury says, because today he says one thing and tomorrow he says the opposite, and next day he changes it – half-opposite.

Oleksandr Usyk’s promoter Alexander Krassyuk has dismissed Tyson Fury’s retirement claims, saying “you cannot trust” the WBC heavyweight champion.

 

Fury knocked out Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium last month to retain the belt, which he will have to relinquish if his suggestions that he will not fight again are genuine.

 

 

‘You cannot trust him’: Oleksandr Usyk’s promoter dismisses Tyson Fury retirement
Fury has claimed that he will not compete again, though an undisputed title fight against Usyk – or Anthony Joshua – is on the cards

 

 

Oleksandr Usyk’s promoter Alexander Krassyuk has dismissed Tyson Fury’s retirement claims, saying “you cannot trust” the WBC heavyweight champion.

Fury knocked out Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium last month to retain the belt, which he will have to relinquish if his suggestions that he will not fight again are genuine.

 

 

Many fans believe that Fury, 33, will step in the ring once more for the chance to unify his belt with the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO straps, which are held by Usyk. The Ukrainian is set to defend them against Anthony Joshua in a rematch this summer.

 

 

That bout follows Usyk’s points win against “AJ” in north London last September to take the belts.

Krassyuk is among those who are confident that Fury will fight again, believing that the unbeaten Briton is destined for a clash with Usyk, who is also undefeated.

“I don’t take it seriously,” Krassyuk told Sky Sports of Fury’s retirement claims. “Once he is a 44-year-old who is tired of everything, then it might be some sort of truth. But he is on top, the world loves him, the world supports him, his country stands behind him. We’ve seen so many times retirements with comebacks.

 

 

You cannot trust what Tyson Fury says, because today he says one thing and tomorrow he says the opposite, and next day he changes it – half-opposite.
“He’s an entertainer, so he says what the public wants to hear from him. Just imagine, he insists on retirement and people around him try to convince to come back and he says, ‘No, no, no,’ and suddenly he makes the decision: ‘Okay, I will come back.’ It’s all about the interest, all about the publicity. He’s a big entertainer. That might be what he really thinks at the moment, but I’m not sure he will stay with this decision for a long time.”
