The father of Tyson fury assured that the boxer should focus on facing Oleksandr Usyk and forget about the rivals that will come out in the next few days.
“You have to go for Usyk or nothing, is what I think. It is Usyk the next or nothing, “he said John fury to talkSPORT. “I wouldn’t bother with the rest of them (rivals). They are not at the level of Tyson“.
In the same way, he criticized the promoters for wanting to confront Dillian whyte against him Gypsy king in their next fight.
“Dillian whyte I would beat Deontay Wilder? No. Then why would you want to put him with my son and knock him unconscious? ”Argued the father of Tyson fury. “At the end of the day, he was just knocked out by a 42-year-old man (Alexander Povetkin) with a pat on the hand ”.
John fury He assured that his son cannot lower his level at this point in his career, since the objective is to face the best.
Tyson he is not for that type of fights “, adds John fury. “He would not improve his level for that fight since the fight is not big enough. And then get in there with a mediocre attitude and you won’t see the best of Tyson. You only see the best of Tyson when he is against the best. A challenge like the one he had (against Wilder) and it was a great fight. For me, I said: Usyk or don’t bother ”.
Fury would face Usyk winner vs. Joshua in one year
“Maybe we can do (the fight) against the winner of that fight (Joshua vs Usyk)”, said Frank Warren, co promoter of Fury. “Fall, maybe around this time next year. They’re talking about putting that fight sometime in March, so they’ll need six months after that, that’s when it would happen. It would be an ideal world for Anthony Joshua not go to a rematch so we can go straight for the fight (before Usyk) “.
