Alex Krassyuk Doubts Fury Fight Will Happen

The promoter of Oleksandr Usyk, Alex Krassyuk, has cast more doubts on an undisputed showdown between Usyk and WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, following more very public negotiations from the "Gypsy King."

Late on Friday, the WBA had confirmed that Fury and Uysk had reached a "tentative agreement" over an undisputed clash for April 29th at London's Wembley Stadium, following a day of public back and forth over purse splits of which Fury offered a 70/30 split in his favour take it or leave it. Usyk accepted this proposal with a caveat of a £1 million donation to the people of Ukraine following Russia's invasion of Usyk's home country of Ukraine. Furthermore, Fury had announced that he had begun his training camp, which raised the hopes of a fight between the pair taking place even further. 

Fury threw a spanner into the works in demanding that there should be no rematches in the fighter after claiming lawyers involved in the negotiations had informed him that a rematch clause was involved in the proposed bout agreement. Fury disproved such a concept and demanded it be removed before finalising talks. 

This morning on Talksport, Krassyuk spoke regarding the latest demand from Fury and feel's it is a tactical ploy from Fury for the fight to collapse and not to take place. Krassyuk adds that he does not believe or trust Fury and will keep finding ways to prolong talks between himself and Usyk. 

Earlier in the interview, Krassyuk also stated that the rematch clause Fury mentions came from the negotiators on behalf of Fury first. Krassyuk admitted that he accepted the rematch clause because it had made sense.
