Oleksandr Usyk’s Promoter Heaps Praise On John Fury
Alex Krassyuk, the promoter of Oleksandr Usyk has nothing but praise for John Fury.
John is the father and trainer of Tyson Fury who’s set to box Usyk in February for the undisputed heavyweight titles. It’s a massive fight, and heading into the matchup, Krassyuk says he has nothing but praise for John Fury.
“He likes entertaining and people in England like people who perform entertainment. He tries to stay in the headlines, tries to be in the videos but he is doing his job. Regarding my relationship I’ve only met him physically only once at the press conference. We shook hands, said hello to each other, introduced ourselves to each other so it was a nice experience and I have nothing bad to say about him. He knows his boxing and he is a good guy,” Krassyuk said (h/t BoxingScene).
Although Krassyuk has nothing but praise for John Fury, the promoter is just ready for the fight to happen.
Alex Krassyuk knows this fight was a lot to get done and is looking forward to the undisputed heavyweight title fight taking place.
“Listen, they are making fans dreams come true. Normally we are used to seeing from the networks in the US and UK that one fighter is with one promotional company, and one is from the other so this fight is very difficult to accomplish, to sign a contract and to distribute the profits. The fans really suffer from it,” Krassyuk said.
“But these guys, they are boxing fans, and they know what boxing fans want to see and they are making. Two or three, maybe five years ago we could hardly imagine that suddenly all of the biggest fights are coming in a room and taking place in one night. Who could imagine Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua, Joseph Parker, Daniel Dubois, Otto Wallin, Dmitry Bivol, Filip Hrgovic and many more fighting all in one night,” Krassyuk said.
Who do you think wins, Tyson Fury or Oleksandr Usyk?
