Tyson Fury Says He’s Destined To Become Undisputed Champion
Tyson Fury believes it’s his destiny to become the undisputed heavyweight champion.
Fury is set to face Oleksandr Usyk on February 17 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to crown an undisputed heavyweight champion. It’s a big fight and Fury says it’s his destiny to become the heavyweight king, and all he needs to do is beat Usyk.
“We’re both destined to be here in this right. There’s only one winner. I’m destined to become undisputed champion,” Fury stated (h/t BoxingScene). “More important than that, I’m destined to cement my legacy as the number one heavyweight of this era. To get there, all I’ve got to do is beat this little man. That’s it. Simple as that.”
Tyson Fury is coming off a split decision win over Francis Ngannou in a performance that wasn’t performance. However, Fury has full confidence he will be much better this time around, but knows beating Oleksandr Usyk won’t be easy.
“I know it’s easier said than done,” Fury said of the task at hand. “Oleksandr is a good boxer, slick and all of that. But listen, I’ve seen many, many people like him before. When they face the big man, they struggle. He is going to struggle on February 17 and he will lose. I will break him, for sure.”
Although this is a massive fight on Feb. 17, there is a rematch clause, which means Fury and Usyk will have to run it back regardless of the result.
Tyson Fury (34-0-1) is coming off the split decision win over Ngannou and before that, he scored a TKO win over Derek Chisora. In his career, he holds notable wins over Deontay Wilder, twice, Wladimir Klitschko, Otto Wallin, and Christian Hammer among others.
