‘People are siding with a country at war’: Tyson Fury suggests judges awarded Usyk the victory due to the Ukraine war


British heavyweight Tyson Fury’s loss to Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday has now become something of an international controversy.

Usyk became the first undisputed world heavyweight champion in 24 years after earning a split-decision win over Fury. A 9th-round knockdown of Fury helped the Ukrainian’s narrow win on two of the judges’ scorecards.

However, the 6’8 British fighter did not agree with the decision.

“I believe I won that fight,” Fury said. “I believe he won a few of the rounds, but I won the majority of them, and I believe it was one of those what-can-you-do, one of them… decisions in boxing. We both put on a good fight, best we can do.

“You know, his country is at war, so people are siding with a country at war. But make no mistake, I won that fight, in my opinion, and I’ll be back. I’ve got a rematch clause.”
