The WBC title holder, Tyson Fury, will do anything to avoid facing the WBA, WBO, and IBF heavyweight champion, Oleksandr Usyk, said Usyk’s manager, Egis Klimas, according to the U.S. boxing magazine The Ring on Feb. 3.

"Fury is a f*ing coward,” said Klimas.
“You can quote me word for word for that. When the news was brought to Oleksandr, he just smiled. That is all he did. He is too mentally strong to break.”
The Usyk vs. Fury fight was scheduled for Feb. 17, but was postponed indefinitely after the UK boxer was injured during a sparring session. The new date for the fight remains unknown.
The undefeated boxer, Filip Hrgović, agreed to fight with Usyk after the injury of the Gypsy King.
