With a constant flow of rumors circling around  a massive fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk, MyBettingSites caught up with the promoter of Usyk, Alexander Krassyuk. He revealed that fighting Tyson Fury would be more interesting than fighting Anthony Joshua, that he understands why Anthony Joshua would take the reported £15m to let Usyk and Fury fight, and how Tyson Fury has never met anyone as skilled as Usyk.

Alexander Krassyuk: ‘The opportunity to become the two division undisputed champion gives a huge incentive for Oleksandr (Usyk)’

“Usyk is the kind if man who is ready to accept the challenge. As long as Tyson has WBC heavyweight belt, that is pending in Usyk’s kit, he is a more favorable option sports wise.”

“The opportunity to become the two division undisputed champion gives a huge incentive for Oleksandr.”

“But we have the rematch obligations in front of AJ which was our conscious decision. There are no regrets or criticism about it as it was a part of our agreement. And definitely Usyk vs Fury fight cannot take place without AJ’s  consent. ”

Alexander Krassyuk: ‘This is a business with huge money’

“Professional boxing is not just sports. This is business with huge money. And if there is a chance to get that kind of money for not fight instead of risking your career in the rematch with the guarantee to face the winner next – it makes a lot of sense business-wise.”

Alexander Krassyuk: “Fury has never faced anyone as skilled as Usyk”

“I think that Fury has never faced anyone as skilled as Usyk.”

“And size does not matter much. It’s all about courage, determination, discipline, mindset, conditioning, attainments and boxing intelligence.  As Vitali Klitschko used to say – there is no strongest fighter in the world. It takes only how well you are prepared to act within 48 minutes of the fight. If you want to be the best you have to face the bests. Fury is the one!”
