Fury Vows To Knock Out Usyk’s Manager For Disrespecting His Wife – ‘I’ll Take Your F***ing Teeth Out’
The backlash comes after Fury’s decision to pull out of his fight with Usyk on February 17th. The Gypsy King withdrew after sustaining a big cut in sparring over his right eye, no longer allowing him to fight. In response, Usyk’s team were very vocal bout Fury’s withdrawal. The Ukrainian’s promoter, Alex Krassyuk, urged Fury to retire. Then, Klimas followed those comments up by calling Fury a ‘coward’ and using some words alleged to be directed at Fury’s wife, Paris Fury.
Klimas Vs Fury
“Fury is a f**** coward who will do anything not to face Usyk, and he asked his b**** to hit him with a frying pan in his brow. 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. I was waiting for this moment,” Klimas stated
Those comments did not sit well with Fury, who hit back immediately. He questioned Klimas for calling him a coward since the promoter had never boxed professionally. He also made it clear he had over 30 fights, showing that he was far from ducking anyone. Fury was angered by the comments, with the narrative that he was looking for something to get out of the fight. In response, this is what he had to say.
“Egis, never call me a coward again. I’ve had 35 professional fights, I’ve been boxing 18 years of my life. I’ve climbed off the canvas ten times off the biggest punchers in history to win. Never a coward, never backed down from any man in my life and if any man calls my wife a b****, I’ll take your f***ing teeth out,” Fury said
Fury Vs. Usyk
Klimas clarified that his comments were not directed towards Fury’s wife, as the Gypsy King then accepted it. But there are restrictions in place for the new date of May 18. Both fighters must give up $10 million from their purse if they pull out of the bout. Usyk has also been given a chance to face the opponent of his choice if Fury does pull out.
But there are still question marks over whether Fury will have the fight. After beating Wladimir Klitschko, Fury was set to face the Ukrainian in a rematch. The fight never happened, as Fury retired with mental health issues, leaving Klitschko with no opportunity to win the belts back.
There is also the suggestion that this is another set of mind games by Fury for trying to get into Usyk’s head. But the Ukrainian has shown that he is not cracking under pressure, saying he is already in Fury’s head. Given Fury’s heated response, there may be some truth to that. But come fight night, both fighters will have nowhere to hide.
