Oleksandr Usyk will not fight again unless it’s against Tyson Fury in a unification bout

Oleksandr Usyk called out Tyson Fury to a world heavyweight unification bout after beating Anthony Joshua for a second time in Saudi Arabia.

The Ukrainian retained his WBA, IBF and WBO titles through a split decision, and now attention turns to the duel to be crowned the division's number one. 

Fury underlined his retirement plans last week, but the WBC champion insists he would reverse that decision for the right price.

"To be honest with you, after watching that both of them were s****. It was one of the worst heavyweight title fights I have ever seen, it was bulls***," Fury said.

"I would annihilate both of them on the same night, fucking s****, get you (sic) f****** cheque book out because the Gypsy King is here forever.

"I've just seen Joshua lose for the second time to Usyk, out of his depth. England has been relieved of its belts but there is a remedy and solution that I can suggest.

"If you want those belts back then send in the Gypsy barbarian, send me in and I will relieve the Ukrainian dosser of his belts like I did the last Ukrainian dosser (Wladimir Klitschko in 2015).

"But it's not going to be cheap, if you want the best you have to pay."

Usyk, who put on another boxing masterclass against Joshua, insisted that he will only return to the ring if it's against Fury.

"I am convinced he wants to fight me. That is what he is dreaming of every day," Usyk said.

"I want to fight him. And if I'm not fighting Tyson Fury, I'm not fighting at all. I am going to beat his ass."
