    You'd be very hard pressed to find any champion, let alone one of Usyk's stature and vast accomplishments, who is more reasonable and flexible to deal with. Aside from the fact it's blindingly obvious to everyone with a semi-functioning brain and his track record is immaculate, it's equally obvious that Belly is the complete opposite, is as dishonest as the day is long, and he treated Usyk with the utmost disrespect from the get-go, threw obstacle after obstacle in the way to prevent a fight from happening he openly admitted he never wanted years ago.

    He expected Usyk to bow to his every demand and allow him to disrespect the hell out of him every step of the way despite the deck already being stacked heavily in his favour as it was while he himself refused to make any concessions that were even slightly disadvantageous to him. Respect and compromise are obviously essential when it comes to entering into a business deal in good faith and Belly gave Usyk zero.

    Let him sulk. He’ll soon forget about these two. Maybe he’ll find more teenage things to be depressed about.

    Mark of a true champion who puts legacy above financial gain

    I don't know, man.....Krassyuk could barely look into the camera at all in that interview and he had a sort of strange smile on his face a lot.......I think they're pulling our legs and will announce the fight 4-1.

    I'm not sure if you are serious, but you are totally missing the context. Personally, I never cared for trash talk - it's something I absolutely don't like in boxing. Grown men talking and acting like high school bullies in a schoolyard, and that's supposed to be exciting/interesting?

    But the point is, Deontay "I want a body on my record" Wilder is very much a trash talker himself who likes to act tough on, insult, threaten etc. his opponents. On the other hand, you have the respectful, gentlemanly type of guy Usyk who never said a bad word about any other fighters ever so verbally attacking him like that was unwarranted and classless.

    More of wasn't fully honest and tried to pass some straight lies. We can see him how he replies in other interviews to some questions.

    It sounds like you haven't seen many interviews with Alex. He is always like that. The fight is off, Fury is not even in camp, SugarHill confirmed he never came to the UK to train him.

    Besides, announcing a fight on April Fool's Day? Nah, that would never work, especially after all this drama and controversy that have been going on.

    Yes it's sad when a young kid learns his idol has feet of clay, or in Fury's case, a mouth of clay. Watch the Plant-Benevidez this weekend and he'll get his boxing chops back.

    Usyk got all his demands

    Fight on the 29th only

    Rematch clause

    But the same rematch clause he accepted off Joshua was not sufficient against Fury

    Usyk put a timeline on negotiations

    Usyk abandoned negotiations

    Now he gets knocked out for peanuts against Dubois

    No, Usyk doesn't lie, he really offered Joyce 7% of the PPVs, after his team's "calculations of how much each deserves". So what he accuses Fury now is something he already did to duck a fight.

    Krassyuk tried calling Furys bluff for the 29th April thinking Fury wouldn't accept

    Fury took his 70-30 offer and was ready to fight on 29th April

    Krassyuk got his rematch clause when he threatened to pull Usyk out in his first attempt to cancel the fight

    Krassyuk got the same terms for a rematch as he got with the Joshua rematch

    Krassyuk suddenly realised if he didnt abandon negotiations that the first fight was actually going to go ahead on the 29th April

    Krassyuk had tied Usyk into an appalling 30 percent split that makes him the worst financial negotiator in history

    Krassyuk set false deadlines then pulled the plug on negotiations before the deadline to break the deal, so in future he will earn Usyk twice as much from fighting Fury in the middle east.

    Meanwhile Daniel Dubois will KO Usyk for relative peanuts.

    Fury wasn't even training anyways ffs it's pretty obvious he had no interest in fighting Usyk.

    Usyk has backed out because of pride and I can't blame him.

    He was being run around by Fury and eventually decided his dignity was worth more than giving in to every single one of this guys demands.
