Frank Warren weighed in on the biggest fights the heavyweight division can bring.
After broken talks with Anthony Joshua, WBC Champion Tyson Fury will face Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed title in the division for the first time in two decades.
Despite the importance of the fight between the UK and Ukraine, talk is still lingering around the domestic clash with Joshua, who has lost to Usyk twice.
Talking to TalkSPORTFury’s promoter, Warren, says the battle with Usyk is more international.
“I think for the boxing world, it’s Usyk. As a boxing fan, I think again Usyk. But as British, I suppose we all want to [see the AJ fight]. Even myself, I want to prove that I think Tyson is a better fighter than AJ.”
“I have to be honest, I’d rather AJ be in the opposite corner than Derek Chisora but we’ve got to where it needs to be.”
“The fight with Usyk was a better fight because Usyk defeated him [AJ] twice.”
Regardless of the bigger fight, Warren says the fight with Joshua is now dead in the water, arguing that Fury is upset by past negotiations.
“As far as AJ is concerned, [Tyson’s] was upset because for years this was on, it was off, it still works. And in the meantime, AJ’s value has dwindled. He was beaten. He was defeated three times in his last five battles.
An announcement of the undisputed fight between Fury and Usyk is expected after Christmas, perhaps the first week of January, with March 4 targeted and location undecided.
