Oleksandr Usyk ACCEPTS Tyson Fury’s ‘70/30’ demands for mega fight – if WBC champion donates £1m to Ukraine
leksandr Usyk has accepted Tyson Fury’s fight terms for the unification fight but only if the British boxer donates £1million to Ukraine.
London’s Wembley Stadium has been booked for April 29 for the huge mega fight between the heavyweight champions, but negotiations over the purse were holding up an agreed deal between the pair.
Usyk holds the WBO, WBA and IBF belts after beating Anthony Joshua and then successfully defending them in a rematch, and is now expected to face WBC champion Fury.
Fury on social media on Friday proposed a 70/30 purse split in his favour, telling his rival in a video: “From every day from today that you linger or mess around, I’ll deduct one percent from the 30 per cent.”
Usyk has remarkably accepted the offer, but with the caveat that Fury must donate £1m to Ukraine, and any delay over accepting will mean Fury must donate 1% of his purse to “the Ukrainian people”.
