On the 17th of May, in Saudi Arabia, Oleksandr Usyk ascended to the pinnacle of the world, clinching the title of undisputed champion by besting Tyson Fury.

In an interview with 3 Knockdown Rule, the Ukrainian pugilist shared his reflections on his British adversary. He expressed profound respect for Fury, yet asserted his focus lies elsewhere. Furthermore, Usyk delineated the primary disparity between them.

"I cannot say, but Tyson Fury is not at the forefront of my thoughts. Listen, I hold Tyson Fury in high regard because he is an excellent pugilist, a fine gentleman, but he is my adversary. He poses a formidable challenge, a man of great intellect. What does Tyson do? 'Blah blah blah'? A profusion of words. Like a clown. And that sets us apart," elucidated Oleksandr.

Moreover, Oleksandr Usyk divulged his potential aspirations for the future. The Ukrainian boxer disclosed contemplating a return to the cruiserweight division, aiming once more to claim the mantle of undisputed champion.

Additionally, it’s worth noting that the IBF has confirmed that Daniel Dubois is now the mandatory challenger for Usyk's IBF world title, following the British boxer's triumph over Filip Hrgovic.
