In a dramatic battle for the undisputed world heavyweight title, Tyson Fury suffered his first professional defeat against Oleksandr Usyk. The split decision in favor of Usyk left Fury voicing his dismay, convinced that he had done enough to secure victory.

The fight took place in Saudi Arabia, where Usyk, already holding the WBA, IBF, and WBO belts, added Fury’s WBC title to his collection. The judges scored the bout 115-112, 113-114, and 114-113 in favor of Usyk, sealing the split decision win. However, Fury maintained that he had won the majority of the rounds, even after Usyk dominated the closing stages.

“I believe I won that fight. I think he won a few of those rounds but I won the majority of them,” Fury said.

“His country is at war, so people are siding with the country at war. Make no mistake, I won that fight in my opinion. I’ve had a split decision loss with a little man. Good luck and God bless you.”

“I want to thank God. We fought a good fight for the fans. I always say it’s about getting paid and getting laid and we did that.

“I want to thank Oleksandr for the good fight. It was a close fight. I thought I’d done enough, but I’m not a judge. I can’t judge a fight while I’m boxing in it.”

 Tyson Fury Calls for an Immediate Rematch

Despite the setback, Tyson Fury called for an immediate rematch, aiming to reclaim his title. Promoter Frank Warren confirmed that the contract included an “immediate rematch” clause, setting the stage for a potential showdown in October.

Usyk, now the undisputed champion at both cruiserweight and heavyweight, expressed readiness for the rematch. “Yeah, of course. I am ready for a rematch,” said the Ukrainian fighter. Fury, too, remains determined to prove his mettle and regain the title he believes should rightfully be his.

As the boxing world eagerly awaits the rematch, fans can expect another thrilling clash between these two formidable heavyweights. Whether Tyson Fury can turn the tables or Usyk will solidify his status as the undisputed champion remains to be seen. One thing is certain: the boxing world will be watching closely as these warriors step into the ring once again.
