There’s nothing quite like a Tyson Fury fight week.

The biggest heavyweight fight in recent history goes down this Saturday from Saudi Arabia as both Fury and his opponent Oleksandr Usyk put their titles and undefeated records on the line. Fury was originally slated to face Usyk earlier this year in February, but withdrew due to a cut over his eye that he sustained in sparring.

Fury Unleashes His Wrath On Team Usyk

Speaking of bloody cuts, his father John Fury started off fight week with one of his own as the 59 year-old ran into Usyk’s opposing team, who chanted the boxer’s name in unison. Up close and personal, the riled up Fury head butted one of Usyk’s team members with blood trickling down his face as he was separated.

“I Don’t Wanna Bring Him Down… I Wanna Pump Him Up,” Fury On Usyk

Tensions run high between their teams but things have cooled down between Fury and Usyk ahead of their rescheduled matchup. Fury has toned down his usual trash talk, turning his sole focus to beating the unbeatable Usyk, which on paper, looks to be the toughest matchup of his all-time great career.

“I’ve called him all the sausages, gap tooth, ugly bastard, rabbit, ain’t I? I don’t know how much more I can insult a man,” Fury told IFL TV. “But, at end of the day, I don’t wanna bring him down. I wanna pump him up. This is the best man I’ve ever fought or probably even likely to face. I fought many world champions before, but I never fought two-time, two-weight world champion before, and an Olympic gold medalist. So, building him up. Think he’s a top lad, top g, toughest man I’ve ever, probably likely to face, and beating him will put me at #1 in the world industry.

“History will be made Saturday night.”

Fury Laser-Focused On Making It To Usyk Fight, Nothing Else Matters

Win, lose or draw, Fury’s story with Usyk doesn’t end this weekend in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The two boxers have already agreed to a rematch clause and for “The Gypsy King”, fighting Usyk again isn’t a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.

“There’s been a contract signed, so it can’t be seen any other way. That’s it… They can suck a dick for all I care,” Fury said of speculation surrounding another alternative. “Not interested in what people speculate. Only interested in Saturday night. Nothing else matters to me. What happens on Sunday morning, it’s a different day.

“I’m approaching [the Usyk fight] very different– everything. Just a different [approach]. It’s a much higher level opponent, best man I’ve ever fought. So, treading on eggshells all week, making sure I don’t injure myself or get caught or even cut myself again. That’d be a good one, won’t it? One day before, cuts his own eye with a knife.

“Remember, I’m never in there until I’m in there,” Fury joked about his fight withdrawal from February.

Knocking on wood for Tyson Fury’s sake, we await his heavyweight title clash with Oleksandr Usyk this Saturday, live on pay-per-view.
