Earlier, the director of the team of the Ukrainian champion, Sergei Lapin, made a statement – the contract for the fight scheduled for May 18 (in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) prudently included a clause on the possibility of replacing the British Tyson Fury against the Croatian Filip Hrgovic, if the “Gypsy King” again does not want to get into the ring with Alexander Usik, but, as it turned out, the Saudi organizers conceived an identical, but “financial incentive” for the contenders for the “absolute” title.

About the dissatisfaction expressed by the famous British boxer Tony Bellew regarding the imposition of fines of $10 million on either Usik or Fury, depending on the culprit for postponing the fight, NBN writes, citing YouTube -iFL TV channel.

According to Belew, the above proposal from the Saudis is a rather dubious decision, since none of the athletes are immune from injury during preparation for the decisive fight.

Compatriot Fury emphasized:

This will not benefit anyone, because both are at their peak [in form]. The only thing I'm worried about now is if it happens again. I know there is a fine and it's just crazy because nobody will be at fault if he [Fury] just gets cut again… I just don’t understand, but this is boxing, nothing ceases to amaze me in this crazy business.

We previously wrote about the fact that the American who sent Fury to the  knockdown, made an unexpected bet on the outcome of the fight between the Briton and the Ukrainian.
