World heavyweight champion according to WBO, WBA, IBO and IBF Alexander Usik reacted wittilyto a video from the training camp of WBC title holderTyson Furywho has resumed preparations for their fight after injury.

The day before, the Briton showed on social networks how he was preparing for a fight for all the heavyweight division titles.

Together with his coach, the “Gypsy King” practiced punches “on his paws.”

After that, Usik posted a video on his Instagram where he was jumping rope in the company of another Ukrainian boxer Dmitry Mitrofanov, and in the caption he trolled his future opponent.

“Your camp has just begun, mine has not ended,” – Usyk wrote ironically.

The Usyk-Fury fight will take place on May 18 in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia). The fight was scheduled for February 17, but due to an injury the Briton received during one of the sparrings, it had to be postponed.

To avoid another breakdown of the fight, the organizers established sanctions, which will be applied to Usik or Fury if one of them does not enter the ring on May 18. Boxersface a huge fineif they refuse to fight on the scheduled date.

The winner of the Usyk-Fury fight will become the first undisputed world champion in the heavyweight division in the 21st century.

The last “absolute” in the heavyweight division was Lennox Lewis, who achieved this status in 1999 when he defeated Evander Holyfield. Then the WBA, WBC and IBF titles were at stake. The WBO belt was recognized as equal in 2007, so the winner of the fight between Usyk and Fury will become the first ever “absolute” heavyweight with four major titles.
