‘A good fight of two losers’ – Egis Klimas, Oleksandr Usyk’s manager, mocks Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua after Gypsy King claims an all-British fight could still take place


Oleksandr Usyk’s manager Egis Klimas has scoffed at Tyson Fury’s suggestion that he could fight Anthony Joshua next year instead of the Ukrainian.

Following Usyk’s win over AJ, he called for an unchallenged showdown with Fury.

Fury has had a lot to say about Usyk in recent weeks

The Gypsy King, however, insisted he wanted the fight in December and so accused his rival of “running away” for saying he wouldn’t return until 2023.

Usyk explained that he suffered a recurrence of old injuries against AJ and wants to spend time with his family, hence the delay.

In the meantime, Fury said he intends to have another fight this year regardless.

He even said that AJ could be a future opponent for him before Usyk.

Fury told BT Sport: “I still think, even though he’s lost three of his last five fights, I still think people would like to see that fight.

“So if Oleksandr Usyk can’t be ready and doesn’t want the fight for whatever reason – a middleweight against a giant heavyweight, I can understand why he doesn’t want it.

“If this fight doesn’t happen, then we’ll go offer the fight to AJ.”

Those comments quickly reached the Usyk camp, with manager Egis Klimas responding on social media.

Klimas tweeted in response, “After Oleksandr Usyk’s win over Tyson Fury, yeah I think it’s gonna be a good two losers fight to see who’s better.”

It didn’t take long for Fury to get back on Klimas.

He tweeted: “I will destroy Oleksandr Usyk #BumCity.

“The Little Man Syndrome. This man Egis Klimas is at **.

“If he can beat me, let’s go in December you tramps!!”
