Tyson Fury Cries Out After Losing Heavyweight To Usyk

Britain heavyweight boxer, Tyson Fury, has spoken after his defeat to Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi Arabia.

Fury described his heavyweight title loss as one of the daftest decisions in boxing history.

He said at the ringside: “I believe he won a few of the rounds, but I won the majority.

“It was one of the daftest decisions in boxing. I’ll be back.”

Usyk defeated Fury following a split decision in a dramatic match.

Fury began well but was given a standing 10 count and saved by the bell after an Usyk onslaught in the ninth round.

The scorecards gave 115-112 and 114-113 decisions in favour of the Ukrainian, with a third judge scoring 114-113 to Fury.

Fury lost for the first time in a 16-year professional career.

He will get an immediate opportunity for revenge with a rematch planned for later this year.
