Winner of the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO titles, Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk commented on the victory of WBC world champion Tyson Fury over Derek Chisora and announced his intention to fight the British in a unification bout.
What do I think about the Tyson fight? Nothing. It's very good sparring. I didn't say anything to Tyson after the fight. I looked into his crazy eyes. I really want the next fight to be with Fury. The whole world wants it. All the people want to see this fight. It's for the people. I'm going to fight for the title of undisputed champion. I think the IBF situation won't affect it.
