Tyson Fury absolutely at fault for failure to make fight with Oleksandr Usyk for undisputed heavywei

Since their fight on December 17, Tyson Fury and Derek Chisora have been on the rise. We had anticipated the happy announcement that Fury would next face Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight title after round 3 of, let's be honest, an utterly pointless fight for the heavyweight title. But as is common in boxing, it's not happening. The sport's decline over the past few decades has been attributed to its inability to deliver the biggest fights that fans demand on a regular basis. The 6-foot-9 WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, is entirely to blame for this one, and he bears the blame on his broad shoulders. Usyk has won two fights against Anthony Joshua, a rival of Fury's, and he also holds the WBA, WBO, and IBF belts. He also complied with all of Fury's demands, no matter how absurd, in an effort to make the fight for the undisputed belt.
Usyk accepted the smaller portion of a 70-30 revenue split; that's practically unheard of; how much more serious could he have shown himself to be? Observe Muhammad Ali in the year 1971,who, throughout his career, was 100 times more well-liked and well-known than Fury will ever be, consented to a 50/50 split to challenge Joe Frazier in New York on March 8, 1971, that fight is still considered to be the most famous in boxing history, but it never would have taken place if Ali had not made outrageous demands for money.

The fight between Fury and Usyk was scheduled for April 29, but potential sponsors in Saudi Arabia, who are constructing a brand-new cutting-edge arena, couldn't support that date. For the Saudis, late fall was the ideal time period.Thus, with the Saudis unable to provide funding for the fight, Fury's native England would have been the only option for the venue. Even with the middle of the afternoon start time, the fight would undoubtedly have been a huge success in that boxing-crazy nation. If the fight had taken place in Las Vegas, New York, Los Angeles, or Arlington, Texas, the United States would have been guaranteed pay-per-view sales, but they would not have been nearly as lucrative. owing to his relationship with reputed mobster Daniel Kinahan.

Usyk also asked Fury for a 70–30 split of the purse. He coveted the duel. Money is obviously crucial in this situation, so the fighters must get the largest cut possible. One never knows when the next fight will be the last in this dangerous sport. Therefore, fighters must be compensated. It is also a sport, though, at the same time. The essence of sports at the highest level is bringing the best people together. In the current NCAA men's basketball tournament, we are witnessing it. The World Cup in soccer is therefore so eagerly awaited. Because of this, the NFL Super Bowl's owners are given free rein to spend whatever they want. It's how DeShaun Watson of Cleveland received a guaranteed $230 million after a career in which he had never won a Super Bowl and was 1-2 in the playoffs. No prominent celebrity has ever requested such absurd amounts as the 70-30 revenue split Fury wanted in a megafight comparable to the potential Fury-Usyk match.

At a 70-30 split, Fury would have earned $105 million compared to Usyk's $45 million if the net revenues going to the fighters were $150 million, which is highly likely. For both of them, that sum will drastically alter their lives. The 55-45 split in Fury's favor, which would have given him $82.5 million and Usyk $670.5 million, would have undoubtedly changed both of their lives.In light of the likelihood of a rematch, both fighters would have made much, much more money than the estimated $150 million in net revenue. But after a disagreement over the percentage splits in a rematch, the fight that boxing desperately needed, the fight that fans yearned to see, and the fight that would have made absurd sums of money all fell apart. Fury may fight Joe Joyce in the near future, but who will really care about that? Fury's ardent English supporters will care, but do you really think that fight will capture the attention of fight fans in the U. S. It won't, without a doubt, and in other parts of the world.

The pay structure is one of the reasons boxing is struggling right now. Given that Floyd Mayweather generated revenue, it was acceptable to guarantee him $100 million and give him significant upside. Because they performed the same, the same is/was true of Mike Tyson, Manny Pacquiao, Canelo Alvarez, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis, Oscar De La Hoya, and others. But there are currently fighters asking for seven- and eight-figure purses who are unable to sell a ticket or a pay-per-view. Due to this, fights like the one between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence for the vacant welterweight title, as well as Fury-Usyk, appear to be in jeopardy. Only boxing, a major sport, permits its most important matches to be ruined by commercial disputes. Knowing where to place the blame is frequently difficult. But this is simple. Tyson Luke Fury is solely responsible if the undisputed heavyweight championship match is not held this year.
