While the news disheartened fans all over the world, the fighters themselves were probably more disappointed. Tyson Fury expressed his frustrations about the injury and announced his intent to continue with the fight. However, it was reported that Usyk was smiling when he first heard the news about Fury’s injury. In an interview with Boxing King Media, Usyk spoke about his reaction to the news and his exact thoughts. As such, Usyk stated:

I came back home, and I thought that I would see my daughter earlier than I expected. I feel okay; I am not upset.

In addition, Usyk missed the birth of his daughter because he was away at camp in preparation to fight Fury. Since then, Usyk finally got to see her before. It was a huge relief for him, and he did become too upset about the postponement of the fight.

Some would say it was a blessing in disguise for Usyk because he finally saw his newborn child. As such, Usyk stated that he was not worried and that whatever’s written in the future would come to pass. Hence, Usyk’s calmness in the face of his biggest fight being put on hold is unbelievable.

Similarly, Usyk’s promoter also publicly stated this, and it caused Fury to lash out at him during a virtual interview. In the interview with Boxing King Media, Usyk spoke about Fury’s injury and his thoughts on Fury. Hence, Fury stated that a punch and not an elbow caused the cut, but it is difficult to confirm that.

In addition, the interviewer brought up Usyk’s promoter’s comments and asked Usyk if he thinks Fury is scared to fight. After this, Usyk responded, stating that he didn’t know if Fury wanted to fight him or not, but he stated that Fury was scared for sure.
