WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury made fun of Oleksandr Usyk on his social networks by replying to a video in which he called him “boy” in which the Ukrainian made running movements around the ring.
Tyson Fury mocks Usyk again
“Come here, Usyk, come here,” Tyson Fury wrote in one of his Instagram stories, “Come here, dwarf.” In the video, Fury runs from the little guy while constantly laughing and making fun of the size of the current unified WBA, IBF, and WBO heavyweight titlist.

It’s not the first time Fury has mocked Usyk and his size in the heavyweight division. In the past, the English boxer has dismissed him as a middleweight or light heavyweight who was lost in the division and had just had a lucky break.
Fury made his retirement official a few months ago after his win against Dillian Whyte, but then backed down and said he would return on December 3 to make another defense of his WBC belt.
Usyk, currently holding the other three divisional titles, was rumored to be unifying the belts with the Briton, but Fury later called him and his team a coward and accused them of not wanting the fight.
The Ukrainian responded with a message on networks where he was seen laughing at the words of ‘The Gypsy King’ and his threats. Oleksandr said that he will be out for a while after all the activity he had.
Usyk is coming off a successful title defense against Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia, while Fury knocked out Dillian Whyte at Wembley in their last fight.
Fury has been active in networks in recent weeks and has sent messages, both to the Ukrainian and to Anthony Joshua, in search of finally getting into the ring on December 3.
Although it is not yet known who his opponent will be, AJ seems to be all but ruled out after Eddie Hearn pointed out that they missed Fury’s deadline.
