Oleksandr Usyk’s wife has shared a brutal meme about Tyson Fury amid negotiations over a blockbuster undisputed showdown.
Fury and Usyk remain locked in talks over an undisputed heavyweight clash at Wembley Stadium in London on April 29.
It appears Fury vs. Usyk is edging closer ahead of an official announcement and as fight fans wait for confirmation, Usyk’s wife, Katerina, has got involved in the social media exchanges by sharing a ruthless meme online.
Image: via Instagram She’s posted a meme of her husband’s head on the body of a grim reaper knocking on a door, which has Fury’s face printed on it.
The door of Fury is preceded with open doors of Tony Bellew, Dereck Chisora and Anthony Joshua – opponents who have all succumbed to Usyk, implying Fury is next.
Of course, Usyk viciously stopped Bellew in their cruiserweight bout back in November 2018 and boasts wins over Chisora and Joshua (x2) following his move up to heavyweight.
She’s not the only member of Team Usyk taking a shot at the WBC title holder as the undefeated boxer’s manager, Alex Krassyuk, claimed his ‘credibility is shot to pieces’ over a reluctance to sign a deal.
“His credibility is shot to pieces. The man is trying to escape. I’m really sorry for Tyson’s fans. It’s a shame for a fighter to behave like that. It’s not about money and not about boxing. It’s about fear,” he said.
“He was not in training camp. We saw his theatrical performance – pretending jogging and pretending [sparring Joseph Parker]. He is not prepared, he is scared to fight. We don’t trust him, we don’t believe him.”
On Fury demanding no rematch clause, Krassyuk added: “When we started negotiations, Fury’s side were first to ask for the rematch clause and we supported this… I think whatever we accept from Fury, it will not leave us with a fight.”
