‘Disgrace’ Tyson Fury enrages fans as ‘pathetic’ antics end hopes of Usyk clash

Frustrated boxing fans are lashing out at Tyson Fury on social media following reports that his upcoming clash with Oleksandr Usyk is off.

The two heavyweights were set to lock horns in a title unification bout for the ages at Wembley next month, though whispers from within both camps now claim that talks between the pair have collapsed.

Many were initially sceptical about Fury's desire for the fight after he demanded a 70-30 split of the purse, and further doubts have now been cast after Usyk's manager Egis Klimas claimed Fury's camp have asked for even more.

"No matter how much Usyk compromised, he was pushed for more," Klimas revealed on Wednesday, adding that he gave Fury's team a take-it-or-leave-it offer, which, if true, appears to have been rejected.

In response, fans took aim at the Gypsy King, with one user tweeting: "Fury is an absolute disgrace! But he'll come out with a few 'dossers' and 'get up my boy' shouts on Instagram and his supporters will cream their pants like they always do. Pathetic so called champion."

Another wrote: "Normal service resumed. Too good to be true. Unfortunately, the heavyweight division has been made a laughing stock with out of ring demands and diva like requests."

A third said the saga summed up everything wrong with the sport, writing: "This is why boxing is becoming a joke and full of YouTubers and social celebs. The ones at the top aren’t willing to each other! If and when they ever do they’re only fighting once every 9-10 months. Absolute joke of a sport."

Last week, the Gypsy King insisted that the bout was definitely on, and even confirmed that he'd had entered a social media blackout ahead of the clash, but fans are now convinced he never actually meant it.

"Usyk agreed to 30% we all know who really wanted the fight!! Even Fury trainer said yesterday 6 weeks isn't enough to fight Usyk," one user tweeted. "I think they were trying to mess around with ring size and the date and enough was enough after 3 months of Fury's antics."

According to ESPN, Fury's promoter Frank Warren is hopeful that a deal can be resurrected in the next 24 hours, but this latest bump in the road could prove fatal after such lengthy negotiations.

WBA president Gilberto Mendoza previously set a deadline of April 1 for the fight to be made so the teams still have time to thrash out a deal.
