The two unbeaten heavyweight champions, Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury will collide in the division’s first-ever four-belt unification on February 17, 2024 in Saudi Arabia.
Gypsy King and Usyk went nose-to-nose at the fight announcement press conference, where the British fighter tried barging the Ukrainian head first at the face-off. Fury has also repeatedly attempted to insult his 36-year-old rival by calling him a “rabbit.” However, that term seems to be one that has now been embraced by Usyk.
The Ukrainian undefeated boxer told Sky Sports: “I got into his head and now instead of me, he thinks about a rabbit. Keep thinking, brother. I have listened to Eminem for many years, his mum used to call him a white rabbit. I don’t know, I like this rapper. Tony Bellew once said that I am a beast in boxing, I said: ‘Not really, I’m just a white rabbit.’”
Usyk has also recently met Eminem in Saudi Arabia during the boxing match between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou. He expressed his desire to take a picture with the Detroit legend and he finally made it. Check the video below.
