Watch Oleksandr Usyk fire title warning to Tyson Fury and claim he’ll fight Anthony Joshua ‘in space’ to land rematch

OLEKSANDR USYK has his sights set on the undisputed heavyweight title as he fired a warning shot in Tyson Fury’s direction.

And the new champ claimed he would face Anthony Joshua ‘in space’ if he had to in order to make a rematch happen.

Usyk sensationally defeated Joshua via a unanimous decision on Saturday night at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

He took AJ’s WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO titles and left the Brit immediately seeking a rematch.

When asked by iFL TV if he wanted to face WBC-holder Fury for the undisputed title, Usyk said simply: “Of course.

“And I’ll fight (Anthony Joshua) even in space.”

Pundits and former pros have queued up to criticise Joshua’s tactics as he attempted to match Usyk’s silky skills rather than seek a knock-out.

AJ himself claimed going 12 rounds with the Ukrainian set him in good stead to win a rematch, but Usyk said he still had a few tricks up his sleeve.


Asked if he thought Joshua could change his styles, Usyk replied cryptically: “I can fight differently myself.”

The Joshua camp is already eyeing next February or March as a potential rematch date, with promoter Eddie Hearn saying he wants it in the UK.

But as the new champ Usyk now holds all the aces and does not appear to be in a rush to get back in the ring.

He added: “Why should I be unhappy? We have a victory. We went through hell training so now we need to relax.”
