Frank Warren defends Tyson Fury's legitimacy amidst injury speculation

Posted : 06 February 2024

Promoter Frank Warren has staunchly defended Tyson Fury's legitimacy amid questions about the British boxer's eye injury, emphasizing that Fury had been training rigorously for his scheduled bout against Oleksandr Usyk on 17 February.


The heavyweight clash, set to determine the undisputed champion, was postponed due to Fury sustaining a cut during sparring. The rescheduled fight is now slated for 18 May in Saudi Arabia, with Warren dismissing skepticism about Fury's injury as "ridiculous" and condemning the "libellous and scandalous" nature of the speculation.


Warren expressed incredulity at those questioning Fury's injury, asserting that the fighter is keen on the match and criticizing the negative narrative surrounding him. The promoter, speaking on the 5 Live Boxing podcast, likened the situation to a "cult against him."


Fury, the WBC champion, is set to face Usyk, the holder of the WBA, WBO, and IBF titles, in a historic bout to determine the undisputed heavyweight champion in the four-belt era.


Fury's eye injury, requiring urgent medical attention and significant stitching, marks the third rescheduling of a fight date between Usyk and Fury since 2023. Despite the setback, Saudi Arabian organizers and Team Fury swiftly secured a new date, emphasizing the historic significance of the matchup.


Warren revealed that Fury, who had been training in Saudi Arabia, will return to the United Kingdom for rehabilitation, acknowledging the necessity for winding down and meticulous preparation to ensure he is at his best for the rescheduled bout on 18 May.
