Fury, Usyk weigh in, set for blockbuster bout

Heavyweight rivals Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk on Friday weighed in ahead of heavyweight clash in Saudi Arabia.

Fury refused to look Usyk in the eye as the two world champions came head to head before Saturday’s undisputed heavyweight title fight.

The winner will be crowned the division’s first undisputed champion in the four-belt era and arguably the greatest heavyweight of a generation.

But the two champions exchanged very few words in a pre-fight news conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Fury, a showman whose antics at such events have created many headlines over the years said he would keep it short and sweet and stuck to his words.

Usyk also did not want to engage in any pre-fight trash talk. “Let’s make history. Enough,” he said.

When the two came to the front of the stage for an obligatory face-off, Usyk stood sideways but Fury instead opted to face the crowd front on.

The Gypsy King placed his trilby hat on a member of security, sang along to the music, flexed his muscles and left the stage.
