Alexander Krasyuk, promoter of mandatory contender for the WBO heavyweight title Alexander Usik, said why his ward recorded a video message to the promoter of the WBA / WBO / IBF champion Anthony Joshua Eddie Hearn, in which he asked to pay him more money.
“Usyk turned with a proposal to the promoter Joshua – he gave an opaque hint of how the negotiations on the battle should take place. In fact, the thing was completely unplanned – pure impromptu. I leave the store and see Alexander’s green Lexus parked.
They rubbed it for half an hour, and then I say: “San, let Edik write down a light message.” They wrote down, “Eddie, I want more money.” I sent Hirna, he smiled, got the hint. I say: “Sanya, let’s blow up the world – we’ll post it on Instagram.” They threw, and rushed – in 15 minutes all the British and American media reposted. For some reason, our media was the last to spread it.
This message gave a hype. We are doing a fight on the largest scale that can be in professional boxing. This is a three-belt heavyweight fight between two Olympic champions in London. The resonance is crazy.
Since the commercial part of this fight is pay-per-view, we have to promote it. The more mentions of this event in the global media, the more people will learn about it, “said Alexander Krasyuk in an interview with the Andrey Burenok about business YouTube channel.
