Alexander Krasyuk, promoter of mandatory contender for the WBO heavyweight title Alexander Usik, admitted that financially, in negotiations with WBA / WBO / IBF champion Anthony Joshua, his ward found himself in the same conditions that Joe Joyce had previously refused to agree with.
“Our American lawyers wrote long canvases of letters to the WBO lawyers, argued the whole case, and in the end, about a month ago, we received a document that the official distribution of the fee in the fight Alexander Usyk – Joe Joyce would be 80 to 20. Well done, they did their job …
But Joyce’s side did not agree with this decision, and the British lawyers are appealing to the Complaints Committee. We had a hearing scheduled, then postponed, and then news came out that the Joshua-Fury fight would not take place for the reason that the American arbitration court ruled that Tyson should fight another boxer, with whom he signed a three-fight contract, but spent only two.
This big fight is breaking down and we have to fight Joshua. And now we are in the opposite position, when 80 to 20, but not in our favor, “- said Alexander Krasyuk in an interview with the” Andrey Burenok about business “YouTube channel.
