Tyson Fury Postpones Usyk Fight Due to Injuries Sustained in Ngannou Bout
Tyson Fury’s undisputed heavyweight title fight against Oleksandr Usyk, which was scheduled for December 23rd, has been postponed due to injuries Fury sustained in his fight against Francis Ngannou on October 28th.
This comes after Ngannou tweeted in September warning Fury that he wouldn’t be able to recover in time for his December fight.
“I don’t know what’s the minimum medical suspension in boxing but I really don’t understand how Tyson can fight in December after what’s going to happen on 10/28,” Ngannou wrote.
It is unclear at this time what the nature of Fury’s injuries are or how long he will be out of action. However, it is clear that they are serious enough to warrant the postponement of his fight against Usyk.
Fury’s Coach says he will need the time to rest.
The postponement of the fight is a disappointment for fans of both fighters, but it is important to remember that health comes first. Fury needs to take the time to recover fully from his injuries before returning to the ring.
