Former heavyweight world champion Vitali Klitschko has commented on the negotiations for the unified heavyweight title fight between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury.

Klitschko to Zuma Press: “It is very likely that the fight will take place. If Fury refuses to face Usyk, he will be the biggest coward in the boxing world. He knows Usyk is a very uncomfortable opponent for him, and now Fury will try to find an opportunity to find a way out of this difficult situation”, Klitschko said, adding: “But the whole world wants to see this fight. I am sure this fight will take place.”

The former world champion further elaborated: “I cannot make any prediction for the fight. This is the heavyweight division where one single punch can decide the outcome of a fight. We keep our fingers crossed that Oleksandr Usyk wins. I am confident that Usyk has all the chances to win, and become the undisputed champion, win all the titles and take over the last WBC belt from Tyson Fury.”
