Tyson Fury vows to halt Oleksandr Usyk's plans for 'total domination'

Tyson Fury vows to halt Oleksandr Usyk's plans for 'total domination'

Tyson Fury is determined to stop Oleksandr Usyk from achieving "total domination".

The fighters will clash in the long-awaited heavyweight unification bout on February 17 and The Gypsy King has declared his plan to stop the Ukrainian ruling the division.

Fury told Sky Sports: "There's only me who stands in the way of him and total domination of Europe. He's beaten all of the British guys - Chisora, Joshua, Dubois - and there's only me.

"I'm the dauntless in his waters, let's just say that. They've got to pull out the long-range guns and we'll see.

"If he beats me, which he can't, there will be nothing that stands in his way of total domination. [He can't beat me] because I'm 'The Gypsy King' - that's enough."

Confirmation of Fury's clash with Usyk in Saudi Arabia comes in the same week as the announcement that Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder will fight on the same card next month in the Middle Eastern country - with the WBC world champion claiming he is responsible for creating the surge in activity.

Fury said: "It was only a month ago when it was a [bad] time to be a heavyweight and because of me all of these fights are happening. I'm like the promoter of the heavyweight division now.

"I'm promoting the whole heavyweight division. They're all working for me now, everybody - I've got them all under the 'Gypsy King' banner.

"Without me, they wouldn't be working on December 23, that's a fact. They're all good fights, every one of them. I know every one of them, I was involved in putting all of them on.

"I can't go too much into this on camera, but let's just say I was heavily involved."
