Tyson Fury sent brutal warning by Oleksandr Usyk and told to VACATE world title belts if rematch clause can't be agreed | The Sun

OLEKSANDR USYK has urged Tyson Fury to defend or vacate his WBC strap if he's not serious about fighting for the undisputed heavyweight crown.

The pair looked set to throw down in a historic undisputed bout in April after finally settling their squabble over purse splits.

But Fury threw another spanner into the works on Monday when he called for their dust-up to be a one-affair with no rematch clause.

Usyk, 36, has grown tired of the Brit's moving of the goalposts and has urged him to put up or shut up.

The undefeated Ukranian took to Instagram to say: "Greedy belly.

"Rematch clause came from your side, not mine.

Promoter Alexander Krassuyk told talkSPORT: “As Usyk said, the greedy belly is still hoping to find a way to pull out.

“He was not in a training camp and we say the next morning the theatrical performance that he was pretending to jog and fight someone in the ring.

“It’s all about nothing. He’s not prepared and scared to fight.

"He will try to find a way to avoid Usyk for as long as possible.

“We don’t trust him, we don’t believe him.
