Rant by Tyson Fury: Judges’ Verdict in Usyk Fight Biased due to War Sympathy

Tyson Fury, the British heavyweight boxer, expressed his disappointment with the split decision loss to Oleksandr Usyk, hinting that the judges were influenced by sympathy for Usyk’s war-torn Ukraine.

Usyk, the undefeated Ukrainian, made history by becoming the first undisputed world champion of the century after a closely contested match against Fury in Saudi Arabia over the weekend.

After the judges’ decision in Riyadh, Usyk dedicated his victory to the people of Ukraine, having briefly returned to his country following the Russian invasion earlier this year before getting back to his boxing career.

Fury, visibly disheartened, suggested that the conflict in Ukraine might have swayed the judges’ opinions.

Following the fight, Fury declared in the ring, “I am convinced that I emerged victorious in that bout. While he may have won a few rounds, I believe I dominated the majority of them.”

He further added, “Both of us displayed a strong performance. However, because his nation is currently at war, it appears that people are favoring the side of the war-stricken country. Let me be clear, in my perspective, I won that fight.”
