The usually respectful Ukrainian giant left his well mannered demeanour at the door when quizzed about the heavyweight boxers and is planning to move up to their division after his bout with Bellew on 10 November
Oleksandr Usyk wants to see Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury both get knocked out when they meet in the ring on December 1.
Ukraine’s undefeated, undisputed cruiserweight world champion faces Britain’s own Tony Bellew on 10 November in Manchester and his usually respectful attitude has been on display a lot in the build-up.
However, Usyk left his well-mannered demeanour at the door when quizzed about Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, insisting he is not an admirer of the way the latter pair conduct themselves.
Bellew’s opponent was initially asked for his opinions on Joshua and Wilder, and told Seconds Out: “I like Joshua better because he doesn’t speak that much.
“I actually don’t like boxers who talk too much.”
Oleksandr Usyk has previously declared his intention to move up to heavyweight after Saturday’s fight, and was in attendance to watch Joshua’s win over Alexander Povetkin in September.
Regarding Wilder and Fury, though, the 15-0 star has clearly not been impressed with the loud-mouthed antics on their recent press tour.
“I wish they both punch each other at the same time and fall down together,” Usyk stated.
“Anyway, it’s going to be a spectacular fight and I’m keen on watching it.”
