At least somewhere they “could” agree.
Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury have little more in common than just their world heavyweight boxing titles. This became known after the Ukrainian named his favorite players.
Boxing fans are eager to see the undefeated Gypsy King in a unification fight with Usyk, who previously defeated Anthony Joshua twice to become world champion.
In September, Fury called his future opponent a “little pussy” after the Ukrainian said he would not be able to fight in December due to an injury. After the refusal of Usyk – the WBA, IBF, WBO and Ring Magazine champion – Fury fought for the third time with Derek Chisora and won again, this time by technical knockout.
At the end of 2022, it was reported that the Fury-Usyk fight was close to the official announcement of the date, but since then we have not found out when the long-awaited fight will take place.
And recently it turned out that Usyk and Fury have common interests outside of boxing. Speaking on his YouTube channel, Usyk, 35, revealed that Wayne Rooney is one of his favorite footballers, though not number one.
“My favorite Ukrainian footballer is Andriy Shevchenko,” Usyk said of the former AC Milan striker.
“As a child, I adored Gabriel Batistuta. Among English players, I admired Wayne Rooney. So my ultimate favorite is Batistuta.”
Fury is known to be a United fan and Rooney is openly supportive of the undefeated Manchester-born heavyweight.
So here two boxers could find a common language without the use of fists.
