Why Fury made Ukraine comment after Usyk fight — Warren 

Why Fury made Ukraine comment after Usyk fight — Warren 

Top boxing promoter Frank Warren has leapt to the defence of his client Tyson Fury following his comment after the defeat to Oleksandr Usyk in Riyadh over the weekend.

Warren sat ringside as Fury’s long undefeated run ended.

There are expectations that both men will fight in a rematch come October but for the bout in the Gulf, Warren has a reason for the unguided comment made by Fury after his loss.

“His country is at war, so people are siding with the country at war,” Fury said in the ring after suffering the first loss of his professional boxing career.

“I believe I won that fight, I believe he won a few of the rounds, but I won the majority of them. We both put on a good fight. His country is at war, so people are siding with the country at war.”

Fury has faced widespread criticism for his comment, but Warren passionately defended him during an appearance on Monday’s talkSPORT Breakfast Show.

The 72-year-old, who has been promoting Fury since 2018, reminded everyone that the British heavyweight has been battling bipolar disorder for years.

“I get quite angry. I’ve just got back and I’m reading some of the reports.” Warren said about the reaction to Fury’s post-fight interview.
