What Tyson Fury said to Oleksandr Usyk in the ring immediately after instant classic in Saudi Arabia

Oleksandr Usyk is now the undisputed heavyweight king after beating Tyson Fury.

Tyson Fury’s first words to Oleksandr Usyk after their fight have been revealed.

Ukrainian Usyk produced a brilliant display as he became the first undisputed heavyweight champion of the world since Lennox Lewis in 1999 after beating Fury via a split decision.

In front of a packed crowd inside the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the two fighters put on a show that will live long in the memory of boxing fans.

The two fighters were also watched ringside by big names such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Anthony Joshua, Neymar and Ryan Garcia.

On the back of the bout, a video was posted on social media which captured Fury and Usyk’s interaction inside the ring after the final round finished.

As shown in the video, Fury kissed Usyk on the head and appeared to brand his opponent as a ‘warrior’ before moving over to his team.

Expressing his delight after his win, Usyk said: “I feel good. A lot of people prayed for me, I love you. I'm very happy.

“My people will be very happy I think, it's a big win, not only for me, it's a big win for my country, for soldiers who now defend my country. I think my father now is watching over me and is very happy. Dad, I love you. I can, you told me I can.”

Meanwhile, Fury declared his intention to activate the rematch clause when speaking inside the ring: “I believe he won a few of the rounds, but I won the majority of them, and I believe it was one of those what-can-you-do, one of them... decisions in boxing.

“We both put on a good fight, best we can do. But make no mistake, I won that fight, in my opinion, and I'll be back. I've got a rematch clause.”

When asked about a potential rematch, Usyk said: “Yeah of course. I am ready for rematch.”
