Tyson Fury needs SURGERY after Derek Chisora ​​win with Oleksandr Usyk fight in question


yson Fury has admitted he will likely need elbow surgery following his win over Derek Chisora, throwing a proposed undisputed clash with Oleksandr Usyk into further uncertainty.

Fury successfully defended his WBC heavyweight title once again with another dominant stoppage victory over his old rival on Saturday night, with unified WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO champion Usyk present at ringside at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to watch the main event.

Afterwards, the pair engaged in a heated confrontation, Usyk keeping his composure admirably as Fury rained down insult-laden insults and threatened to destroy the Ukrainian, who remained silent before being joined on the ring apron by WBO interim champion Joe Joyce. .

It was said in the build-up to Fury’s third win over Chisora ​​that a deal for the self-proclaimed “Gypsy King” and Usyk to fight – likely in Saudi Arabia – in a bid to crown the first undisputed heavyweight champion heavy since Lennox Lewis was close to being finalized for late February or early March.

However, that timeline now looks impossible, with Fury admitting to ESPN that he suffered from an elbow problem and will likely need surgery which will require a subsequent layoff of up to two months.

“I may need surgery on my right elbow,” he said after suffering a hard stoppage from Chisora ​​in round 10 in north London.

“I had the one on the left done, so I have to do it. It will take about six to eight weeks to heal. We will see when we can be ready for this fight.

Asked about the injury again by BT Sport, Fury added: “I’ve had it for a while. I have like elbow spurs and stuff that I have to adjust on my right arm. When that’s done, we can continue the fight.
