Now, in an interview with XSport.ua, Usyk has vowed not to “sit still and wait a year and a half for Joshua and Fury to fight” and even claimed he could fight for the UFC.

He said: “Recently Dana White wrote to me if I would like to try myself in the UFC. I replied, ‘Send an offer, I am ready.’

“So I have many options for what to do while waiting for the title fight. I do music, dance, recently discovered CrossFit, I bring up children.

“I’m not going to sit still and wait a year and a half for Joshua and Fury to fight. I’ll find someone to box with.”
