Boxing:‘I am the winner’ – Tyson Fury accuses judges if showing war sympathy after losing to Usyk

British heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury has voiced his frustration over his split decision loss to Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk, insinuating that sympathy for Usyk’s war-torn country may have influenced the judges’ decision.

Usyk, who remains undefeated, made history by becoming the first undisputed world champion of the century in a closely fought match against Fury in Saudi Arabia.

After the judges announced Usyk as the winner, he dedicated his victory to the people of Ukraine, a country he had temporarily returned to following the Russian invasion earlier in the year.

Tyson Fury, visibly upset by the result, suggested that the ongoing conflict in Ukraine might have played a role in the judges’ decision.

“I believe I won that fight. He won a few rounds, but I won the majority of them,” Fury stated in the ring after the fight.

“We both put on a good fight. His country is at war, so people are siding with the country at war. Make no mistake, I won that fight in my opinion.”
