Oleksandr Usyk proclaims ‘all enemies of Ukraine must be destroyed’ and ‘unfortunately for Daniel Dubois‘ that has to include him when they fight for the world heavyweight title next month.

Frank Warren is backing his London challenger ‘to clear this ridiculous log-jam in the heavyweight division by knocking out Usyk’ in a stadium packed with Ukrainians near the Polish border with his war-torn homeland on August 26.

Warren blames the stupor induced by the failure of the world’s giant pugilists to settle which of them becomes the first undisputed world champion for a decade on ‘the refusal of Usyk and Anthony Joshua to risk fighting Tyson Fury.’

Usyk smiles and insists that the ‘Gypsy King’ is the fight he really, really wants, saying ‘Fury is beautiful. He’s funny. I just want us to be in the same ring together I need him. Not only to add his WBC belt to my three titles but because in 30 to 40 years boxing must look back and know that I beat him in the biggest fight of our time.’

The mega-millions plans for the ultimate double header of Fury v Usyk and Joshua v Deontay Wilder in Saudi Arabia have drifted through the sands of time into maybe next year.

Leaving the principals to make these alternative arrangements: Usyk v Dubois; Joshua v Dillian Whyte; Fury v former UFC champion Francis Ngannou in a crossover fight.

Ho hum.

Warren defends the latter against a public outcry of dismay, saying: ‘Tyson could not just sit around until sometime next year after Usyk and Joshua refused all our offers but never made a single offer themselves.

‘If they want to claim otherwise I will put a million pound bet on the table this minute that they cannot produce a single document to prove it.

‘And by the way, while everyone else may see it as the upset of the century when big Daniel blows away little Olexsandr, it won’t come as a surprise to me’

Usyk, asked in the quintessentially British surroundings of London’s historic Cafe Royal if Dubois might prove more dangerous than Joshua, who he has beaten twice, replied ‘ I respect that Daniel has earned the right to this fight by becoming mandatory challenger for one of my belts.

‘But isn’t AJ a former Olympic champion and twice a two-time world champion?’

To which Dubois said of the 36-year–old former undisputed cruiserweight champion: ‘I’m younger, bigger and stronger than this old man. I was born for this moment. ‘

Enough said. But by which one?

Usyk v Dubois will be televised live on TNT Sports pay-per-view on August 26
