Tyson Fury believes he should have gotten his hand raised on Saturday against Oleksandr Usyk.

Fury and Usyk were fighting for the unified heavyweight title in a highly-anticipated bout. Early on, Fury was having success as he looked to be taking over in the fight. However, in the ninth round, Usyk dropped Fury and after that, Usyk began to take over.

When the final bell rang, it was Usyk who edged out a split decision to become a unified heavyweight champion. But, Fury believes he did enough to get his hand raised.

“I believe I won the fight, but I’m not going to sit here and cry and make excuses,” said Fury, via ESPN. “I believe he won a few of the rounds, but I won the majority of them. What can you do? We both put on a good fight, the best we could do. … People are siding with the country at war. But make no mistake, I won that fight … and I’ll be back. We’ve got a rematch clause.”

As Tyson Fury says, he does have a rematch clause which will likely happen as the fight will be massive. But, for Usyk, he is just excited for the win as he says it is massive for him and his country.

“It’s [a] big opportunity for me, for my family, for my country, for history,” said Usyk. “It’s [a] great day.”

When a rematch will happen is uncertain, but Usyk is now the unified heavyweight champion of the world while Fury suffered his first loss of his legendary career.
