TYSON FURY has released an “important” video message following his defeat to Oleksandr Usyk.

Meanwhile, the split decision inflicted the first defeat of Fury’s professional career.

A rematch has since been confirmed and is scheduled for December 21 this year, but Fury – normally a loud and outgoing personality on social media – has remained silent since the fight.

Only excerpts from the press conference and a poster confirming the winter rematch were published on his Instagram page.

That was until Fury sent a “very important message” to promoter Frank Warren ahead of tonight’s 5v5 Queensberry showdown with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom.

However, always a fan of light-hearted humor, Fury said the message was so important he was doing it from his bed.

As he lay topless, he said, “Hey Tyson Fury, here.

“Very important message and it’s so important I did it from my damn room and my bed.

“Frank, Queensbury, all the boys on our team; do the business, crush Eddie Hearn, Matchroom and all the Matchroom fighters.

For all the love for a reborn AJ…these two are a head, shoulders, and fists ahead of everyone else.

OLEKSANDR USYK is the deserved undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, writes Wally Downes Jr.

A big gun doesn’t always beat a big little one, not when David carries the weight of a nation under siege on his shoulders and is capable of rocking every countryman with every punch.

Usyk did what Usyk does, he moved beautifully, he counterattacked and he outworked his taller, heavier opponent.

He somehow manages to use every physical disadvantage in his favor.

But what the hell is Fury doing getting up in the ninth round?

Why is a father of eight with £300million in the bank, three best-selling books and a Netflix series going to the well?

Britain is not fighting back against Putin’s army and Morecambe is not occupied.

So, when the 35-year-old’s senses are blurred, when the canvas calls him, when he is so desperate not to let it get him down, he is ready to bounce on all the ropes like a drunk, when he has to finally collapsing into a corner. , why doesn’t he stay in bed?

He has earned the right to surrender himself and his millions.

The courage, courage and bloody-mindedness it takes to walk off that bridge, with a broken nose and a crumbling ego, is not understandable to us mortals.

Fury said he felt he won the fight, but was too dignified to call it theft or corruption. There is no doubt that his father will taint that decency by the time you read this.

The revenge will be superb.

Because for all the love we have for a resurgent Anthony Joshua – who had a front row seat to this iconic event – ​​these two men at polar opposites have heads, shoulders, fists, hearts and brains ahead of everything the world.

There are the first two, then there is emptiness and then there is the rest.
