John Fury sustained a bloody head wound after reportedly headbutting a member of Oleksandr Usyk's team.
John Fury suffered a bleeding head injury following a physical altercation that erupted after a heated exchange at his son Tyson Fury’s press conference.
The incident occurred before the upcoming heavyweight unification title bout between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk. The 59-year-old was injured during a confrontation with a member of Usyk’s team.
Tensions were already high when Fury Sr. was struck, following an intense verbal clash on stage between his son, the Gypsy King, and Usyk's promoter, Alex Krassyuk.
In a video from IFL TV, Fury Sr. can be seen apparently initiating a headbutt against a member of Usyk's team.
A different view from Nikolay Tkachenko's Instagram captures Fury Sr. confronting a man in a flat cap, as the two are separated amidst chants.
"We ain't going nowhere, we don't go nowhere!" Fury Sr. is heard shouting.
The upcoming May 18 bout in Saudi Arabia features the undefeated heavyweight champions Fury and Usyk clashing in the ring.
Their original fight date of February 17 was postponed after the Gypsy King sustained a severe cut during a sparring session.
At 35, Fury seems to be in peak condition, spurred into action by his close victory over former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou.
Ngannou managed to knock Fury down in the fifth round, but Fury ultimately secured a win by split decision.
The victor of Saturday's clash will be the first person since Lennox Lewis in 1999 to claim all four heavyweight titles.
Yet, Fury has confessed that his drive isn’t the titles but financial gain. “Look, this is an important fight,” Fury disclosed to The Telegraph, “but again... I hate to say it, because the boxing fans and the boxing purists and all them ...... don’t want to hear it, but why do you think I box? For the money.
“If anybody in this building, or anybody in professional boxing, tells me they don’t do this game for money, they’re lying to you, and I speak from the heart. I do it for the dough. The bigger the deal, the better. I’m a prize-fighting pugilist specialist, that’s what I do."
