WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is open to the scenario of returning to the table to negotiate an undisputed fight with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO champion Oleksandr Usyk.
Fury is scheduled to face former UFC champion Francis Ngannou in a non-title bout on October 28 in Saudi Arabia.
Usyk saw action last month in Poland, where he knocked out WBA mandatory challenger Daniel Dubois in nine rounds.
In the early months of the year, Fury and Usyk were negotiating a potential April fight – but their discussions fell apart when they were unable to agree on the financial terms for the rematch.
“If Usyk is a good little boy, he might be an option but if he isn’t, he will just be another foreign middleweight that stays out in the cold,” Fury told Sky Sports.
“I will beat him, and I won’t even look for a body shot either. I will knock him out with a chin shot if that fight ever happens. If he is a good little boy and takes a small percentage of the superstar’s money then he will get a fight. If he wants big bucks. If he wants a seat at the king’s table then you’ve got to play ball with the master.”
Fury has issued a warning to Usyk, that he needs to lower his financial demands when they negotiate the terms for a second time.
Usyk is facing a potential mandatory order from the IBF to fight Filip Hrgovic.
“He can go and fight someone else for [hardly anything] again like he did against Dubois. If he fights Hrgovic, he will get [hardly anything] also and if he fights [Zhilei] Zhang he will get even less,” Fury said.
