Fury was present as fight week gets underway

John Fury has been injured in an alleged brawl with a member of Oleksandr Usyk’s team.

Usyk is set to fight his son Tyson in Saudi Arabia this week in one of the most anticipated heavyweight fights of all time, with the winner becoming the first man since Lennox Lewis in 1999 to hold all four heavyweight titles. 

However, one day into fight week and chaos has already ensued following the alleged altercation.

Reports from the media day claimed that Fury went head-to-head with someone from Usyk’s team, before the Gypsy King’s father was left with a bloodied face after allegedly attempting to head-butt another person. 

Other clips show John squaring up to another individual while Usyk’s team chanted his name.

He then appeared to mimic the chant back, shouting Tyson’s name before he was pulled away by security.

After that he allegedly shouted: “We ain’t going nowhere, we don’t go nowhere!”
