Usyk is set to face Anthony Joshua in a rematch later this year after the Ukrainian defeated AJ in September to win the WBA, WBO and IBF world titles.

Despite reports suggesting that Joshua could step aside to allow Fury to fight Usyk in a unification bout - claims that the 32-year-old Brit denied - the Gypsy King has been mandated to defend his WBC title against Dillian Whyte.

Fury took to social media on Thursday to describe Joshua and his promoter Hearn as "the worst businessmen in history", claiming that they had turned down a lucrative offer worth $90m (£67m).
