“I’ve always found that all the way through, generations, history of boxing, all the massive fights have always been in the USA,” stated Tyson Fury. “So that’s what I did, I came over to crack the United States. And if everything would have been fair I would have been going home with the WBC belt. But no harm done, still the lineal champion, still unbeaten. We move on.”
