What has been said ahead of the fight?

Just under a week before the fight, Fury said [via Sky Sports]: "It's not personal. It's strictly business for both fighters. There's a lot of stuff on the line, but I don't hate him. I respect him as a man, as a fighter. Anyone would have to respect the man's achievements. He's unified heavyweight champion, undisputed cruiserweight champion.

"I'm the best. I'm just defending my 'best-ness' against him. We have weight divisions for a reason. When the cruiserweights step up to the big boys, usually they get found wanting. You can beat the average big ones, but you can't beat the elite big ones because size really matters. These are facts."

Meanwhile, Usyk’s promoter, Alex Krassyuk, had this to say: “It's the fight of a lifetime. The whole world is waiting for it. Let's pray for Tyson and expect that the guy enters the ring.

"I can tell you about the secret weapon of Usyk's, the only problem is it's not a secret. His weapon is his mind, his heart, his experience and boxing skills. And the main thing about him that is different from Tyson Fury is his discipline. That is what makes him great and it is his toughest weapon."
