For Fury, 35, it marked his first defeat in a 16-year professional career. However, he remains undeterred, with plans for an immediate rematch later this year.

“I believe I won the majority of the rounds,” Fury asserted defiantly. “It was one of the most absurd decisions in boxing. I will return.”

Usyk’s triumph means he adds the WBC belt to his existing WBA, WBO, and IBF titles. At 37, he remains undefeated and holds the distinction of being the sport’s sole heavyweight world champion, a feat not achieved in nearly 25 years.

Expressing gratitude to his team and acknowledging the significance of the moment for himself, his family, and his country, Usyk affirmed his readiness for a rematch, stating, “Yes, of course. I am ready for a rematch.”
