Tyson Fury has expressed his belief that he was "ripped off" in his undisputed fight with Oleksandr Usyk.

Fury was outscored by Usyk, resulting in the loss of his heavyweight world title in Saudi Arabia last weekend. This marked the first defeat of his career, despite dominating the first half of the bout before losing the second.

In the immediate aftermath, Fury insisted that he felt he had won the fight and reiterated this view later. "Get up, boys. I was f***ing ripped off in there. I thought I won it by four or five rounds," he is seen saying in a video as he walks to his dressing room post-fight.

Fury has now agreed to a rematch with Usyk, scheduled to take place again in Riyadh in October. Initially uncertain about returning for the second leg, he has now activated his rematch clause.

His promoter, Frank Warren, is confident that Fury will reclaim his belt. "There will be a rematch and that will be confirmed and announced in due course," he said, reports the Mirror.

"I think it will be better than the original fight."

"They both know each other, they've shared the ring and they'll be looking to use what they've gained from the fight as an advantage to beat their opponent. Everyone out there thinks Usyk is the best out there so let's see what Tyson does. "He rang me and he said he wants the rematch so here we are. He's a fighting man, it's what he brings to the ring.

He's been caught a couple of times in his last couple of fights but he gets up and shows what he's made of. "".

In related news, Fury has been given a somewhat strange seven-day medical suspension following his bout with Usyk. Despite being left with a bruised face after the ninth round, Fury appeared to be in good health post-fight.

Usyk, who received a suspension until June 2, was taken to hospital for precautionary measures but was later discharged. Initial suggestions that the newly crowned undisputed world champion had sustained a broken jaw were dismissed.
