Oleksandr Usyk team member spotted ‘spitting in everyone’s faces’ in bizarre moment after world heavyweight title triumph over Tyson Fury

Footage has emerged of a bizarre moment where a member of Oleksandr Usyk’s was claimed to be ‘spitting in everyone’s faces’ after the Ukrainian’s victory over Tyson Fury.

Usyk became the undisputed world heavyweight champion on Saturday night after a split decision victory over Fury in Saudi Arabia.

The Ukrainian fighter was awarded the contest by two judges after the 12-round fight, while the other scored the clash in favor of Fury.

A video has emerged of a member of Usyk’s team appear to spray water over the boxer in the ring post fight, while the defeated Fury gave his post fight interview.

The team member had appeared to have taken a drink of water before spraying it in the direction of the heavyweight champion.

The Gypsy King sensationally claimed that Usyk was awarded split-decision victory in their world heavyweight title fight ‘because his country is at war’.

‘I believe I won that fight,’ he said. ‘And I believe he won a few of the rounds, but I won the majority of them.’

He added: ‘I believe we both put on a good fight – best we could do. And, you know, his country is at war. People are siding with the country at war.’

Usyk gave an emotional comment to the broadcaster in the ring following his victory.

‘Dad, do you hear me? We did it!’ he said in Ukrainian, according to journalist Ine Back Iversen.

Usyk’s father passed away shortly after his son won Olympic gold in London in 2012.

‘Thank you so much my team, my God, Jesus. Mr Excellency, thank you this is a big opportunity for me, for my family. Slava Ukraini,’ Usyk added.

‘It’s great. I don’t have words. Of course, I’m ready. One more time we will do a good fight.’

Usyk was forced to miss the post-fight press conference to have his injuries attended to, amid suggestions he had broken his jaw during his historic victory.

He broke down in tears when remembering his father when he eventually gave his post-fight press conference.

‘I miss my father and I said to him “you live there and I live here, please don’t come for me, I love you”,’ Usyk said.

‘For me it is hard when my father comes back to me because I remember all life. I know he is here, maybe sitting out there.’

He added: ‘My camp started in September 2023, I worked for nine months.

‘I missed Happy New Year, I missed my son’s birthday, I missed my other son’s birthday, I missed my daughter’s birthday and then the birth of my daughter.

‘I also missed family holidays. I was only focused on this fight, now I’m happy and I want to go back home.’
