John Fury left with blood streaming down face from nasty head injury after fight with Usyk's camp

Tyson Fury is set to face Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday

John Fury has been left with blood streaming down his face from a nasty head injury after a fight with Oleksandr Usyk's camp.

This comes just days before Tyson Fury finally faces Usyk in a fight set to crown the first heavyweight champion to hold all four major belts since 1999.

The actual fight between Fury and Usyk was supposed to take place back in February but was pushed back after the Brit was injured in sparring.

It's now set for this Saturday (18 May) at 11pm UK time, at Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

But the Gypsy King's dad, known for getting a bit rowdy every now and again, has already clashed with the opponent's team.




With media day taking place today, shouting could be heard between the two teams and various videos captures a member of Team Usyk going face-to-face with John.

And then, with the chanting of 'Fury' and 'Usyk' coming from either side, it seems the boxer dad has landed a headbutt on one of the Ukrainian's team.



John didn't get off lightly though, as photos and footage shows him with blood pouring down from his forehead.

The former professional boxer and bare-knuckle fighter could then be heard saying to Usyk's team: "We ain't going nowhere, we don't go nowhere!"

Security got involved to keep the two camps apart as The Mirror, who were on the scene, added that John lashed out at Usyk's promoter, Alex Krassyuk: "We can't be beaten, anywhere we go. We are spartans, let's f***kng go.

"Yous will get it, I live for this s**t. Blood, guts and horror. I live for this s**t."

The pre-fight press conferences for Fury and Usyk aren't set to take place until Thursday, so it's going to be a heated few days if this afternoon is anything to go off.

The weigh-in will also take place at 7pm UK time on Friday.

Ahead of his fight with Usyk, Tyson said: "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."

And Krassyuk said on behalf of Usyk: "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."
