“I'm looking forward to a great 2023. I hear all this talk about big money in Saudi Arabia. Frank Warren told me that the fight could take place in the first quarter of next year, in February or early March. So let's do it. I'm ready, and Usyk seems to be ready too. He just looks like a rabbit. His eyes are set far apart and he has a large gap between his teeth. I think my dad gave him the nickname “Rabbit”. Call me “Farmer” and the farmer will skin a rabbit and eat it for breakfast. Here's what we'll do with it. You can put me at number 1, and put the names of the next three opponents in a hat and choose. This is Joyce, Usyk and Wilder, – Fury quotes Boxing News 24.
