And the 34-year-old Usyk proved to be the spanner in the works as he outlived the Brit icon, igniting his fantasy battle for smithereens.

“It was a bit of an anti-climax, but no part of me was happy that he lost,” Fury told IFL TV.

“We were all in the front room saying ‘Come win the fight, get off a big right hand’.

“Why would I be happy? Just £75 million goes down the toilet so I’m not glad he lost.

“I really wanted to win her over and I’ve always wanted her to win.”

Businessmen are grappling with the fumes of the biggest fight in British boxing history.

And the contestant is furious that Andy Ruiz Jr. and Usyk have now managed to defeat the Watford powerhouse before him.

“It’s part of a huge British rivalry and I don’t want anyone else to take him away from me,” he said.

“Maybe they don’t feel that way and they want me to lose this fight so I’m a beaten man like everyone else.

“Everyone in this division will be praying that I may be defeated so that I can be like them, defeated.”
