‘I can have at most three more games. It’s the most realistic thing to be in my top form with Fury, Canelo and a farewell fight at Olympiyskiy, Usyk said.

With Canelo, he said he wanted to fight me. It would be a freak fight just to make money. People say I’m a freak. Why not?’

However, Usyk admitted that he only intends to defend his titles one more time – against Fury – before ending his career with two more fights for various reasons.

“I only need to beat Fury and then it’s time to retire for me,” he said.

‘The collection of all belts is much more important than just a fight or another defense. I want to box out Fury and I don’t want to work so hard just for another defense. There is much more I can achieve.

“It’s only for money with Canelo.”

It is expected that Usyk will eventually fight Fury, although the Briton is closing in on a deal to fight Joshua next.

Canelo, meanwhile, recently defeated Gennady Golovkin in a trilogy fight and apparently has his heart set on a rematch with Dmitry Bivol after suffering a shock defeat in May.

Usyk may therefore have to wait for his dream fights, but will understandably hope to see his career out in his home country, which he has returned to following his win over Joshua amid Russia’s invasion.
