OLEKSANDR USYK will only take on Tyson Fury when he runs out of TOILET PAPER, the Gypsy King's father John has claimed in a strange rant.
WBC champion Fury, 34, looked to be on a collision course with Usyk after the Ukrainian beat Anthony Joshua for a second time to retain his IBF, WBA and WBO belts back in August.
But reports then emerged that Usyk, 35, was not ready to take on the undefeated Brit until 2023, so Fury has sought alternative fights for the end of the year.
He was heavily linked with a blockbuster bout against Anthony Joshua, but that has collapsed over the past week.
Now Fury is expected to face Mahmoud Charr at the Principality Stadium on December 3.
And his father John, 58, bizarrely believes a clash between his son and Usyk will not happen until the former undisputed cruiserweight champion no longer has any toilet roll.

Speaking to FreeBets.com, he said: "When Usyk runs out of toilet paper, we might be able to do something good.
"At the minute they're terrified, aren't they? They've not come off the toilet thinking about Tyson the Gypsy King because they know the result. They're going to get beat.
"Tyson will fight Usyk in his front garden in the middle of Ukraine in front of the Ukrainian President. How’s that?
"No venues needed, he’ll fight him anywhere on the planet, preferably his back garden or his kitchen or his lounge.

"That’s where we’re at with Usyk. Tyson’s not bothered about him at all. That's what we're in the game to do. If we have to get to that blown-up middleweight, the Ukrainian, we will do."
John continued: "We will chase those belts down. Tyson will chase them down and beat them unmercifully. He'll tan them up like they've never been tanned before in their life, and they know this.
"Usyk is on about fighting Canelo to avoid a Tyson Fury clash.
"What Usyk wants to do is make as much money out of the titles that he can before he has to meet the Gypsy King. He knows the belts are gone."
Meanwhile, Usyk recently insisted he remains keen to make the Fury fight next year.
He told Parimatch: "I don’t know anything about what Tyson Fury is doing or thinking. We’re in negotiations talking about a match and we’re doing our best to make this bout happen.

"Of course, I really want to have this fight next year. But if Tyson Fury is not interested in a match next year, then it’s not possible to fight against him.
"I’m not interested in fighting any other boxer, so let’s wait."
