He told iFL TV.”My take is, deeply, truly, my honest opinion is my dad wants what’s the best for his son.

“And the best for his son after he’s been put down and nearly out cold is to get him through the fight.

“F*** the boxing, you can be KO’d and not wake up. That’s his mentality ’cause he wants the best for his sons.

“But sometimes when you want the best for someone it’s maybe not the best instructions. Them instructions is sometimes not what you need.”

The British heavyweight was badly hurt in the ninth round of the fight but managed to recover to see out the contest.

Fury will take on Usyk again in Saudi Arabia on December 21st.
