Frank Warren, co-promoter for WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, has shot down the conspiracy theories surrounding the postponement of the undisputed fight with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world champion Oleksandr Usyk.

The fight was scheduled for February 17 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

However, the contest was recently pushed back to May 18 after Fury withdrew with a training camp injury.

Fury sustained a severe cut, above his eye, from an accidental elbow during a sparring session.

Despite releasing photos of the cut, and video of the sparring session in question, some fans have continued to doubt the validity of the injury. 

The fight was initially targeted to take place last December. 

But, the contest was pushed back after Fury took part in a tougher than expected crossover boxing match with MMA veteran Francis Ngannou. During the bout - Fury was dropped, suffered cut on the forehead and sustained a bruised eye.

Warren indicates that there is no question that his boxer wants to get Usyk in the ring.

"Tyson wants the fight," Warren told BBC Sport. "Some of the stuff that's been going out, I've never heard anything like it.

"Has Tyson got make-believe stitches in his eye? What they're saying is libelous and scandalous. It's like some kind of cult against him.

"He can't continue training as such. He can tick over. He can get on the bike and keep well but when you're training for a fight you're training to reach your ultimate best, your peak. Now he has to wind down and set everything back in motion to get himself up and ready and make sure he's at his best for May 18."
