Usyk knocked out Daniel Dubois in August to retain his WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight world titles.

Howvever, despite the victory, Usyk struggled with a Dubois body shot in round five, having to sit on the canvas for a good few minutes.

Some fans believed that moment should’ve seen Dubois win the fight, but the referee controversially ruled it as a low blow.

But when Fury was asked if this perceived weakness of Usyk’s is something he intended to capitalise on, the Gypsy King said it wasn’t body shots he’d be going for in the blockbuster clash in Saudi Arabia.

Instead, he wants a knockout.

“I’m looking for face shots. Always looking for the knockout.” he told Mail Sport.

When pressed on if he was looking for the knockout, he said: “Always. I’m looking for face shots, in the face! In the face.

“That’s what I am looking for, in the face!”

Fury and Usyk were pulled apart during their intense face-off on Thursday night.

The bout was originally set for December 23, but Fury facing 10 brutal rounds against Francis Ngannou forced the fight to get pushed back.

The new date for the blockbuster clash has now been confirmed as February 17.
