The fight of world boxing champions Tyson Fury and Alexander Usyk is almost perfect.
The basics in brief
- The duel for domination in the heavyweight category will be held in the first four months of next year.
Promoter Bob Arum announced this according to information from Sky Sports Great Britain.
The duel for domination in the heavyweight category will be held in the first four months of next year. However, the date and location has not been decided yet. Talk about a battle in the Middle East or at Wembley in LondonStadion.
The 35-year-old Ukrainian Osyk is the world champion of the WBA, WBO and IBF associations, and the WBC title is held by the younger Britton Fury. The winner can call themselves the undisputed champion. Britain’s Lennox Lewis was the last heavyweight to do so in 2000. He holds the WBC, IBF and WBA titles. At that time, the WBO did not have the status it has today. Usyk has already been a champion in four major associations, but in cruiserweight (up to 90,718 kg), a lower heavyweight category.
“With Fury and Usyk we’re dealing with two adults, there’s not much back and forth. Usyk is a good friend of mine, he’s very smart. Tyson is Superman as an athlete and as a thinker,” said American promoter Arum, who markets Fury.
The point of contention could be the division of the stock exchange. “Fighters have relatively short lives and money is important. If the money that was being proposed to us is realistic, then that has to be taken into account,” said the 91-year-old. Both boxers are said to have vowed never to have another fight before they met.
