Usyk vs Fury Undisputed Winter Clash Set for Saudi Arabia
The heavyweight fight that all boxing fans want to see will finally occur. 3kingsboxing.com has learned that unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) and the reigning WBC champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) have signed a deal to fight for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world.
Word on the street is that Usyk versus Fury will happen either in December 2023 or January 2024 at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Fury’s co-promoter, Queensberry Promotions, posted the following statement on social media:
AT LONG LAST
Previously, the heavyweight champions were in talks to fight on April 29 in England. However, they couldn’t agree to terms, and negotiations fell through.
At the time, some in the boxing community took it as a sign that Fury was ducking a fight with the unified champion. As recently as September 7, the WBC champion claimed he wasn’t keenly interested in a fight with Usyk. It’s now apparent that he never stopped pursuing a battle with the unified champion.
Fury has an upcoming non-title fight against former UFC champion Francis Ngannou on October 28 in Saudi Arabia. Should The Gypsy King come out unscathed against Ngannou, all roads lead to a showdown with Usyk in what would be a super fight and one of the biggest sporting events in the world.
