The news of this mega fight being agreed will be music to the ears of all boxing fans. Many feel this fight could have happened earlier this year. Usyk and his representatives have been clear that they became tired of the drawn-out negotiations, which saw them walk away from the discussions – which saw the Ukrainian fight WBA mandatory challenger Daniel Dubois, with Usyk surviving a fifth-round scare and stopping Dubois later in the fight.
It is thought Usyk accepted a 70/30 purse split in favour of Fury but denied the Brit’s call to scrap the proposed rematch clause. The breakdown of negotiations saw Fury agree to fight former UFC star Francis Ngannou, with the two fighters already meeting at the official press conference.
The fight boxing has demanded will take place at the Kindom Arena in Saudi Arabia. Despite the confirmation of the fight being signed and the venue confirmed, we are waiting on the official fight date. This mega fight will be promoted by Queensberry, Top Rank, K2 and Usyk17.
