Fury, Usyk Fight Gets Date, Venue, Next Week

By Daily Sports Nigeria on January 28, 2023

TYSON FURY and Oleksandr Usyk have AGREED to their blockbuster undisputed title fight with a location to be revealed next week.

The pair of unbeaten champions have been in talks for the heavyweight division’s first four-belt unification since the new year.

And Saudi Arabia has emerged as a frontrunner to host the historic title fight with the boxers negotiating separate deals.

Fury’s US promoter Bob Arum confirmed an agreement to fight is in place with the date and venue to be imminently announced.

Arum told Sky Sports: “I think both of the fighters have agreed to the fight, I think the question is where the site will be. 

“That will be sorted out hopefully next week and we’ll have an announcement shortly.

“If the fight goes to the Middle East it will be sometime after Ramadan and if the fight is in the UK it will be the beginning of April.”

Arum has refused to rule out Fury, 34, fighting Usyk, 35, on home soil at Wembley Stadium.

But he admitted the prizefighters could be convinced over to the desert, where the most money can be made.

Arum said: “It depends what the deals are and so forth.

“There are a number of us that would prefer the fight to be in Wembley, but again it depends on the money.

“The fighters have a very short limit of their careers and they have to make whatever money, particularly large amounts of money, because in a few years it’s not going to be available.

“I just think it’s going to be a tremendous fight.”
