The Fury vs Usyk heavyweight belts on the line, Tyson Fury and his crew have made a move about the upcoming boxing match that will pit the “Gypsy King” against Oleksandr Usyk.
If the Ukrainian champion agrees to the stipulations, which include the fight taking place at London’s Wembley Stadium on April 29, the contest may be officially confirmed as early as this week.
The Boxing tonight reports that the possibility of the fight taking place in Saudi Arabia has been ruled out because officials are unable to guarantee that the new stadium in Jeddah, where it would be held, could be built in time for the fight.
The promoters for Fury have already made the decision to plan a significant bout for April 29 at Wembley, with or without Usyk.
In case Usyk declines their offer, Deontay Wilder has been in contact with Fury’s team for weeks, according to World Boxing News. Due to this circumstance, the fight between Andy Ruiz and “Bronze Bomber” has been temporarily postponed.

Tyson Fury vs Usyk will finally square off
- The battle between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk is scheduled for the next year.
- Following Fury’s victory over Derek Chisora on Saturday night, the rivals squared off.
- Usyk is the WBA, WBO, and IBF champion, while Fury is the WBC champion.
- The IBF belt may be the final obstacle left until the 2023 fight.
The fight will absolutely happen on the final Saturday in April, according to Frank Warren, co-promoter of Fury, on talkSPORT Throughout the next six to seven days, the location will be chosen.
If we are unable to fulfill our obligations to Fury vs Usyk, the fight will take place in the UK, where we will have more time to publicize it and other related activities.
“If it goes to the Middle East, it will cost more because they will pay more for the boxing World Cup,”
The fact that Usyk dealt directly with Saudi Arabia for his part and the Saudis withheld their agreed-upon payment amount irks Fury’s promoters.
Warren and Bob Arum were planning to proceed in a similar manner because they both had blank checks available, but because they would not have had any control over the split, the arrangement fell through.
Anthony Joshua agreed to all of Fury’s demands a few months back in order to fight in December 2022. The “Fury Team,” however, refused to hold the fight, claiming that AJ and Eddie Hearn had not reached an agreement by the deadline.
The heavyweight division has not had an uncontested champion, a single person who rises above the rest as the undeniable, unquestionable No. 1, since Lennox Lewis in 1999. But, conversations are already under way to make that happen, and plans are being made to have Fury vs Usyk in Saudi Arabia the following year.
Following his victory over Chisora, Fury disclosed that he will require surgery on his elbow,, which would take ‘approximately six to eight weeks’ to recuperate. As the Gypsy King remarked on Saturday, let’s get started.
So there you have it. Easy, yes? Boxing is never that simple; if only. Contract discussions remain a topic for discussion. Will the split be 50/50? Will the outcome of the inevitable rematch be 60-40? Where on TV will it be broadcast? Are there any requirements that will obstruct progress? Do both men really want to fight each other?
