Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk have 'everything in place' for 'biggest heavyweight fight of all time' set for Saudi | The Sun

TYSON FURY and Oleksandr Usyk have "everything in place" for "the biggest heavyweight fight of all time" next year in Saudi Arabia.

Fury returns tonight in a trilogy bout against Derek Chisora, the man he compressively beat in 2011 and 2014, defending his WBC crown.


In attendance at Tottenham's stadium will be WBA, IBF and WBO unified champion Usyk on a ringside scouting mission.

It comes as the Ukrainian's promoter revealed all that Fury needs to do is avoid defeat in order to secure the historic unification bout.

Alexander Krassyuk said: “There is only one thing pending and that is Tyson’s fight. Everything else is in place and we are ready to go.

“It is very likely it is going to be Saudi but, if not, we have many options to market this fight.

"It is the biggest heavyweight fight of all time, probably, so it is not going to be very complicated to place it somewhere on the planet.”

Usyk, 35, most recently beat Anthony Joshua, 33, in their Riyadh rematch in August.

And he will return to the scene of his first victory over AJ in hope that Fury, 34, can do the treble over old friend Chisora, 38.

Usyk was offered the heavyweight division's first four-belt undisputed bout for the end of the year.

But having returned to war-torn Ukraine for the first time after victory over AJ, he decided to rest and recover with his loved ones.

It led to Fury offering Chisora a shock crack at his world title and a third attempt to break his unbeaten record.

But an expected win for the Gypsy King all-but confirms a massive title unification with fellow undefeated star Usyk in 2023.
