Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk have finally agreed to make their fight happen. It has been on the lips of all boxing fans for a long time now, especially since Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua haven’t fought yet, as the first undisputed champion since 1999 can now be crowned.
The agreement comes after Usyk beat Dubois controversially in Poland at the end of August. Usyk dropped to the ground after a body shot from Dubois in the fifth round, but it was ruled to be below the belt, much to the dismay of Daniel Dubois. The Ukranian was given four minutes to recover by the referee, giving him time to get back to his best before eventually winning the fight in a ninth-round stoppage.
Fury, on the other hand, had an exhibition fight with former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou in a 10-round non-title fight held in Riyadh, which has given him a lot to think about before his fight to be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. Despite it being Ngannou’s debut in professional boxing, he managed to knock down Fury in the third round. However, Fury narrowly escaped with a controversial split-decision victory, denying Ngannou the win.
