Promoter Frank Warrenqueensberry promotions) is cautious when talking about the progress of negotiations on organizing the fight for the title of absolute heavyweight champion between the holders of all division belts Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) from Ukraine and Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) from Britain.
The event is tentatively scheduled for April 29 and will be held at the iconic Wembley Stadium in London (England). But first, all obstacles must be removed. First of all, this is the distribution of the prize fund.
Tells Warren: We’re still working… I think we’ll close the deal this week. How exactly will this happen? Do not know yet. But one way or another, I think we will agree. With confidence, I can promise only one thing – we will make every effort to make the fight take place. This is what Tyson wants. Yes, he wants to fight at the end of April. And our task is to fight him. I hope that Usyk will be his opponent.”
Why do you think Fury and Usyk can’t agree on a fight? Hearn has the answer. A little earlier, Tyson’s father said: The situation with Usyk is increasingly reminiscent of what happened with Joshua.
