“This issue is settled.” Bob Arum about Usyk-Fury fight


American promoter Bob Arum from Top Rank Promotions gave
interview for the British media.

In a conversation, the functionary commented on the organization of the fight for the title of absolute world champion between the unified heavyweight champion (over 90.7 kg) from Ukraine Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) and the WBC champion from Britain Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KO).

Everyone wants to see what Tyson Fury’s next move will be. You all talked about the fight for the title of absolute champion against Usyk. Alex Krasiuk said this is the fight they want next. Do you have news on this?

The fighters agree that they will fight each other next. With this issue resolved. The next question is about the venue. We have some offers from the Middle East and we have the opportunity to do a huge fight at Wembley. This will be resolved in the coming weeks. And whatever path the organization takes, it will be a huge event.

– Do you have any doubts that this fight will be for all titles? I know everyone is talking about the mandatory challengers. WBA and IBF agree on this?

— Yes, the titles will be together. At least for this fight. What will happen next with these organizations – only God knows.
