Usyk and Fury agreed on everything: details were announced by Bob Arum


The head of Top Rank, Bob Arum, said that world heavyweight champions Tyson Fury (his client) and Oleksandr Usyk did agree to fight each other without any intermediate fights. Of course, to believe in this until the boxers enter the ring is a personal matter for everyone.

According to the seasoned promoter, he is still working out the details of the superfight, where all world titles will be at stake – IBF, WBA, WBC, WBA and The Ring.

“Both agreed to fight each other in the next fight (that is, without delay, – ed.)— said the American functionary to the British resource
Sky Sports. Fury and Usyk are both adults, so we have a minimum of empty talk. Usyk is my good friend, he is very smart, and Tyson is Superman, both as an athlete and as an intellect.

“So they want a fight. Both. Therefore, there will be very little (if any) of the various nuisances that are usually in negotiations. We can make this fight. I am very, very sure of this. And yes, I say that both fighters agreed to fight each other without any intermediate fights, ”Arum repeated.

In early December, Fury beat and stopped veteran Derek Chisora ​​in the 10th round in the final fight of their trilogy. After that, Usyk went to the ring to listen to Tyson’s trash talk and retire to the hotel to eat.

Their fight is likely to take place before March 4 in the Middle East, probably at the Saudis.

“In 99%, people like Usyk fail.” Fury threw on the fan

“Now the main question is what is with the date and place,” Arum said. “But this fight will definitely happen, and it will happen in the first four months of next year. Now we have two balanced offers from the Middle East, and there is also the possibility of fighting in Britain at Wembley with a huge audience of 95,000 people.”

Arum stressed that “fighters have a relatively short sporting life and money is important.”

“Therefore, if the money that we were offered is real, this must be taken into account. To go back to Wembley and fight in front of such an audience is already exciting, it would be horrendous, just wonderful. Well, the final decision is not far off. We will solve everything. I hope that this will happen before the end of the year,” Bob summed up.

Do you know what the prediction for the fight is from Wilder’s manager?

By the way, in 2023, Usyk was going home, to the Ukrainian Crimea, which will be liberated from the invaders..
