Tyson Fury’s heavyweight title fight with Oleksandr Usyk is ‘almost done’


The fight is provisionally set for Saudi Arabia on February 18th or March 4th.

A fight between Tyson Fury versus Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight title is close to being agreed upon, according to Usyk’s manager.

Egis Klimas manages the Ukrainian world champion and has revealed that a long-awaited bout between the pair could potentially happen in Saudi Arabia in February or March 2023.

The relevant parties have identified either February 18 or March 4 as possible dates to stage the fight between Fury and Usyk. The bout looks certain to take place in Saudi Arabia.

Klimas also said that talks with Frank Warren, Fury’s promoter, about the fight have been going well.

“We are almost done,” he said.

“There is not much to talk about, two heavyweights, the undisputed heavyweight championship bout, that’s what people need… Most likely, we are aiming for Saudi.”

Warren, meanwhile, has said that there are ‘no obstacles’ to making the fight and that both sides are ‘willing’ for it to go ahead.
