The highly anticipated heavyweight undisputed fight between WBC and Lineal champion Tyson Fury and the unified WBA, WBO, IBF and Ring magazine champion Oleksandr Usyk won’t be taking place in 2022.
The Ukrainian fighter defeated Anthony Joshua for a second straight time in Saudi Arabia, clearing the way for a undisputed clash. If such a fight is being materialized, this will go down as one of the most important fights in the history of boxing due to the fact there will be a undisputed heavyweight king for the first time since Lennox Lewis took all three major belts then.
This time the stage will be even bigger, due to the fact that there has never been a four belt undisputed king.
Initially, there were reports that such a fight could be made on December 17, a day before the World Cup final match. However ESPN have reported that the fight is now “highly unlikely” to take place on that weekend is now being eyed for either February 11 or 18 next year.
