Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk review, that’s if fans read promoter Frank Warren’s latest announcement.
Negotiations have been going on since Fury unilaterally destroyed Derek Chisora in December 2022put the heavyweight division in the best possible position to see a four-belt champion for the first time.
While there were no broadcast bottlenecks or beef commercials, negotiations stumbled throughout the process. The target date is April 29 at Wembley Stadium and the Usyk side have made it clear that if that is not respected the 70/30 split their men accept is undisputed.
Further pressure was added today by the WBA. Sanctioning agency expires as a term – deliver contracts signed before April 1 or Usyk will be ordered to face his obligatory challenger, Daniel Dubois.
Then Fury’s UK promoter, Frank Warren, delivered some big news – even bigger than the fact that his dear Arsenal FC is definitely at the top of the Premier League.
Arsenal 8 points clear!
Even bigger news to come! 👀

The frustration surrounding the negotiations was obvious and must have influenced Warren’s thought process prior to the tweet. That, fans will hope, is a good sign.
Having said that, the Queensberry promoter has been bullish in the face of recent adversity, stated that the ‘fight continues’ despite the negative comments from Usyk.
His advance announcement was accompanied by footage of Tyson Fury seemingly being caught shooting a promotional video for the fight, and optimists might believe the recent upbeat comments from the Ukrainian tennis player are bargaining chip to get some of the things in the final contract that he feels is worth it.
With the April 1 deadline approaching, new pressure has been placed on the promotion to announce the match and give fans their right – to watch an impossible heavyweight champion. argumentative.
