Usyk ‘There’s a deal’ with Saudi Arabia for Tyson Fury fight



Negotiations for fans to see the undisputed heavyweight champion continue, with Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk both getting closer to stepping into the ring.

The date and location are yet to be decided, but if late March or April is indeed the target, some movement will soon be required. Bob Arum recently said boxing scene that Saudi Arabia – the leading candidate to host – makes its own arrangements with each fighter.

“The way they work is to deal with individual warriors. We were led to believe they would come up with a proposal [this] week. I’ll believe it when I see it, but it’s not like they haven’t experienced it in the past.”

Now, in another update provided by the veteran US promoter, it is said that Usyk has been offered and accepted the said deal. Arum said Gareth A Davies that they are now expecting the same for Fury.

“Usyk’s people told me they have a deal they’re happy with and now if the Saudis are really interested, they’ll make a deal with us on Tyson Fury and we start the race.

The match will take place before or after the month of Ramadan but the fighters do not need a long time to prepare if it is after the month of Ramadan because both sides are non-Muslim.

The updates represent progress, but narrow the dream of UK fans who are keen to see the undisputed heavyweight champion crowned at Wembley Stadium.

The UK location has yet to be ruled out and Team Fury has indicated it is their favorite, but it took two men to make the fight and it’s hard to see the Ukrainian looking for a payday. salary in the Middle East – especially if he has already agreed to those terms.

With Fury’s WBC belt pitted against Usyk’s IBF, WBO and WBA, time is of the essence to deliver the epic battle when the remaining heavyweights are ready for the consequences and their blows to win the championship.
