Al ash-Sheikh reveals potential sanctions for boxers!

The organizer of the Riyadh Season boxing events series, Turki Al ash-Sheikh, revealed the sanctions that can ensure the organization of a showdown for the absolute, undisputed champion between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk on May 18. 

"If Usyk gets scared, I will call Joshua for Tyson; if Tyson hesitates, I will call any fighter Usyk wants. This is on my behalf. We have guarantees from both sides, and they know it," said Al ash-Sheikh. 

Earlier, it was announced that if Fury does not participate in the match on May 18 for any reason, he will be obligated to pay compensation of $10 million. Usyk must do the same.
