Frank Warren, the co-promoter of Tyson Fury, the reigning WBC world heavyweight champion, recently offered his insights on the potential disruption of Fury's upcoming title fight against Oleksandr Usyk, who currently holds the WBO, WBA, and IBF titles.
Warren revealed that Usyk may opt to fight Daniel Dubois instead of Fury if the latter is unavailable for the match, thus adding an element of uncertainty to Fury's highly anticipated championship bout.
"I spoke to Dubois a few days ago. He is doing well and is back in training. With Tyson Fury and Joe Joyce coming up, we probably don't have a date for Daniel until mid to late May. It all depends on what will happen with the Usyk-Fury fight. If we can't make it on April 29th, then Dubois will fight Oleksandr."
"Negotiations about the fight with Usyk turned out to be very long, and it's disappointing. There are still a few issues that need to be resolved. If the fight happens, it will happen on April 29. But we have to wait and see. Tyson will fight on that day , and I hope we don't have to go down the path of finding another opponent for him," Express quoted Warren as saying.
