Well-known journalist Dan Rafael explained the delay in announcing the fight between Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) and Brit Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs).
"They aim to officially announce the fight and host it on April 29th. As of now, Oleksandr Usyk's team has agreed to all terms and has signed the agreement, so there are no issues from their end. However, there may still be challenges from Tyson Fury's side.
The location of the match is yet to be determined, as both parties are working to finalize the venue. The deadline for a decision is fast approaching," Boxingnews24 quoted Rafael.
We remind you that in his last outing, Usyk secured a split decision victory over Joshua in their rematch, successfully defending his titles. He also claimed the vacant world champion belt according to The Ring magazine.
Tyson Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion, solidified his title on December 3rd when he defeated Derek Chisora at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.
The winner of the Usyk-Fury match-up will be crowned the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. The Ukrainian has previously held this title in the heavyweight division. However, the fight has not yet been officially approved as the contract between the two fighters has yet to be signed.
