Tyson Fury vs. Oleksander Usyk – News, How to Watch, Ring Walk Time

Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk

On Saturday, 18th May 2024, in the Kingdom of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the world of boxing will fall to a halt when the first bell rings to crown the undisputed world heavyweight champion for the first time since Lennox Lewis defeated Evander Holyfield to claim the status in 1999.

In an event named ‘Ring of Fire’ either Tyson Fury or Oleksandr Usyk will secure their legacy in the boxing history books as the only undisputed world heavyweight champion in a four-belt era, including Usyk’s WBA, IBF, and WBO titles (and the IBO title), and Fury’s WBC title.

Despite both remaining undefeated as professionals, both Fury and Usyk have received criticism for their most performances, Fury’s vs. boxing debutant and MMA powerhouse, Francis Ngannou, and Usyk’s vs. Daniel Dubois.

This fight was due to take place on Saturday, 17th February, however, the Gypsy King was forced to withdraw due to a cut he sustained in sparring.

WBC President, Mauricio Sulaiman, is campaigning for instant video replays in this fight, expressing that any controversy in such a huge event would be unacceptable.
