Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk are less than two weeks out from the fight of their lives, and the Riyadh Season promotional video is as extravagant as expected.
The two heavyweight champions – Usyk the WBO, WBA and IBF; Fury the WBC – will face off on February 17 in Saudi Arabia to crown the division’s first undisputed champion since Lennox Lewis.
A technical battle is expected, and many are predicting it to play out until the final bell after twelve, but the trailer produced to promote it depicts a powerful showdown that crosses genres as quick as Fury can switch stances.

The clip follows suit from Fury and Francis Ngannou’s bombastic promo and the zombie-themed Day of Reckoning which featured Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.
Alongside the hype, the broadcast details for the fight are now being reported. Chris McKenna of the Daily Star first revealed that, whilst DAZN has worldwide rights, UK fans will also be able to tune in via Sky Sports and TNT Sports.
All three platforms will be pay-per-view with a price yet to be released, though fans will hope that it matches the Joshua and Wilder card’s modest £19.99.
