Frank Warren has provided a big update regarding a potential undisputed heavyweight world title fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk.
Whilst appearing on Talksport, Warren assured fans the fight would “100%” be taking place on April 29th.
Warren also confirmed that the only issue left to resolve was the location of the fight, with talks still ongoing with representatives from the Middle East.
“The fight will 100% take place on the last Saturday in April. Where it takes will be be determined within the next six or seven days.”
“If we can’t do what we’re being asked to for Tyson and Usyk, then the fight will take place in the UK and we’ll have time to promote it and so forth.”
“If it goes to the Middle East, it’s because they will pay a premium for the World Cup of boxing.”
The hold up is believed to be on Fury’s side, with Team Usyk having reportedly already reached an agreement with the Saudis and are ready to put sign the contract for the legacy defining fight April.
If Fury cannot strike a deal of his own, the bout is expected to land at Wembley Stadium – which will be music to the ears of British fight fans.
Fury vs Usyk would be the first undisputed heavyweight world title fight in over 20 years, since Lennox Lewis defeated Evander Holyfield all the way back in 1999.
Conversations have already begun as to where the victor would rank in the all time great heavyweight conversation. Evidence, as if any was needed, of the true magnitude of a meeting between the pair.
