Tommy Fury has revealed he is confident that a fight between brother Tyson and Oleksandr Usyk will be made, mainly due to the fact neither man has anywhere else to go.
There is a growing concern amongst fans that the mammoth undisputed clash may not happen, after talks appear to have stalled in recent weeks.
However, ‘TNT’ told FightHype that he believes the fight will “100% happen.”
“I’m confident the fight will get made, because both men don’t really have another fight. This is the biggest fight for both of them.”
“I believe that the fight will 100% happen, it’s just a case of when and where.”
The delay is supposedly due to Fury not being able to agree an individual fee with representatives from Saudi Arabia, and news broke over the weekend that Wembley Stadium in England is now the new frontrunner to land the contest.
The concern is that this is more than likely going to involve a whole host of new negotiations with team Usyk, as the Ukrainian had already reached a deal of his own with the Saudis.
‘The Gypsy King’ is expected to demand a lion’s share of the purse split should the event take place in his native Britain, which many fear could put the first undisputed heavyweight world title fight in twenty years in jeopardy.
As for Tommy, he has a big date of his own to take care of, with his blockbuster against brash YouTuber Jake Paul less than two weeks away.
That fight will in fact take place in Saudi Arabia, with the Diriyah Arena laying host to the spectacle which is expected to be viewed by millions on both sides of the pond.
Tyson has told his younger brother he can “stay in Saudi” if he fails to dispatch of Paul – so no pressure then!
