Early reports suggest that Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk will not do battle for the undisputed heavyweight world championship on February 17.
The fight – the first of its kind in over two decades – was all set for Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in just over two weeks’ time, but it appears the Brit has suffered a cut in a sparring session that will prevent it from going ahead as planned.
Fury has previously said he would prepare just five weeks for the fight which many feel is the toughest test of his career. There have been rumours circulating about his camp, particularly after the departure of Jai Opetaia, but insiders say that nothing out of the ordinary had happened.
More news on the situation is expected soon.
