Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk have agreed to face each other next.

The two hold all four major heavyweight world titles together and their much-anticipated fight would decide the undisputed heavyweight world championship.

Top Rank’s Bob Arum, the US company that co-promotes Fury with Queensberry Promotions in the UK, revealed to InNewCL Sports that neither Fury, the WBC champion, nor Usyk, the combined WBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight title roster, would fight before this showdown.

Fury and Usyk are firmly committed to hosting the undisputed competition in early 2023, with only the exact date and venue remaining to be decided.

“The two fighters have agreed to fight each other next,” Arum told InNewCL Sports.

“With Fury and Usyk we are dealing with two adults, not many [rubbish] Back and forth. Usyk is a good friend of mine, he’s very intelligent and Tyson is Superman, both as an athlete and as an intellect,” he continued.

“So they want the fight. Both want the fight and so there will be very little, if any, [messing] around. So we’ll work it out. I’m very, very confident. As I said, the fighters have both agreed to fight each other next without bouts.”

Britain is still in the running to host the fight, despite lucrative offers to take it somewhere in the Middle East.

“Now the question is what is the date and what is the place,” Arum said. “But that fight is definitely going to happen and it’s going to happen in the first four months of next year.

“We are considering a couple of significant offers from the Middle East and there is also the possibility of the fight being fought in the UK at Wembley [stadium] with 95,000 spectators.

“Fighters have relatively short lives and money is important, so if the money that has been proposed to us is real, that has to be taken into account.”

But he added: “To go back to Wembley and have a fight for me in front of 95,000 people really gets the blood pumping.

“It would be crazy. It would be just wonderful.”

It shouldn’t be long before a final decision is made. “We will arrange everything,” said Arum. “I hope maybe by the end of the year.”
