Top Rank chief Bob Arum confirmed that the deal for the undisputed heavyweight title fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk has been closed, although the venue is yet to be set.
During an interview with talkSPORT, Arum detailed what was the deal that was sealed between Fury’s team and Usyk’s team, for a match to crown the undisputed heavyweight champion.
“Both fighters have agreed to fight, that is clear,” Arum told talkSPORT. “The question then is where the fight is held and that will be decided by the end of the year.”
In addition, the promoter referred to the high probability that the expected duel will take place at the mythical Wembley Stadium, if not somewhere in the Middle East. Nonetheless, Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk will be one of the biggest fights of 2023, without a doubt.
“There’s a couple of places in the Middle East that have expressed big interest and made offers and of course there is the possibility of doing the fight in Wembley Stadium,” he went on, “Whenever that fight happens and I believe it will happen within the first four months of the year, it’s going to be a huge, massive fight and I can’t wait to see it.”
