Undoubtedly, fans are still hot for the fact that the WBC heavyweight title fight is undisputed between the WBC and the linear champion Tyson Fury and the WBA, IBF and WBO champion Oleksandr Usyk failed before either of them signed on the dotted line. What was supposed to be a smooth negotiation has turned into a nightmare, and hopes for an undisputed welterweight title fight between Errol Spence and Terence Crawford have failed, leaving the sport with The sport of boxing is once again reviving with its already less-than-stellar reputation. . With that said, it seems that the negotiations between the Fury and Usyk factions are heating up again.

“Correct,” side reporter quote Fury promoter Bob Arum as saying (via guard) when asked if the two sides will return to the negotiating table. “That’s right. I spoke to a representative of Challenge of Skills, which organizes these boxing events in Saudi Arabia. We know those guys, we worked for them in relation to the match. between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury on US television, so we know who the players are and we’ve had some very interesting conversations with them.”

Many will surely roll their eyes at this latest development. Simply put – too many big fights have expired or haven’t dropped at all, causing the boxing public to get excited about something as simple as getting back to the negotiating table. The fact that Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia were able to overcome the red tape that strangled the contemporary fighting game to actually make a superfight a reality last month only made the parties unable to negotiate a similar deal go bad. worse. Fury and Usyk have stated that they want to fight so perhaps things will work out for themselves this time around.

All else being equal, a very engaging Fury-Usyk fight. Fury is a giant man, one who can hit and move as well as anyone in the division. Usyk may be significantly smaller than Fury but it is said that he is the same height as George Foreman in the ring. He’s also a master boxer who knows how to hit himself. Fury will likely be the favorite to step in, if the fight is made, but it’s hard to imagine him being one of them. In other words, it’s not too hard to see a Fury vs Usyk fight going either way. On top of that, it would be great if the heavyweight division actually had an undisputed world champion once again.
