Tyson Fury v Oleksandr Usyk unification fight ‘will be made’

August 22, 2022 

 A “historic” heavyweight unification fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk “will be made”, says the Briton’s promoter frank warren.


Ukrainian Usyk retained his WBA, WBO and IBF titles with a split-decision win over Anthony Joshua on Saturday.


This month WBC champion fury said he would stay retired. After Usyk’s win he said he “would annihilate them – get your cheque book out”.


Britain’s Lennox Lewis was the last undisputed heavyweight champion after beating Evander Holyfield in 1999.


Since 2007 the undisputed heavyweight championship has included the WBO title, and there has never been a fight where all four belts were on the line.


Fury remains unbeaten after 33 fights. After extending his unbeaten record to 20-0, Usyk said: “if I’m not fighting Tyson Fury, I’m not fighting at all.”


Although Joshua has now lost his belts, Warren said an all-British clash between fury and Joshua could still happen “down the road maybe”.


He said: “if AJ manages to get a couple of wins under his belt – and i believe Tyson will beat Usyk – that may be a fight to be made.


“But AJ’s got to re-establish himself before you can even think about fights like that
