Usyk vs. Fury 2 will be highly anticipated

Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk were first meant to clash on February 17 but the Englishman was forced out following a bad cut sustained in sparring just two weeks prior to the fight.

Instead the two heavyweight rivals put on a 12-round instant classic on May 18, with Usyk becoming the historic first unified heavyweight champion in the four-belt era.

The fight was one of the best heavyweight title bouts in a long time and fans all over the world will look forward to the rematch in December.

“I’m not boxing because I have now money, I do it because I love it. I’m 36 in a few months and I’ve been boxing since I was a child,” Fury said at his post-fight news conference.
