Ladies and gentlemen, the first undisputed heavyweight fight of the 21st century is on!
Heavyweight kings Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk will put their WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO titles on the line in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on February 17.
At a fiery pre-fight press conference and stare-off, Fury didn’t hold back when he took to the mic.
“You know what’s coming, you’re getting smashed to pieces. You’re fighting the best British heavyweight there’s ever been. You beat all the rest of them, but you ain’t beat Tyson Fury, sausage,” Fury said.
Tyson Fury is Usyk’s Goliath
The Irishman was expected to fight the Ukrainian WBA, IBF and WBO champion on December 23, but after facing Francis Ngannou, in had a harder fight than he probably expected, the unification title bout was postponed to February 17.
“You’re welcome to be sharing a ring with the future undisputed heavyweight champion – me,” Fury said about the upcoming title fight.
The Olympic gold medallist Oleksandr Usyk, however, is sure he got what it takes to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion since almost a quarter of a century.
“I want to tell one story which looks very similar to our story with Tyson, about David and Goliath,” Usyk said about the fight. “When the Lord gives me Tyson in my hands, I will do my job.”
