When is Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk? Date, TV channel, everything we know so far about massive undisputed title fight

TYSON FURY and Oleksandr Usyk are getting closer and closer to signing a deal for their huge undisputed fight.

After months of negotiating, it appears Usyk has accepted Fury’s terms which will see the Brit take home a 70-30 split of the revenue.

Usyk defeated Anthony Joshua for the second time last year to retain his WBA, WBO and IBF titles, picking up the Ring Magazine belt in the process.

Fury is the WBC champ and is coming off four huge consecutive stoppage wins himself.

The Gypsy King beat Deontay Wilder via TKO in 2020 to claim the title, before knocking him out in their trilogy clash last year.

Fury then overcame Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium, stopping him in the sixth round, and he beat Derek Chisora in December.

With no mandatory challengers due, and all the belts in the hands of just two fighters, the undisputed clash looks finally set to happen.

When is Fury vs Usyk going to take place?

A date has yet to be confirmed for Fury’s potential undisputed clash with Usyk.

But according to Frank Warren, all parties are working towards an April 29 clash at Wembley Stadium.

“It’s on,” the Queensberry promoter told talkSPORT.

“Subject to the contracts being sorted out, everyone is on the same page. We just have to keep moving it along and I’m sure it will happens.”

“That would be the date for the fight. At one stage I wasn’t sure if Tyson would be fit for it, but he’s okay.

“The bottom line is they have both come out and said what they want to do and obviously we have to get the contracts signed. Everybody is working on that to get everything finalised.”

What TV channel will it be on?

Fury vs Usyk has yet to be confirmed, but a TV channel will be announced once the fight is signed.

It’s extremely likely we’ll see the fight on BT Sport Box Office, where Fury’s last seven fights have been shown.

Queensberry Promotions and Top Rank are set to promote the mega-event.


What has been said?

The pair met in the ring for a stare down following Fury’s win over Chisora, and words have been exchanged since.

Usyk has released numerous videos in which he’s taunted Fury by calling him ‘belly’.

In each video, the Ukrainian can be seen pointing towards his stomach and shouting: “Hey, belly, I’m coming for you.”

Usyk has also said: “Fury, you talk about greatness in boxing.

“But, at the same time, you say, ‘Give me a lot of money’.

“Greatness in boxing is not determined by money. Greatness comes from a victorious path.

“You say that I avoid you, but I never have. In fact, I have even come to you.

“I am ready to box you even without any prize money.”

Fury has said: “Tyson Fury here, WBC heavyweight number one. Usyk, calling out ‘The Gypsy King’ with your pathetic little call outs, dosser.

“Rabbit, I’m coming for you, rabbit, you’re getting it, rabbit.
