Head of promotional company Matchroom Boxing Eddie Hearn told why the fight between WBC heavyweight belt holder Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) and WBA, WBO and IBF champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) has not yet been announced.
“The delay is due to the demands of the fighters. Of course, you also need to wait until the end of Ramadan. Because of this, the date in March fell through. I’m not sure the fight will take place in April. Perhaps it will take place later, but I hope that this fight will take place.
It’s great to have an undisputed world champion in the heavyweight division. Only Saudi Arabia can pay them that much money. I think that this fight will be next, but you can never say for sure, ”Hearn said in an interview with the iD Boxing YouTube channel.
Previously, the probable date for the Usyk-Fury fight was announced.
