Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk preview:

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, it’s hard to have missed the build-up for Fury vs Usyk. A bout years in the making, on the cards since Usyk first beat Anthony Joshua in September 2021 for his four titles. The winner of that match was set to face Fury, but first Usyk had to beat Joshua again in a rematch which also saw the Ukranian pick up another belt.

Usyk comes into this bout as the reigning WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO and The Ring heavyweight champion. After claiming all the belts across his two bouts against Joshua, Usyk defended them by beating Dynamite Daniel Dubois last year.

Fury is the current WBC heavyweight champion, winning that belt by beating Deontay Wilder in February 2020 after the initial bout was a draw. He preserved his status in a rematch against Wilder 18 months later. Fury has defended his belt so far against Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora.

This bout was initially scheduled to take place in February but had to be postponed after Fury sustained a cut to his face in training. Fury had also postponed a potential December date due to injury sustained in his win over Francis Ngannou.

But there are not just the belts on the line. Both boxers are unbeaten, with Usyk winning all 21 of his bouts, with 14 by knockouts. Fury, meanwhile, has won 34 of his 35 bouts alongside one draw with Wilder.
