Tyson Fury is gearing up for what is set to be a busy 2023 – although his next fight is now uncertain.

The Gypsy King wass set to put his unbeaten record on the line again this year, with showdowns against Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua reportedly on the horizon.

And he is full of momentum after knocking out the likes of Deontay Wilder, Derek Chisora and Dillian Whyte in his most recent bouts.

When is Tyson Fury’s next fight?

Fury was finally set to fight reigning IBF, WBO and unified WBA heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk, with the eagerly anticipated showdown reportedly set to take place at Wembley Stadium on April 29.

Events over recent days have put the fight into doubt, however, with the Ukrainian camp blaming ever-increasing demands from Fury’s management.

‘No matter how much Usyk compromised, he was pushed for more,’ Usyk’s manager, Egis Klimas said. Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, has insisted the fight will go ahead but there is plenty of uncertainty as to whether the two heavyweights will ever step into the ring together at this point.
