Oleksandr Usyk will be heading to the biggest rematch of his life in all aspects of boxing. However, Tyson Fury seems adamant to have whatever shine he can in a huge weekend for heavyweight boxing.

Usyk and Joshua will have the rematch of their fight in Wembley earlier this year, at the dune deserts of Saudi Arabia. The second Joshua rematch to be held in this territory, the fight has grabbed the eyes of the world as we finally get a definitive answer to Joshua’s standing in boxing history.

While all this marches on, Fury who announced retirement after his most recent victory over Dillian Whyte keeps hinting at making come back under very suspicious overtones. One week he’s calling for a free fight against Joshua to decide the best, while the next he asks for $500 million to do the same. Ultimately what critics have noticed is that Fury has shown interest only in fighting Joshua and never Usyk.

Fury has dismissed Usyk many times as someone who’s fighting above his weight and is nothing but a “Fluke bloated champion” The two have met in the past, notably at one of Frank Warren’s events where the two squared off.


Now after months of one-sided barbs from Fury, Usyk has finally responded to the now retired champion. Answering Fury’s comments about calling Usyk a bloated-up middleweight, he said, “I want to laugh every time I watch him and listen to him. He told me completely different things to my face, but I am not going to tell you what he told me. I know we are going to be fighting one day.”

Usyk is a similar fighter to Fury but is certainly much more agile, thanks to his comparatively shorter stature. After becoming the unified champ at cruiserweight, Usyk made sure he wasn’t settled and wanted to move up to heavyweight.

His debut against Chisora planted doubts in the minds of few about how well he would fare among the heavier boys. However all that was brushed aside when he outboxed Anthony for 12 rounds winning the WBA, IBF, WBO, IBA Heavyweight Titles.

Fury meanwhile has given out contradicting statements about his career path, most recently announcing his retirement on his 34th birthday, where he also vacated his Ring Magazine Title.
