Usyk in training for likely February date with Fury

Oleksandr Usyk is hoping to have his undisputed heavyweight world title fight with Tyson Fury in Saudi Arabia in February. This is contingent on Fury recovering from his 10-round bout with Francis Ngannou. Contracts were signed in September, but the proposed December 23 date in Riyadh is likely to be postponed due to Fury’s near-defeat to Ngannou. Usyk, who holds the WBA, WBO, IBF, and IBO belts, expressed that the final date should be determined next week. He stated that he would prefer the fight to take place in February, considering Fury’s recent injuries. Usyk remains unfazed by the delay and plans to use the extra time for technical work. He emphasized that he is focused on himself, his team, and his family, rather than his opponent. Usyk draws inspiration from his late father and his country, Ukraine, as he aims to honor them through his achievements. He also mentioned Muhammad Ali as a role model and hopes to contribute to the development of the sport. Usyk has co-founded Ready to Fight, a digital platform that connects boxers with various professionals in the industry. This platform aims to provide more opportunities for athletes and prevent deception.
