When is Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk? Date, TV channel, everything we know so far about massive undisputed title fight | The Sun

TYSON FURY and Oleksandr Usyk finally look set to fight for the undisputed heavyweight titles – and a date has now been pencilled in.

Usyk defeated Anthony Joshua for the second time last year to retain his WBA, WBO and IBF titles, picking up the Ring Magazine belt in the process.

Fury is the WBC champ and is coming off four huge consecutive stoppage wins himself.

The Gypsy King beat Deontay Wilder via TKO in 2020 to claim the title, before knocking him out in their trilogy clash last year.

Fury then overcame Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium, stopping him in the sixth round, and he beat Derek Chisora in December.

With no mandatory challengers due, and all the belts in the hands of just two fighters, the undisputed clash looks finally set to happen.

When is Fury vs Usyk going to take place?

A date has yet to be confirmed for Fury's potential undisputed clash with Usyk.

But according to Frank Warren, all parties are working towards an April 29 clash.

And the venue could be Saudi Arabia once again, with Riyadh being targeted, but Wembley Stadium is also still in play.

“The fight will take place 100 per cent the last Saturday in April," Warren said.

“Where it takes place I genuinely think will be determined within the next six or seven days maximum.

“If we can’t do what we’re being asked to do with Tyson and Usyk [in Saudi Arabia], then the fight will take place in the UK.”

What TV channel will it be on?

Fury vs Usyk has yet to be confirmed, but a TV channel will be announced once the fight is signed.

It's extremely likely we'll see the fight on BT Sport Box Office, where Fury's last seven fights have been shown.

Queensberry Promotions and Top Rank are set to promote the mega-event.

What has been said?

The pair met in the ring for a stare down following Fury's win over Chisora, and words have been exchanged since.

Usyk has released numerous videos in which he's taunted Fury by calling him 'belly'.

In each video, the Ukrainian can be seen pointing towards his stomach and shouting: “Hey, belly, I’m coming for you."

Usyk has also said: "Fury, you talk about greatness in boxing.

"But, at the same time, you say, 'Give me a lot of money’.

“Greatness in boxing is not determined by money. Greatness comes from a victorious path.

“You say that I avoid you, but I never have. In fact, I have even come to you.

“I am ready to box you even without any prize money."

Fury has said: “Tyson Fury here, WBC heavyweight number one. Usyk, calling out ‘The Gypsy King’ with your pathetic little call outs, dosser.

“Rabbit, I’m coming for you, rabbit, you’re getting it, rabbit.
