‘The Cat’ hasn’t competed since his rematch with Anthony Joshua in August of last year. AJ launched an early assault on the Ukrainian during their heavyweight championship match. But he ended up winning by a razor-thin margin after dominating the last rounds. Following that triumph, he started planning a match with Tyson Fury for the undisputed belt.
Since Lennox Lewis did it in 2000, the winner of the fight will be recognised as the first unified heavyweight champion. The two made it official yesterday, after several months of negotiations. Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury are planning to fight on April 29. The epic contest will take place in London, England’s enormous Wembley Stadium.
One of the most significant fights in heavyweight history took place in an ideal setting. Nonetheless, given the nature of boxing, fights frequently go wrong. Usyk has a backup fighter, according to Alex Krassyuk, the Ukrainian’s manager, in case that happens. Fury will go up against Daniel Dubois if he pulls out. The WBA’s current obligatory opponent for Usyk is Dynamite, however he was able to postpone the fight to take on Fury.
Income share for the match
The required challenger will take the stage if the heavyweight unification fails. Oleksandr Usyk eventually called him out on it and accepted the truce. Tyson Fury is now in fight camp and has been delivering video messages to his opponent since the match was finally made official. The British heavyweight was mocked in a recent video that was shared on social media. “We’re preparing to destroy Oleksandr “The B****” Usyk in the gym. The hideous cat with gaping teeth.
You understand now! You’ll be forgotten in six weeks! Come on, I’ll still be known as “The Gypsy King”!” The combat between “The Gypsy King” and “The Cat” has been discussed, but it was eventually agreed upon yesterday. The income share for the historic match was the primary factor in the delay in the bout’s official announcement. A 50/50 split, in his opinion, is ideal because each man is a champion. The Englishman, on the other hand, didn’t agree and wouldn’t fight till the split was 70/30 in his favour.
