Saudi Arabia To Host Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk Undisputed Fight In March

Published

on

Boxing promoter Bob Arum has revealed that Saudi Arabia want to stage a potential bout between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk in March of next year.

 

 

However, the chances of the contest taking place heavily depend on securing a step-aside deal with Anthony Joshua, Usyk’s next mandatory challenger. Arum works closely with Fury in his role as the ‘Gypsy King’s’ US-promoter and has provided an update on what he thinks is next for the Morecambe-born heavyweight champion.

 

 

“Anthony Joshua lost to Oleksandr Usyk, who now has some of the belts and there is a rematch clause but we want Joshua to step aside so that Tyson can fight Usyk for all four belts” Arum revealed to the Rich Eisen show.

 

 

We would do that fight as sort of a homecoming for Tyson in an arena in Manchester, where he comes from.”

 

 

However, Arum went on to reveal when speaking to talkSPORT that the likelihood of Joshua agreeing a step-aside clause is minimal.

 

 

“I think Dillian Whyte should be the next fight for Tyson Fury,” the promoter explained.

 

“There’s talk about Usyk who beat Joshua – Joshua has a rematch clause – and talk about Joshua stepping aside.

“But Joshua’s not gonna step aside unless he’s guaranteed the winner of Fury vs Usyk, and how anybody assure him of that when Whyte’s in the mandatory position?”

 

 

Joshua has already made his feelings on the idea of stepping aside from the bout clear, telling iFL TV : “I think people know not to approach me with that rubbish.

 

 

“I think people know not to approach me with that bulls***. It may have come to my team, but I think they’d know not to bring that to me at the minute.

“Let me be real with you, at this stage in my career it ain’t about the money, it’s about the respect.

 

 

“You’ve gotta look at what I want out of this game. Number one is respect – you ain’t gotta like me, but you will respect me.

 

 

“In terms of step-aside, I don’t know if that goes in line with what I morally stand for.

“But let me be real with you, I wanna be known as one of the smartest businessmen as well…

 

 

“If the money’s right, we have to look at it, but respect for me has a lot more value than just money.”
