The long-awaited bout for the Undisputed World Heavyweight Championship is said to now go down at London’s Wembley Stadium on April 29. the daily Mail He states, “Fury himself is urging rival title holder Oleksandr Osyk to agree to a London date, as oil-rich bidders in Saudi Arabia cannot confirm that construction of their new stadium in Jeddah can be completed in time.” Of course, this being boxing, nothing can be guaranteed until the sound of the opening bell. However, fighting in London would give England’s Fury a distinct “hometown” advantage over Usyk in Ukraine.

The clock is now ticking on a fight that was said to go down in Part One 2023. Fury-Usyk-sized spells take time, after all. There are a million little details to attend to, plus the fighters themselves need enough time to prepare. writes “boxing in bodies” daily Mail, “The WBC in the case of Fury, the WBA, the IBF and the WBO whose belts Usyk holds – they won’t wait forever for the mandatory defense of their titles against other major challengers.” Suffice it to say that the fight, should it fail, will be the third, or perhaps even fourth, great contest not to see the light of day in the past several months.

A possible heavyweight bout between Fury and Anthony Joshua was canceled for the latter part of 2022, as it was a very long run as he hoped to throw the bout between welterweight bosses Terrence Crawford and Errol Spence. Aside from negotiations for a hopeful Fury-Usyk fight moving forward, negotiations for the fantastic Gervonta Davis-Ryan Garcia are still moving forward – or not. It’s a tough time for fans of the beautiful science, no doubt, because the message being delivered is that the best simply may not be fighting the best at this point in the sport’s history.

With all that being said, it’s doubtful that Fury or Usyk would be willing to let this opportunity simply slip by the wayside without doing everything possible to make it happen. There hasn’t been an undisputed heavyweight champion since the era of Lennox Lewis, which means it’s long past time for them to be the undisputed heavyweight king. With Fury and Usyk both being undefeated and highly skilled, there’s no legitimate reason, really, why a match couldn’t be made in some way in the near future. The heavyweight division actually depends on it.
