Boxing Fight: Tyson Fury is rumoured to “surprise us all” when the Oleksandr Usyk fight is finalised

Boxing Fight: After Tyson Fury set a deadline of September 1 for the announcement of his potential undisputed heavyweight matchup with Oleksandr Usyk, Top Rank president Todd DeBoeuf stated that he is waiting, much like the rest of the boxing world.

Fury has previously said he won’t return to the ring for less than £500m, but he gave his promoters instructions last week to tell the WBC that he plans to fight despite frequently implying he had given up boxing.

Fury is being given the freedom to choose his next course of action, DeBoeuf stresses, but he also points out that anything can happen.

“It’s the Tyson Fury show,” DeBoeuf told Sky Sports. “He thinks technically is at a pause, he’s paused his career and we respect that and we’re continually having conversations with the Warrens in the UK about what possibly could come down the pipeline.

“I think if an Usyk fight happens, I think it would probably happen sometime in the first part of 2023.

“But nothing imminent with Tyson right now, other than I’m just ready for him to get on social media and surprise all of us with another crazy statement.”

“It’s hard for me to decipher that (whether the deadline was real),” he added. “I think the Warrens have been in constant communication with him and his team, we’ve had conversations and we’re not being reactive to a tweet or a video clip.

“We’re looking at the whole landscape of what we’re going to do.

“We’re going to try and secure what would be the biggest fight out there for him, and obviously both him and Usyk want to bring all the heavyweight titles together on one night and that would obviously be our objective.

“If you’re off by a day, a month, six weeks, what does it matter as long as you get that done?”

Following Usyk’s successful title defence against Anthony Joshua, it has become more apparent that both men are open to and eager for a winner-takes-all fight to determine the heavyweight division’s ruler.
