Usyk promoter explains talks about location and expiration date for rampage

Oleksandr Usyk promoter Alex Krassyuk has explained the thinking behind picking the host for the undisputed historic battle with Tyson Fury.

Since Usyk beat Anthony Joshua for the second time, his focus has been on being undisputed in division. To do that, he must overcome the remaining champion – Tyson Fury.

Fury had a winter warm-up in the form of Derek Chisora, and now that that’s over, nothing seems to stand in the way of vying for all the belts.

Krassyuk talked to seconds run outallow fans to participate in negotiations.

“A fight like that is the biggest fight in boxing. So we can publish it, say, today or tomorrow. We have a basic option to make it happen at Wembley or Cardiff or anywhere else in the UK.

But as long as we work for our men, the heaviest men in the world, we must give them the greatest and most benefit. So we are not working on it. We are currently working on the site. We are negotiating with three countries in the Middle East and we still have the UK base option.

So worst case scenario, it’s going to Wembley or any other big stadium. Any other scenario is that it takes place in the Middle East. The deadline that we have agreed to is March 4.”

March 4 is very important for Usyk because Ramadan begins later that month and the champion has previously said that will affect his training.

As for the site, it has long been clear that all involved are looking forward to a payday in the Middle East and at this point it’s hard to see the fight unfolding in the UK, even if Krassyuk politely mentioned.

However, the headlines – and the positive news – is that things are headed for a battle announcement soon, and The weight class crowns the undisputed champion.
