Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk full fight card


Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk is almost here.

This Saturday, Fury and Usyk face off for the title of undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, at Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Fury puts his WBC heavyweight title on the line against Usyk’s WBA, IBF, IBO, and The Ring heavyweight titles, and the winner will be crowned the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis in 2000.

Fury (34-0-1) is one of the most decorated heavyweight champions in recent history, but recently had an underwhelming performance against lineal MMA heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou when the two fought each other this past October. Fury eked out a split decision victory over the boxing debutant, despite getting dropped in the third round. Now he faces a considerably more experienced opponent in Usyk.

Usyk (21-0) is the 2012 Olympic gold medalist in boxing. He turned professional in 2013 and has been dominant since, becoming the first (and thus far only) undisputed cruiserweight champion in the four-belt era. Usyk then moved up to heavyweight, where he twice defeated Anthony Joshua to claim his current titles. Most recently, Usyk defended his belts with a ninth-round knockout of Daniel Dubois this past August.

The event kicks off at 10 a.m. ET on DAZN with two prelim bouts before jumping to an eight-fight pay-per-view portion, capped off by the heavyweight title fight. You can check out the full fight card below.
