The moment has arrived. For many months, fans were in the ambiguity about whether or not Tyson Fury will square off against Oleksandr Usyk. The two are in talks for a title unification bout for many years. It also escalated when Fury announced his return to the sport after his retirement. But, in the past few weeks tensions and doubt increased as both parties are engaged in a deadlock over the finer details of the fight.

Fury had demanded a “70-30” split of revenue between the main event fighters. Witnessing the same, the fans criticized Fury for proposing such a demand. Although, if the words of promoter Frank Warren are to be believed, it appears that the fight is close to confirmation.

Usyk took to social media and confirmed the terms set forth by Fury and his management. It became evident that the fight was confirmed as both fighters came to an agreement. Though, nothing truly in this sport is confirmed as long as both fighters step into the ring.

For now, Warren is positive about the two taking on each other. In an interview, he was asked for an update on the fight. He stated, “As I said from the beginning, we’ll get this fight over the line. It will get over the line because both fighters want it.”
