Every boxing fan wants to witness the most anticipated Heavyweight boxing fight – Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk, happen this year. It is one of the biggest fights as both fighters are undisputed world champions, so a lot of things are at stake when it comes to this fight. The winner of this bout would be getting prized with the unified Heavyweight Championship belt, for the first time after Lennox Lewis got it in 2000.

So Egis Klimas talked with SNAC.com, where he told them that if the fight does not happen on April 29th, it won’t be happening any time sooner. Klimas said, “If the fight is going to happen, only April 29th. Or it’s just going to be canceled, and we’ll go with the mandatory.”

Before this, Usyk’s promoter, Alexander Krassyuk, made similar claims that the fight may not happen, and that the Oleksandr Usyk vs Tyson Fury is in jeopardy. So, Usyk’s team has been calling out Tyson Fury on the fact that he’s changing his requirements every other day and it’s becoming difficult for them to accept everything.

But Tyson Fury hasn’t shown any confusion regarding the fight, as he seemed quite sure on his social media that the fight is going to happen. Even his promoter, Frank Warren, showed no skepticism about the fight getting canceled. So this has left fans in a major conundrum as to whether the fight will be taking place or not.
