Predominantly, Oleksandr Usyk possessed a wild threat to this fight, as he was a mandatory WBO title challenger for Anthony Joshua. The Ukrainian boxer was pretty keen on pursuing his path for the title shot, but the Brit ‘AJ’ remained firm on the undisputed fight with Fury.

This put the battle between the two Britishers in jeopardy, as ‘AJ’ would have to take on Usyk first if he wanted his WBO heavyweight title to stay on the line.

It was the prime concern for this fight, which finally seems to have eradicated.

More than anyone else, both ‘Gypsy King’ and Joshua are ecstatic to take each other on. The winner between them is going to mark himself as the best undisputed staunch heavyweight on the planet.
