Surprising reports have surfaced of Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk having finally signed for the first undisputed heavyweight fight in the modern four-belt era. The fight will reportedly take place in Saudi Arabia, with potential dates being either in December or January.

While no specific venue or date has been officially announced, outlets associated with Frank Warren and his Queensberry Promotions have confirmed that both fighters have indeed signed for this unprecedented heavyweight bout.

If these reports hold true, the match will undoubtedly become one of the biggest fights in the past two or even three decades, surpassing even the last undisputed match between Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield in 2000, which resulted in Lewis being crowned as the last undisputed heavyweight champion.

Notably, Frank Warren expressed his gratitude to Saudi Arabia’s Chairman of the General Authority for Entertainment, Turki Al-Sheikh, who reportedly played a significant role in organizing this fight

This heavyweight showdown will pit Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KO’s) and Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KO’s) against each other in the highest-stakes match of their careers. Both fighters are undefeated and widely regarded as the top two heavyweights in the world. The victor will not only earn the ultimate bragging rights but also the distinction of becoming the first undisputed heavyweight champion of the four-belt era.

If the fight indeed takes place, December 23rd has been mentioned as a possible date for the match, as reported by IFL TV. It’s worth noting that Tyson Fury is scheduled to face Francis Ngannou on October 28th in a non-title exhibition fight, which is unlikely to affect the undisputed heavyweight bout even in the rare event that Fury loses.
