Oleksandr Usyk has signed with a Saudi Arabia promotion, which could pave the way for a fight against Tyson Fury. || Super Admin

Usyk, the current WBA, WBO, IBF, and IBO heavyweight champion, signed with the Saudi Arabian company Skills Challenge Promotions on Wednesday. The deal could lead to a unification fight against Fury, who holds the WBC heavyweight title.

Fury has been eager to fight Usyk for some time, but the two sides have been unable to agree on terms. However, the signing of Usyk to a Saudi Arabian promotion could make a fight between the two champions more likely.

Saudi Arabia has a history of hosting major boxing events, including the rematch between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr. in 2019. The country is also reportedly willing to pay a large sum of money to make a fight between Usyk and Fury happen.

If a fight between Usyk and Fury is made, it would be one of the biggest boxing matches in recent years. Both fighters are undefeated and considered to be among the best heavyweights in the world.

A fight between Usyk and Fury would be a clash of styles. Usyk is a skilled boxer with a good jab and movement. Fury is a powerful puncher with a good chin.

The fight would be a must-watch for boxing fans around the world. It would be a chance to see two of the best heavyweights in the world go head-to-head.

Here is a timeline of events leading up to Usyk's signing with Skills Challenge Promotions:

  • April 2022: Usyk defeats Anthony Joshua by unanimous decision to become the unified heavyweight champion.
  • May 2022: Fury defeats Dillian Whyte by knockout to retain his WBC heavyweight title.
  • June 2022: Usyk signs with Skills Challenge Promotions.

Here are some of the reaction to Usyk's signing:

  • "This is great news for boxing. A fight between Usyk and Fury would be huge." - Anthony Joshua
  • "I'm excited to see what happens next. Usyk and Fury are two of the best heavyweights in the world." - Dillian Whyte
  • "This is a great opportunity for Usyk to become the undisputed heavyweight champion." - Tyson Fury

It remains to be seen when a fight between Usyk and Fury will happen. However, the signing of Usyk to a Saudi Arabian promotion is a major step towards making the fight happen.
