Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury Will Rematch on December 21

The rematch is on between new undisputed world heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk and former champion Tyson Fury.

They will fight again on December 21 as part of Riyadh Season, despite initial speculation they could fight as early as October.

They contested a thriller in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on May 18, with Usyk winning a split decision, nearly stopping Fury in the ninth round of an engaging battle.

The fight ebbed and flowed with both having their moments and a rematch clause was inserted in the original contract, and both fighters will do it again.

Chairman of the GEA in Saudi Arabia Turki Alalshikh posted on X this morning: “The rematch between the Undisputed Champion Oleksandr Usyk and the Champion Tyson Fury is now scheduled on the 21 of December 2024 during Riyadh Season...The world will watch another historical fight again...Our commitment to boxing fans continues...We hope you enjoy it.”
