Skills Challenge Entertainment preparing to submit offer to Tyson Fury for Usyk encounter

WBC world heavyweight world champion, Tyson Fury, is set to receive an off from Saudi Arabian promotional entity Skill Challenge Entertainment regarding an offer to face unified world heavyweight world champion Oleksandr Usyk to be held in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The revelation comes following comments from the Saudi’s spokesperson, Amer Abdallah, has revealed that a lucrative offer is going to be presented to the WBC title holder to finally secure an undisputed world heavyweight title fight which has been speculated on numerous occasions so far this year.

Speaking to Talksport, Abdallah has stated that he would like to secure Fury to face Usyk in December, which had been speculated since the turn of the year.

Usyk is all but set to obligate his mandatory challenger Daniel Dubois in August in Poland in what will be the second defence of his WBA, WBO, IBF & IBO world heavyweight titles. Usyk earlier this month had signed a promotional agreement with Skill Challenge Entertainment, which is funded by the “Ministry of Sport” of the Saudi government.

Abdallah revealed in no specific terms that the promotional entity is willing to overpay market value for the contest between Fury & Usyk and, when speaking to Talksport, indicated that there might be room for negotiations and that any offer is not subject to a take it or leave it method of talks.

“The premium offer will be coming soon, it will be based on the market value and demand of the fight. Tyson is frustrated, he wants to fight. If he can land something in September or October and then clear himself for December, we would love to make that offer,” Abdallah told Talk Sport.

“It will be a premium price, we would never insult anybody with the offer. Prince Khaled when he makes an offer, they are big offers and he has no problem doing that. He is backed by the Ministry of Sport and everybody within the region. The offer will be there but it’s not going be a negotiation, it will be ‘Here’s a great premium price’. We would love to make the fight happen.

“It’s very easy sometimes in boxing for us to pound our chest and say ‘Take it or leave it’ but I would never want to insult somebody by saying ‘Listen, here’s the offer, take it or leave it’. Even if the offer was phenomenal, that’s not how you do business. We know going into this that the offer is very fair offer. We would love to work with Tyson and bring him to the Kingdom.”
