WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1) has seemingly confirmed that after all the public negotiations with unified world heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0), the April 29th proposed fight will go ahead on the date as suggested. A frustrating period between Friday the 10th and 14th of March has seen Fury offer Usyk a 70/30 split in his favour, demanding the removal of rematch clauses and ultimately setting the tone for negotiations. Usyk, in response to Tyson’s videos which set out his demands, has accepted each demand in video responses via his own social media platforms.
In his latest video, Tyson states that his training camp will begin tomorrow, March 15th, to start his social media blackout and train for the April 29th date in question. Finally, in a refreshing change from public insults towards Usyk, Fury wishes Usyk well and may the best man win.
“Hi guys. As fun as it’s been over the last few days terrorising Usyk and his team, tomorrow I’m gonna knuckle down into training camp, and I’ll be doing a blackout as we always do on social media.
“April 29th is definitely a worker. I will see you all on the night. Tune in. Be there or be square. This is the biggest event in British boxing history. Fight of the century. Two undefeated world heavyweight champions throwing down to see who is the number one in the division. The undisputed world heavyweight championship on the line.
“Peace out. Good training to Usyk. May the best man win.”
