The undisputed heavyweight showdown is back on. Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk are set to meet on Saturday night in Saudi Arabia with all four recognized titles in the heavyweight division at stake. The fight was first set to take place in February, but a cut suffered by Fury in training camp delayed the matchup by three months. The teams have arrived in the Middle East ready to finally decide who the best heavyweight in the world truly is.

Both men enter the fight coming off scares in their 2023 campaigns, with Usyk being dropped by Daniel Dubois only for the referee to rule the shot a low blow and allow Usyk time to recover. He then stopped Dubois in Round 9. 

Fury was forced into a much tougher spot in October when his undefeated record barely survived a fight with former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou. Ngannou scored a knockdown and did enough to win plenty of rounds, though Fury ultimately took a split decision victory. While Fury’s title was not on the line, a loss would have been even more embarrassing than narrowly escaping with a win in a fight he was expected to dominate.

The undercard also features a pair of title fights along with some more intriguing matchups that could set up title challengers later this year. Jai Opetaia and Mairis Briedis are set to battle it out for the vacant IBF cruiserweight title. The two previously met in July 2022 where they both caused severe damage to one another. Plus, Joe Cordina looks to defend his IBF super featherweight title against Anthony Cacace. And heavyweights Frank Sanchez and Agit Kabayel are set to throw down.
