Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk AGREE on Purse and set date for Title unification bout

The World Boxing Association has confirmed that both Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk have reached an agreement for their highly-anticipated undisputed heavyweight bout. The boxing bout is set to take place on April 29 at Wembley Stadium, although Usyk’s promoter expressed doubts that the boxing bout would happen next.

Agreement Made Before Deadline

Despite the promoter’s comments, the WBA received confirmation of an agreement made between the two teams before the Friday deadline. However, both sides have requested more time to work on the contracts to finalize the deal.

Details of the Agreement

According to a lawyer for Usyk, the two parties agreed to terms that will see Fury receive a 70% split while Usyk will take 30%. Fury had previously offered the same split on his social media channels.

Usyk’s Conditions

In an Instagram video, Usyk added that he would accept Fury’s offer if the Englishman immediately donated £1m to the people of Ukraine and also gave up 1% of his purse to Ukraine for each day he delayed.

Champion vs Champion

Fury, the current WBC champion, will face Usyk, the WBO, WBA, and IBF champion, in what is sure to be an exciting event. Fury has 33 victories and one draw on his record, while Usyk has won all 20 of his professional bouts.

With the agreement now in place, boxing fans around the world eagerly await what will undoubtedly be an unforgettable boxing bout between two of the world’s top heavyweight champions.


Fury previously told talksport he’s only interested in Usyk and Ngannou in 2023:

“Yeah, there is. Maybe Francis Ngannou in a cage, with four ounce gloves, Queensbury rules. Bad a** referee like Mike Tyson. Who’s not going to watch that? It can happen, you know.”

When asked if he was interested in boxing against Anthony Joshua, Fury clarified it’s either Usyk or Ngannou for him:

“Not interested. Not interested. And I’m looking for in a century against Usyk on if not about a spot on the planet against Francis Ngannou even one of them tooth that’s what I’m looking for really.”
