Fury, Usyk Heavyweight Unification Fight Postponed Due To Fury Injury

February 02, (THEWILL) – The highly anticipated heavyweight unification fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk has been postponed indefinitely after Fury sustained a cut during training. The fight, which was scheduled to take place on February 17 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, has been pushed back to a later date.

As the cut, just above his right eye, would prevent Fury from training or competing for several weeks, it will be impossible for the pugilist to compete optimally. A statement on the subject also expressed Fury’s disappointment and frustration at the setback but emphasised his commitment to rescheduling the fight as soon as possible.

The postponement of the Fury vs. Usyk fight is a major disappointment for boxing fans worldwide, who had been eagerly anticipating the clash between two of the best heavyweights in the world. The fight was expected to be a close and competitive contest, with both fighters possessing impressive skills and accomplishments.

The new date for the fight is yet to be determined, but both teams have expressed their commitment to rescheduling the event as soon as Fury is fully recovered.
