Oleksandr Usyk vs Tyson Fury fight ‘In Negotiations’ says Fury's co-promotor

Tyson Fury's next move is unknown to everyone, he retired several times and came back from retirement, calling out Joshua with blackmail to sign the contract giving him an ultimatum, then calling out Charr, only for his father to say that Hrgović, Ruiz, and Ortiz are potential opponents for Fury in the twelfth month.

But that's not all, because information emerged yesterday that Fury's next opponent will probably be Derek Chisora. Fury has created a buzz around him with his recent moves, but what fans are probably most interested in is if and when the unification fight with Oleksander Usyk will happen.

That question probably depends not only on Fury and Usyk but also on the promoters and their financial interests, but Bob Arum, Fury's co-promoter, may have answered that question: "Tyson Fury is Tyson Fury. He hasn't been trained in law school so he wants a fight, if he's imposing deadlines which aren't really deadlines because he's sending a message, get off your asses and get this thing done," Arum told Sky Sports.

"It was clear that was the case. So, nobody should be blamed for this fight not happening, not Tyson, not AJ, not anybody else other than Eddie Hearn."

He also touched on the issue of a potential match between Usyk and Fury

"Absolutely.

I keep in contact on virtually a daily basis with Egis Klimas, the manager of Usyk, because he's also the manager of fighters that we promote," said Arum. "So, I always take a reading on this and Klimas said that in his discussion with potential sites, it would be the last week in February or the first week in March which would suit us all."

Usyk said he is still open to face Fury next year

“I don’t know anything about what Tyson Fury is doing or thinking. We’re in negotiations talking about a match and we’re doing our best to make this bout happen,” Usyk told Parimatch.

“Of course, I really want to have this fight next year. “But, if Tyson Fury is not interested in a match next year, then it’s not possible to fight against him. I’m not interested in fighting any other boxer, so let’s wait”.
