Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk set date for heavyweight bout

Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk will fight for the world heavyweight championship in Riyadh on February 17.

Britain’s Fury is the WBC world champion and Ukraine’s Usyk holds the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts. Both have unbeaten records.

Contracts were signed in September for a proposed December 23 date, although that was never confirmed and slipped after Fury’s near defeat to former UFC champion Francis Ngannou in a non-title bout in Saudi Arabia on October 28.

Britain’s Lennox Lewis in 1999 was the last undisputed world heavyweight boxing champion.
