Tyson Fury-Usyk rematch date to be confirmed


The date for the rematch between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk is set to be confirmed within the next month, according to promoter Frank Warren.

Usyk beat Tyson via split decision when the two heavyweight boxers met earlier this month.

This victory ensured the Ukrainian would become the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis in 1999.

The contract for the first bout includes a rematch clause, which both men want to honour.

“The rematch was signed before the first fight took place anyway and that date will be set within the next month or so, both fighters said they wanted it and we’ll go from there.

“It was a fabulous fight, two absolute gladiators who didn’t leave anything in the ring in an epic fight in the most important fight of the 21st century.

“A very very close fight and I think it will be an even bigger one next time,” Warren told Sky Sports
