Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk Review

Robert Winfree and Mark Radulich look at all the great fights in boxing history. This time they are presenting their Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk Review.

Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk, billed as Ring of Fire, was a heavyweight professional boxing match contested between WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and unified WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, and The Ring heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight championship. It was scheduled to take place on 17 February 2024 at Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, then postponed due to a facial injury sustained by Fury in training. It was rescheduled the next day and took place on 18 May 2024 at the same venue. Usyk won by split decision.

Usyk broke down in tears in the ring after his victory was announced and dedicated it to his family, his team, and the people of Ukraine. After the fight, Fury commented: “I believe he won a few of the rounds but I won the majority of them … His country’s at war, so people are siding with the country at war, but make no mistake, I won that fight … I’ll be back. I’ve got a rematch clause.” Fury raised the possibility of a rematch “in October”, and eventually declared: “Happy New Year!” Usyk responded to Fury, stating, “If he wants, I’m ready for a rematch.” Usyk suffered a suspected broken jaw from the bout and went to the hospital after his press conference.

Along with Usyk’s team, a few commentators, like TNT Sports’ David Haye, felt Usyk was robbed by the referee of a win by technical knockout in the ninth round. Usyk’s win made him the first new undisputed heavyweight champion in 24 years. Lennox Lewis held the title for five months after he defeated Evander Holyfield in November 1999.[30] In a post-match analysis, analysts wrote that Usyk’s hall of fame case is “beyond cemented” and that he is an all-time great after his win. Two-division undisputed champion Terence Crawford, ESPN’s top-ranked pound for pound boxer, declared Usyk a candidate for the No. 1 position. The tentatively scheduled rematch is set for 12 October 2024.
