Frank Warren created a buzz among boxing enthusiasts with a tweet which hinted that an agreement between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk could be announced.
As widely acknowledged, Fury is currently in discussions with Usyk’s team to reach an agreement on the contracts for an undisputed match scheduled for April 29th, 2023, at Wembley Stadium.
Initially, it seemed highly unlikely that the clash between the two boxers would happen since their representatives were facing difficulty in reaching an agreement.
However, things took a surprising turn when Fury publicly proposed a 70/30 purse split in his favor, which Usyk accepted despite his earlier demand for a 50/50 deal.
Once the financial terms were settled, the teams for both Fury and Usyk began working on finalizing the contracts.
Usyk’s team has expressed their skepticism about Fury’s genuine intentions, causing them to doubt the likelihood of the fight taking place, as stated publicly.
The points for agreement were sent to Fury’s side. The deadline is set. The clock is ticking. The ball is on #Greedybelly’s side now. We did everything in our power to make it happen @Tyson_Fury

However, Warren has remained firm in his belief that the fight will be finalized. And by the looks of it, his latest tweet suggests that.
