Talks between the two camps have not been fruitful, as discussions over a fight at Wembley Stadium in April broke down. This is despite Usyk agreeing to a 70-30 split.
In the aftermath, both fighters fired shots over who was responsible for the failure of the fight. But since that moment Usyk has inked a deal with Skills Challenge Promotion.
The deal will give the Ukrainian more pulling power in any negotiations, as the Saudi promotional company aims to put on the biggest fights.
With that being said, Krassyuk has stated that the ‘Gypsy King’ will be given a final take-it or leave-it offer.
“According to my knowledge, they will receive a formal written offer very soon, and it will be their decision or Tyson’s decision whether to take it or leave it because we’ve done everything possible to make this fight happen and now the ball is on Tyson’s side.
“If you take it, then you have a big fight, the biggest fight of your career. If you hesitate or if you try to trade out something or trying to swing around, it shows that you’re not serious and you have to relinquish the belt and retire, not for one month or for one week as you used to retire shortly recently but probably forever,” Krassyuk
If a deal with Fury cannot be made, then Usyk could face Deontay Wilder which would be the most lucrative fight.
As for Fury, the only viable option would be a fight with Anthony Joshua. And yet, neither fight is likely to appease the public.
