Speaking to Sky Sports, Bob Arum made all boxing fans happy after he revealed that Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk will fight against each other. "The two fighters have agreed to fight each other next," Arum told Sky Sports.
"With Fury and Usyk we're dealing with two adults, not a lot of [rubbish] back and forth. Usyk is a good friend of mine, he's very intelligent and Tyson is Superman, both as an athlete and as an intellect," he said. Arum is convinced that there will be a fight and that certain details will be resolved.
"So they want the fight. Both of them want the fight and so there'll be very little, if any, [messing] around. So we'll be able to make that happen. I'm very, very confident. As I said the fighters have both agreed to fight each other next without any interim fights." The date is still unknown, but the most important thing is that the fight is close.
"Now the question is what's the date and what's the site," Arum said. "But that fight is definitely going to happen and it will happen in the first four months of next year. We are balancing a couple of significant offers from the Mid East and also there's the possibility of doing the fight in the UK at Wembley [stadium] with a massive 95,000 crowd in attendance.
Fighters have a relatively short life and money is important. So if the money which has been proposed to us is real that has to be taken into consideration."
He wants Wembley. It would really be a real spectacle for everyone, and a fight that would solve many dilemmas.
"To go back to Wembley and do a fight before 95,000 people for me really stirs up the blood. It would be crazy. It would just be wonderful. It shouldn't be too long before a final decision is made. We'll have it all sorted out," Arum said. "I hope maybe by the end of the year."
