WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO world heavyweight boxing champion, Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk, is raring for a potential fight with WBC belt holder Briton Tyson Fury, Parimatch reported on Aug 9.

“When the rematch (with Anthony Joshua) is over, I think Tyson Fury will not want to miss the opportunity to unify all the belts,” said the undefeated Crimean boxer. “I think it's possible. I think it will happen, with God’s help.”

The rematch between Usyk and Joshua will take place in the city of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on Aug. 20, 2022
