The first fight ended in a split decision

Former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs) has activated the option to rematch with absolute champion Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs), the British fighter's promoter Bob Arum has announced. The second fight will take place either at the end of this year or early next year.

"The fight will take place in Riyadh again. This is the contract signed by both fighters. There is a clause about revenge and Tyson used this clause. Let's wait for the rematch. I think there will be a huge interest in it no matter who wins. Personally, I would like to see Tyson win this fight," Arum was quoted as saying by talkSPORT.

It is not yet clear whether Fury will be able to fight Usyk for all four belts. On May 19, it became known that Usyk would remain the absolute champion only until June 1, 2024, as the mandatory defense of the IBF title against Filip Hrgovic was overdue.
