Usyk and Fury may not determine the absolute world champion: a known condition

Oleksandr ChekanovNews
Usyk and Fury will fight in May

The International Boxing Federation (IBF) will put its belt on the line for the fight between Croatian Filip Hrgovic (17-0, 14 KOs) and British Daniel Dubois (20-1, 19 KOs), scheduled for June 1. This may lead to the fact that the title of absolute world heavyweight champion will not be played this year.

This will happen if Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) and Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) fail to find a winner on May 18, i.e. the judges record a draw. After that, the IBF will deprive the Ukrainian of his title, and in the rematch against the Briton, three belts will be at stake instead of four.

It is known that the second fight between Usyk and Fury is scheduled for mid-October. Tyson himself has already confirmed that he has no intention of refusing fight #2 against the Ukrainian.

Before that, Fury spoke frankly about Usyk, calling him a terrible person. The British boxer also spoke about being bullied in his younger years, when he was offered to quit the sport. In addition, the fantastic fees of the opponents for the May 18 fight were announced.
