Fury-Usyk in the Middle East?

Promotional bids will take place on Friday to organize a fight for the WBC heavyweight belt between Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 22 KOs) and Dillian Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs). Meanwhile, the Gypsy King's promoter Bob Arum told talkSPORT that investors from the Middle East want a four-belt fight between Fury and Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs). However, the head of Top Rank does not seem to be optimistic about the "Arab version".

“It looks like total chaos,” Arum admitted. "There are promises to organize Usyk-Fury fight and pay Whyte for refusing. But this also includes people who do not have treaty powers. I don't know how it will end and who these people are from the Middle East. All I know is that Queensberry and Top Rank have a contract with Tyson Fury and no one has talked to us about buying the rights," the WBC champion's promoter added.

It is worth recalling that about a dozen days ago, Tyson Fury announced on social networks the "return of the Arab king." What he meant at that time, he has not yet explained, although a few days later he promised "great news." At the same time, do not forget that Oleksandr Usyk is contractually obliged to rematch with Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs), who must also receive "compensation" in the event of a unification fight for four titles.
