Usyk signed a contract with SCP

Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs), IBF, WBA and WBO world heavyweight champion, signed a contract with the Saudi sports agency Skills Challenge Entertainment, which founded a promotional organization called Skill Challenge Promotions (SCP).

Interestingly, this is not the first world champion in this stable, because SCP also has Badu Jack (28-3-3, 17 KOs), a former world champion in super middleweight and light heavyweight, as well as the current WBC world champion in first heavyweight. Now Usyk has joined the organization, but Oleksandr Krasyuk will also remain his co-promoter.

This move will in no way affect the previously chosen goal of the Ukrainian and the championship fight in Poland. Before Usyk takes on Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) in Saudi Arabia, at least that's the plan of his new promoters, he must first make a mandatory WBA defense against Daniel Dubois (19-1, 18 KOs). ). This fight will almost certainly take place on August 26 at the stadium in Wroclaw, which can accommodate more than 40,000 fans. The next step should be a full unification of the heavyweight titles against Fury.
