Fury will receive an offer to fight Usyk

After signing a contract with Skill Challenge Promotions Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) deprived Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) of financial and marketing arguments in possible negotiations for a fight for four heavyweight belts. The new Saudi promoters of the Ukrainian are able to offer the "Gypsy King" much more money than he could earn by boxing with anyone in the UK.

According to Usyk's manager Alexander Krasyuk in an interview with IFL TV, Fury will soon receive a financial offer from Saudi Arabia for a December fight with the WBA, WBO and IBF champion. According to Krasyuk, this will not be a subject of negotiations and either Fury will accept him, or "he will be able to end his sports career."

It is worth noting that the Saudis do not use a percentage of profit when determining fees for a fight, but simply offer the fighters a specific amount, negotiating with each individually. It should also be noted that SCP's first attempt at organizing a Usyk-Fury fight in March ended in a fiasco, as Fury refused the fee offered to him.
