The head of the promotion company Matchroom Boxing, Eddie Hearn, commented on the news that the WBA, WBO and IBF world heavyweight champion Alexander Usik agreed on a fight with the WBC title holder Tyson Fury.

“It's incredible. I hope the fight happens. I believe they will fight. I believe that wherever Fury is offered a huge amount of money, he will agree to the fight.

In one interview, Bob Arum said that Fury would earn a hundred million dollars, and then quickly doubled that amount. But I'm sure Fury will get a lot of money. We know approximately the amount because it was discussed earlier, and you heard these conversations. It will be a lot of money. And this is a great fight for the heavyweight division. I hope it will take place. I don't know when this will happen. My instincts say it will happen in January, but we need to look at December 23rd, because we are also planning the Chris Eubank vs. Conor Benn fight on that date. I think it’s great for boxing,” Hearn said in an interview with YouTube channel Boxing Social.

Let us remind you that earlier it became known that Fury and Usyk signed a contract for a fight in Saudi Arabia.
