Despite repeated assurances from managers that the super-fight of the two main heavyweights of the last decade, Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury, will definitely take place, fewer and fewer fans believe in it.
The fight has been postponed more than once, the next date was April 29 at Wembley. But the parties again failed to agree on terms.
And then the Ukrainian side withdrew from the negotiation process. As Oleksandr Krasyuk, promoter of the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk of Ukraine, admitted: “We made this decision after we received evidence that the fight would not take place anyway.”
