The boxing world is preparing to see Tyson Fury take on Oleksandr Usyk in the WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO heavyweight world title fight in early 2023.
Speaking on Talksport Drive to Andy Goldstein and Darren Bent, Fury’s promoter Frank Warren said: “Both fighters absolutely want it.
“It’s gotta go on by March and so we’ve gotta all move quickly so over the next couple of weeks we will or we won’t get it sorted out.”
Talk then moved to what the situation will be regarding the pay-per-view situation and how much it will cost to view the fight.
“It depends on what the structure of the deal is,” admitted Warren.
“If there isn’t a guarantee and it’s done on a share basis, then again that determines what the price will be.”
Asked whether the price to watch the bout will go up, Warren said: “Oh yeah. With the four belts on the line – without discussing it with anyone, yeah, I’m sure the price will go up.
“The same as if Tyson would have fought Anthony Joshua, the price would go up. They are the two big money fights.”
The fight date still hasn’t been confirmed, but it is expected to take place either towards the back end of February/early March in the Middle East.
