Lennox Lewis is the last undisputed heavyweight champion.
The news broke yesterday that Tyson Fury was cut in sparring and forced to pull-out of the undisputed clash with Oleksandr Usyk again.
The pair were originally scheduled to fight on December 23rd but ‘The Gypsy King’s’ performance against Francis Ngannou led to the fight being moved to February 17th.
It now looks likely that if the fight takes place at all that it could be at least 3 months away according to Lennox Lewis.
He posted on X formerly Twitter:
‘Tough break for @Tyson_Fury. This cut is in same area as one he got in Wallin fight. He’s probably gonna need about 6 stitches and 3 months to heal. 🙏🏾😑 The saga continues…’

A statement from Tyson Fury and his team read: ‘‘I am absolutely devastated after preparing for this fight for so long and being in such superb condition. I feel bad for everyone involved in this huge event and I will work diligently towards the rescheduled date once the eye has healed.
‘I can only apologise to everyone affected including my own team. Team usyk, the undercard fighters, partners, and fans as well as our hosts and my friends in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.’
Will the fight ever happen? Let us know in the comments.
