Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs) defeated Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs) by split decision in a dramatic, seesaw battle to capture the undisputed championship Saturday evening at Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

With the victory, Usyk became only the second former undisputed cruiserweight champion, following Evander Holyfield, to repeat the deed at heavyweight.

Usyk stunned Fury with an overhand left in round nine that sent him reeling into the ropes. A series of power shots, punctuated by another sweeping left, sent Fury staggering near a neutral corner. Referee Mark Nelson called it a knockdown, and Fury rose gingerly to his feet as the bell sounded to end the stanza.
