The scheduled fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk is now set to take place at Wembley Stadium in April.
The pair were originally scheduled to fight at the new Jeddah stadium in Saudi Arabia, but the nation have doubts over whether the stadium will be ready for the Fury and the Ukrainian to fight in.
Now, it’s reported that the fight’s promoters have booked Wembley Stadium as the alternative venue, with the date remaining April 29th.
However, the only stumbling block over the rearranged fight would be the paydays the pair initially agreed with the Saudis, so they will have to renegotiate. If the pair cannot agree on their respective new deals, the fight may not go ahead.

However, Fury would still be expected to fight on the date, but against a different opponent of his choice. It is unclear yet who Fury and his team will turn to if the Usyk fight does not materialise.
