Riyadh Showdown As Fury, Usyk Battle For Undisputed World Heavyweight Crown

The city of Riyadh will literally be on standstill as two undefeated champions, Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk clash today for the undisputed world heavyweight championship at the Kingdom Arena in Saudi Arabia.

Boxing has long frustrated fans with various belts and sanctioning bodies creating multiple champions at the same weights, and frequent disputes over money and clashing egos often prevent the best fighters from facing each other in their prime.

Although Fury vs Usyk has taken some taken to materialise and was postponed from its original date in February after Fury suffered a cut in training, the fact that a bout of this magnitude is finally happening, partly a result of growing Saudi influence in the sport means many are billing it as the fight of this century, with the winner stepping into the ranks of the all-time greats.
