It's finally fight week for Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Uysk after a lengthy postponement. The pair were originally slated to face off on Feb. 17 but a cut to Fury stalled the event. It will now take place on Saturday, May 18 at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Fury will be stepping into the ring for the first time since he nearly lost to former UFC champion Francis Ngannou. The two fought in October 2023 and Fury was knocked down by the man everyone thought he's beat. The fight was close but he was able to get the nod in the end. Many critics think he'll be looking to prove that fight was a fluke.

Usyk is undefeated and coming off a win over Daniel Dubois in August 2023. He defeated Dubois via a straight right in the ninth round. Before that he had back-to-back wins over Anthony Joshua.
