The world of boxing descends upon Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for a heavily anticipated heavyweight bout. Taking place on Saturday, May 18, Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk will meet to crown an undisputed heavyweight champion.

The event was initially supposed to take place on February 17 but, due to the main event being compromised, it was postponed to the month of May. The event is being co-promoted by Bob Arum from Top Rank and Frank Warren of Queensberry Promotions. Live from the Kingdom Arena, this event has been billed as 'Ring of Fire'.

The card features nine fights in total, with the preliminary card contributing to three of those. Three of the fights on the card will see titles on the line.

The vacant IBF world cruiserweight championship will be on the line on the card. The undefeated Jai Opetaia will go up against the experienced Mairis Briedis.

The other title fight will see Joe Cordina put his IBF super featherweight title on the line, and will be matched by Anthony Cacace who will put his IBO super featherweight championship on the line. The winner in this battle will walk away with both titles.

But the event's headlining fight is one that has been long coming, and all eyes will be on the action.

Fury and Usyk were supposed to meet earlier in the year but, following a facial injury sustained by Fury, the fight got postponed. This is going to be a clash of styles that will end with a unified heavyweight champion being crowned.

This will be the first time that there will be an undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis won the titles in 2000. In addition to the four titles, there will be a special commemorative title made specifically for the fight on May 18.

Between the two champions, there are 56 fights, with Fury contributing 35 of those. Whilst Fury uses the traditional orthodox stance, Usyk opts for a southpaw stance.

Both Fury and Usyk remain undefeated in their careers. This fight has a potential 12 rounds to reach its conclusion, and it could shake up the world of boxing moving forward.
