With less than two weeks remaining until their initial clash, Saudi boxing chief Turki Alalshikh is already paving the way for the heavyweight giants to go toe-to-toe once again.

The rematch, agreed upon as part of the contractual terms for their first encounter, is scheduled to kick off the latest edition of Riyadh Season.

The stage is set for a historic showdown, as the pair prepares to vie for the undisputed world heavyweight championship later this month on May 18th.

This monumental event marks the division’s first undisputed title fight in nearly 25 years, promising an electrifying spectacle for fight enthusiasts worldwide.

Date revealed for part 2 of Fury vs. Usyk

The road to this highly anticipated rematch hasn’t been without its hurdles.

A two-way rematch clause, already invoked three times due to unforeseen circumstances, underscores the gravity of this encounter.

Saudi kingpin Turki Alalshikh has earmarked October 12th and 13th as potential dates for the rematch, subject to both fighters emerging unscathed from their imminent battle in Riyadh.

However, there’s a twist in the tale regarding the heavyweight title landscape.

The winner of the initial bout will relinquish the IBF title to pave the way for mandatory challenger Filip Hrgovic.

Despite this, the stakes remain sky-high as Fury and Usyk gear up for a clash of titans.

Fury, exuding confidence ahead of the showdown, emphasized the business-like nature of their rivalry, stating, “It’s not personal, it’s strictly business for both fighters.”

With the promise of a hefty paycheck and the opportunity to showcase his prowess on a global stage, Fury is poised to deliver a spectacle worthy of his moniker, ‘The Gypsy King.’

Before the Fury-Usyk sequel, Turki Alalshikh has his sights set on hosting a mega-event at London’s Wembley Stadium, further solidifying his position as a pivotal figure in the boxing landscape.

Reflecting on his approach to matchmaking, Alalshikh emphasizes collaboration among promoters, a strategy that has propelled him to the forefront of boxing’s resurgence.

As the countdown to Fury vs. Usyk intensifies, boxing fans await with bated breath, eager to witness history unfold in the heart of Riyadh.
