WBC President Suleiman to Usyku: Unification of belts against Fury is what the world wants

The fight between the Ukrainian and the Gypsy King can be held in 2024

President of the World Boxing Council (WBC) Mauricio Suleiman reacted to the desire of the WBO/WBA/IBF/IBO world champion Oleksandr Usyk win the WBC heavyweight title.

“Dear champion, you won the green belt in cruiserweight and were the undisputed champion. The WBC has a lot of respect for you and all that you represent. Final unification [поясов] against Fury is what the world wants. All the best to you, as always, dear friend, ”Suleiman wrote on Twitter.

Tyson Fury is the WBC heavyweight champion. Usyk and the Gypsy King could have had a unification fight in April, but the Ukrainian pulled out of negotiations due to contract disagreements. Now the new potential date for the face-to-face meeting between Tyson and Alexander is January 27, 2024.

On August 26, Usyk will fight against Daniel Dubois. The fight will take place in Wroclaw, Poland, at the Tarczynski Arena.

Fury has been cleared by the WBC to fight former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou. Their meeting is scheduled for October 28 in Riyadh.
