Fury vs Usyk: Fighters history

Both Fury and Usyk have storied histories within boxing, each coming into Saturday’s bout with an undefeated record.

Tyson Fury

Tyson’s faced much adversity in his path to success, stepping away from boxing for some time due to suspensions and personal issues.

Prior to his break, Fury was beginning to become the most unstoppable man in all of heavyweight boxing, beating Vladimir Klitschko WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, Lineal and The Ring heavyweight titles. 

Upon returning, he cut a different character, one who seemed more focused and determined. He quickly came face-to-face against the then-WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, whom he would share one of the greatest boxing rivalries of all time with, spanning three fights, off which Fury won two and drew the first.

Since then, Fury has kept a firm hold of the WBC title, beating Dillian Whyte, Derek Chisora for the second time, and most recently, newcomer Francis Ngannou.

Oleksandr Usyk

Usyk is a world champion in two weight classes, originally as a cruiserweight where he was the first cruiserweight to hold all four major world titles at once as the undisputed champion.

He took the step up to heavyweight in 2018, winning his first title in his second bout against Chisora for the WBO Inter-Continental title.

In his next fight, he shocked the world after beating the then-WBO, WBA (Super), IBF and IBO champion Anthony Joshua via unanimous decision in AJ’s own home city of London in September 2021. He then retained his titles via split decision in their rematch in June 2022.

Fury vs Usyk: How their last fights went

As mentioned, Fury’s last fight was against Ngannou in October 2023, who had earlier that year left the UFC, where he was previously a one-time UFC heavyweight champion.

Ngannou did shock all watching with his performance, even dropping Fury at one point. Fury came away with the win in the end via split decision, something which many contested at the time and still do but without properly factoring in Fury’s desire for a close fight.

Considering Ngannou went on to lose to Joshua earlier this year via second-round KO, it’s fair to say had Fury prepared more seriously like he has been for Usyk, Ngannou wouldn’t have even heard the bell for the end of the first.

As for Usyk, his last fight was against Britain’s Daniel Dubois in August 2023, where he won via ninth-round KO, although the win came with some contention.

Dubbois dropped Usyk in the fifth round, although the referee deemed it to be a low blow and gave the Ukrainian the standard five minutes to recover. Usyk signalled he was ready to go but the referee told him to take more time, ultimately taking three minutes and 45 seconds to recover.

After that, Usyk went on to drop Dubbois to a knee twice in the eighth and ninth rounds, with the latter seeing the challenger unable to beat the count. 

Questions arose around if the low blow was the right call, although other former boxers weighed in and indeed did confirm the referee made the right call.

Fury vs Usyk: What’s at stake?

With Fury and Usyk holding all the major heavyweight titles between themselves, this fight will be for all the marbles.

It marks the first undisputed heavyweight title clash since Lennox Lewis beat Evander Hollyfield for the WBA, WBC and IBF titles in November 1999, although this will be the first instance of a four-belt undisputed heavyweight title clash.

Both fighters also have their undefeated records at stake, and we are likely to see one of them come to an end.

The two are also towards the end of their careers, 35 years old for Fury and 37 years old for Usyk. Fury has retired in the past after his fight against Whyte, although it never felt like a true retirement.

Possible retirement could come for the loser, while the victor is likely to go on to face Anthony Joshua, who is currently either first, second or third in the rankings for all the belts on offer.

Joshua Parker is also waiting in the wings as the current WBO interim heavyweight champion, so a bout to decide the full champion may be necessary.
