Warren confirmed Fury vs Usyk will likely happen on April 29 at Wembley

The biggest stumbling block seemed to be the purse split, with Usyk reportedly agreeing a 70/30, in Fury’s favour, following a series of social media exchanges.

The WBA were set to order the Ukrainian to fight Daniel Dubois, his mandatory challenger, but released a statement confirming an 11th hour deal had been struck.

Fury’s co-promoter, Warren, joined talkSPORT’s Fight Night to give an update on the very latest.

He said: “It’s on. Subject to the contracts being sorted out, everyone is on the same page. We just have to keep moving it along and I’m sure it will happens.”

Warren also confirmed that both men have agreed the purse split, but did not divulge what that was.

When asked if it would still be going ahead on April 29, Warren said: “That would be the date for the fight. At one stage I wasn’t sure if Tyson would be fit for it, but he’s okay.

“The bottom line is they have both come out and said what they want to do and obviously we have to get the contracts signed. Everybody is working on that to get everything finalised.”

Warren also believes the Gypsy King deserves great credit for making sure to get this fight on, despite facing criticism for his purse demands.

He continued: “Everyone wants to see the fight. Everybody should take their hat off to Tyson Fury because he’s the only heavyweight since going back to those great glory days of Ali, Foreman and Frazier that has fought the best around of the generations he’s been in.


‘The Gypsy King’ will return to the ring in April, this time for all the belts

“He’s fought against Klitschko, who was the best of his generation, went to his back yard and beat him.

“The longest reigning heavyweight in Deontay Wilder – went to the states not once but three times and beat him.

“Now he’s stepping up to the guy who has had two wins over Joshua and has three belts.

“You have to take your hat off to Tyson, we talk about Lennox Lewis, but he never fought Riddick Bowe, never fought Mike Tyson until he was well past his best.

“I’m not taking anything away from Lennox he was a great fighter. Tyson has fought all these guys at their best.”

He added: “Once we get it all finalised… it’s great. It’s the first time four belts have been on the line. It’s the biggest heavyweight fight in goodness knows how many years.


Usyk also wants Fury to donate £1m to Ukraine

“Both are undefeated and both in their prime. It will be a fantastic event and the highest grossing event ever to take place at Wembley, beating the previous one.

“I’m not talking about about boxing but a one-off event. The previous one was last April again with Tyson.

“He’s a megastar and I’m delighted for him. 

“People should acknowledge in him we’ve got a fighter who doesn’t duck anybody.”
