Oleksandr Usyk’s Manager Says Tyson Fury Has Agreed to Fight, Gunning for Winter in Saudi Arabia
Good news boxing fans … we’re one GIANT step closer to Oleksandr Usyk vs. Tyson Fury.
We spoke with Usyk’s manager Egis Klimas who tells Inside Fighting both sides have agreed to throw down … and now it’s all about ironing out the details.
Klimas says promoters are still trying to lock in a date — but are targeting “end of  or early .”
As for location, there have been rumblings it could go down in England — but Klimas says that’s unlikely.
“Probably gonna happen back in Saudi Arabia.”
Klimas says nothing in boxing is ever a done deal until the opening bell rings … but right now he says there’s an 80% chance it happens.
Of course, 35-year-old Usyk is coming off a heavyweight title fight victory over Anthony Joshua … and now he wants a crack at Fury’s belts!
Fury is 32-0-1 and has flirted with retirement — but it looks like the 34-year-old is down for one last throw-down!

Ty Dolla Sign Says He's 'Feeling Great' After Skateboarding Accident, Praises Muay Thai Star Rodtang
Ty Dolla Sign says he's feeling great after having a scary fall in a skateboarding accident last week that left the hip hop star hospitalized. Luckily, from the looks and sound of things, Ty is on the mend and even back to performing for fans, while also taking the time to dish out some love to one of the biggest MMA stars on the planet in the process.
Inside Fighting's Andrew Capucetti caught up with the "Still Sippin" rapper who was leaving dinner in Beverly HIlls, when he was asked about how he was feeling after wiping out on his skateboard.
It’s the boxing heavyweight showdown fans have been dying to see for years - and it may finally be coming to fruition. During an interview with talkSPORT, Egis Klimas gave boxing fans a reason to believe, stating that his team has “been in negotiations even before the [Chisora] fight” and that the deal is almost done.
Klimas predicts that the fight will happen before March and will most likely happen in the Middle East. As of the publishing of this article, no official announcement has been made.
Paddy Pimblett may have incorrectly predicted that Charles Oliveira would beat Islam Makhachev at UFC 280, but that didn't stop him from singing Islam's praises and even taking a parting shot at Charles in the process.
The 'UFC Baddy' was answering questions in Las Vegas for UFC 282 media day when asked about the upcoming super-fight between Alexander Volkanovski and Islam Makkhachev. Paddy was heaping the praises of the quality of the matchup, but also took it as an opportunity to harken back to Makhachev’s title fight against Charles Oliveira, and how many people on the internet would call out Paddy for picking Charles to win the fight.
