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 [2022] or early [2023].”

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.

Not bad!

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!

Let’s goooo!
