Usyk vs. Fury could happen on Dec. 3, if not, Deontay Wilder is the target

Usyk vs. Fury: Alexander Usyk and Tyson Fury Could Fight for Undisputed Heavyweight Boxing the throne this year, despite previous doubts about the date.

Usyk initially said he wanted to spend time with his family and would not be open to fight on December 3. This scenario led Fury to target Anthony Joshua instead.

Usyk vs. Fury

However, Usyk’s manager Aegis Klimas says Usyk is ready to submit to the demands of the WBC title before the end of the year.

“I hope everything will work out [with fighting Tyson Fury]. We’ll see,” Klimas told talkSPORT.

“I hear that he wants to fight on December 3, which we don’t have a big problem with. But on the other hand, this is boxing and things happen.

“You can break arms, legs and so on, so it’s hard to predict. But fingers crossed we’ll be ready.

“From our side, we will be ready one hundred percent. So don’t blame our team if the fight doesn’t happen.”

Usyk vs. Wilder

As previously reported, if Usyk is unable to knock Fury down, he will target knockout master Deontay Wilder after his October 15 fight with Robert Helenius.

“It’s a very possible fight,” Klimas said, “in fact, [Usyk] called and said, “If Fury’s not available and we can’t fight Fury, I’d like to fight Deontay Wilder.”

“So I asked him why and he said he was a risk fighter. I like it.”

Fans would love to see Usyk face any of these top names. However, the deadline for “The Gypsy King” is fast approaching.

Fury kicked off camp this week for those who will be in the opposite corner. Right now Mahmud Char looks the most likely.

Joshua is stretching and Usyk isn’t even training yet. Therefore, fans will be forced to wait longer for the fight in the top heavyweight.

Wilder vs. Ruiz

It’s also no secret that Al Haymon wants Wilder to fight Andy Ruiz Jr. following the Mexican-American’s win over Luis Ortiz.

Heyman is planning a massive pay-per-view in February 2023 that will pit Wilder and Ruiz against the mandatory World Boxing Council.

The top two heavyweights in the WBC rankings will then fight for that shot to challenge Fury for the WBC title.

As one of the biggest punchers on the planet, Wilder should shine against Helenius at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. He can then turn his attention to Ruiz.

With Ruiz only having one fight left with Heyman, it’s doubtful that promoter Premier Boxing Champions will want Wilder to face anyone else.

Wilder’s trainer, Malik Scott, is currently putting the finishing touches on camp before it’s time to head to New York.

The last time Tuscaloosa’s best fought in one of his favorite arenas, he knocked out Dominic Breazeale in the first round.

As always, a huge right hand did the damage.
