Although a contract has yet to be signed, Tyson Fury co-promoter Bob Arum says that a location for the highly anticipated heavyweight title fight between Fury and Oleksandr Usyk is being sought. “I think both of the fighters have agreed to the fight, I think the question is where the site will be,” Arum told Sky Sports. “That will be sorted out hopefully next week and we’ll have an announcement shortly.” Europe would be an obvious location for the match, as Fury is from Britain and Usyk is from Ukraine. As always with the sport of boxing, however, money is the top priority.
Hall of Fame fighter and Golden Boy Promotions honcho Oscar De La Hoya told FightHub’s Marcos Villegas that he believes an announcement for the highly anticipated Ryan Garcia-Gervonta Davis fight will come “in the next few days.” If true, that’s big news for fans, extremely big news. It’s been said for some time that the young, undefeated, hard hitting and very popular fighters are due to square off on April 15th. De La Hoya, who happens to be Garcia’s promoter, asserted to the Villegas that the fight truly is on the verge of being signed. “It’s not official yet,” said De La Hoya. “Will it get done? Yes it’s going to get done.”
