Background: The buzz surrounding a Fury-Usyk clash for the undisputed heavyweight crown began after Usyk’s victory over Anthony Joshua in September 2021. Originally scheduled for February 17, the fight was postponed due to Fury sustaining a cut during sparring. Fury’s recent split decision win over Francis Ngannou in the MMA star’s boxing debut raised doubts about his preparedness, but the Englishman appears to be in peak physical condition for Saturday’s bout. Usyk, on the other hand, faced controversy in his last fight against Daniel Dubois, with a disputed low blow leading to a dramatic recovery and eventual victory. Both fighters are hungry to prove themselves and secure their place in boxing history.

Prediction: Fury to win by unanimous decision.

Don’t miss this epic clash between two heavyweight giants as they vie for supremacy and the chance to etch their names in the annals of boxing lore.
