  • Simon Jordan Claims Tyson Fury Vs Oleksandr Usyk Is Off *Again* ‘Not Happening In December’

Simon Jordan claims Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk is off *again* - ‘not happening in December’

Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan has “been told” that Tyson Fury will not be fighting Oleksandr Usyk in December.

According to ex-Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan, Tyson Fury will not be fighting Oleksandr Usyk in December. 

Fury and Usyk faced off at Wembley last December following the Brit's comfortable victory over Derek Chisora in their trilogy bout.

It was initially hoped that the two world heavyweight champions would meet in an undisputed fight during the early stages of 2023.
The two parties were in talks for a couple of months, but the bout was finally postponed after Fury insisted on setting unrealistic deadlines and making unfair financial demands.
Usyk has since turned his attention to mandatory challenger Daniel Dubois, with the heavyweight rivals set to fight towards the end of August in Poland.
Fury has been teasing a huge announcement via his social media accounts in recent days, but it remains to be seen who he will fight next.

It has been reported in recent months that Saudi Arabia are hoping to host a blockbuster event in December that will be headlined by Fury vs Usyk and Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder.

But Jordan - who first revealed the details about this Middle East card - has claimed that Fury vs Usyk is not unlikely to take place in December.
"I'm being told that there's no way Tyson Fury's fighting in Saudi in December," he said on talkSPORT.
"And that there's a long way between this fight being made.
"I was the one that spoke initially about the principle of the four fighters fighting in this super fight situation in December.
"There's no offers been made. Now, those offers can be made relatively quickly, but they haven't been made.
"Discussions are ongoing, but I've been told by relatively reliable sources that this is not happening in December, this will not happen in December."
When asked if Joshua vs Wilder could go ahead without Fury vs Usyk, Jordan answered: "That may well be."
