Promoter claims Tyson Fury is set to receive ‘take it leave it’ offer to fight Oleksandr Usyk

Alex Krassyuk has claimed that Tyson Fury is set to "receive a formal written offer" to fight Oleksandr Usyk in an undisputed world heavyweight title fight.

Oleksandr Usyk's promoter - Alex Krassyuk - has indicated that Tyson Fury will soon "receive a formal written offer" for the undisputed world title fight.

Usyk and Fury were in talks over a bout for the undisputed world heavyweight titles earlier this year. The fight was pencilled in for April but talks between the two parties ended up breaking down.

'The Cat' is now set to fight WBA mandatory Daniel Dubois on August 26 in Poland, while Fury's next opponent is yet to be announced.

It has been heavily reported in recent weeks that Saudi Arabia want to put on Usyk vs Fury and Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder on the same night in December.

Earlier this month, Usyk signed with Saudi Arabia's Skills Challenge Entertainment and it is hoped that this deal will make the Fury fight easier to make.
The Fury bout would have happened already if it was down to Usyk as talks initially ended due to the Brit's unrealistic financial demands.
Now Krassyuk has revealed that the next offer to Fury will be "take it or leave it".
"According to my knowledge, they will receive a formal written offer very soon. And it will be Tyson's decision whether to take it or leave it," Krassyuk told IFL TV.
"We've done everything possible to make this fight happen, and now the ball is on Tyson's side. It's a take it or leave it offer.
"If you take it, then you have a big fight - the biggest fight of your career. If you hesitate, or if you try to trade out something, or try to swing around, then it shows that you are not serious, and you have to relinquish the belt and retire.
"Not for one month, or one week like you usually do, probably forever."
