When is the Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk fight? Date, fight time, live stream & where to watch on TV

It’s been almost a quarter of a century since the Heavyweight division was unified, and after a battle with an MMA star, albeit a rather brutal one, we finally get to see Tyson Fury go head-to-head with one of the best in the business, Oleksandr Usyk.

The Ukrainian has been a dominant force over the last few years, securing a string of titles against Anthony Joshua, while also doing a spell on the front line in his homeland!

One of the biggest fights of the modern era, here’s all you need to know about the bout…

When is Fury v Usyk? Date and start time…

Despite a targeted date of December 23, Fury won’t be rushed back after his controversial win against Francis Ngannou, with a date of Saturday February 17, 2024 now confirmed for this huge heavyweight clash.

The fight will take place in Riyadh’s Kingdom Arena in Saudi Arabia, with the same sort of grand spectacle expected as Fury’s bout with the MMA star last time out.

Times are yet to be confirmed ahead of the fight, but you can probably expect a ring walk at around 10.30pm UK time.

How to watch and live stream Fury v Usyk

It’s the biggest fight in boxing, so while not confirmed, you can almost certainly expect the fight to be pay per view. That will be on TNT Sports due to Fury and promotor Frank Warren’s deal with the channel.

Fury’s fight against Ngannou cost £21.95 on the TNT Sports Box Office, however, you can likely expect it to be a little higher than that. Further details will be released closer to the time.

In the USA, the fight will be live on ESPN due to Fury’s huge deal with the network.

Fury v Usyk Undercard

With the fight having only recently been announced, a full undercard will be announced in due course.

Tale of the tape: Fury v Usyk

Both fighters will be putting their belts and unbeaten record on the line in February, in what should be an epic encounter. It’s a fight that’s been a long time coming, while a rematch clause is already in place for fight number two.

As you’d expect, Fury is the taller and heavier man, with Usyk only stepping up from cruiserweight in 2019, wher he has since enjoyed five wins, four of those against Englishmen.

It’s orthodox vs southpaw, and it’ll be interesting to see how both fighters go about it come February 17…

Form coming into the fight

Some Fury fans could be a little worried following the Ngannou fight where he controversially was awarded a split decision. But it’s also fair to say that the Wythenshawe-born fighter will also be taking this one much more seriously.

Fury is currently far and away the bookies’ favourite, but Usyk is a tricky and tough character, who has already outclassed AJ on two previous occasions. As a heavyweight, he’s picked up one knockout in his five fights, last time out against Daniel Dubois in August 2023, but a debatable low blow call did cast shadow over the whole affair.

The formbook goes out of the window here though. They’re two elite fighters, both with zeros in the losses box and both with proven track records of stepping up in the big bouts. It’s going to be a firecracker in Riyadh…
